Our lightweight technology produces wheels that are lighter in weight compared to a conventional cast construction, yet substantially stronger. The majority of surplus weight can be shaved by the use of less but stronger aluminum. In addition, we meticulously reduce the weight of the wheel utilizing back-pad pocketing as well as front and rear spoke pocketing.
With our wheels being constructed using flow forged technology, our wheels are substantially stronger than our competitors cast wheels. Cast wheels tend to be less durable, brittle, prone to cracking and failure. With our flow forged wheels being more durable, you won't have to worry about any cracks when you're on the trail, desert or on your daily commute.
The flow forging process we use creates very lightweight wheels compared to the competition. In the end, you end up with a wheel capable of handling higher load ratings than a cast wheel. With a flow forged wheel, you save about 25% weight compared to a cast wheel of the same size and spec. Lighter weight wheels equals reduced unsprung and rotational mass.
Example: A competitors 17x9 cast wheel weights in at about 38.5 lbs, while our similar spec 17x9 flow forged wheel weighs in at about 27.6 lbs. That's almost at 11 lbs difference!
