Carbon Fiber Combined With Forged Aluminum
Ohio’s Forgeline Motorsports and England’s Dymag Performance Wheels announced their new joint partnership and will be joining forces to continue the successful Forgeline’s revolutionary Carbon+Forged wheel series.
Forgeline Carbon+Forged wheels combine weight-optimized CNC-machined forged aluminum centres with revolutionary proprietary carbon fiber barrels which delivers the ultimate in technological advancement, exclusive styling, and unparalleled lightweight performance. The Series now has four separate models.
Dymag will manufacture and supply the carbon fiber wheel barrels, and Forgeline will continue to engineer and precision-machine custom made-to-order wheel centres from 6061-T6 forged aluminum. The new flange design from Dymag allows these separate parts of the Carbon+Forged Series wheels to bolt together to create one incredibly strong, lightweight, and unique wheel that’s individually engineered, machined, and finished for each customer and each unique vehicle application.
“Our partnership with Dymag is natural fit,” says Forgeline President Dave Schardt. “Both companies have a long history of innovation, technological advancement, and a deep passion for Motorsport. The engineering that goes into the testing and production of these wheels is very complex, and It has been a pleasure working with the Dymag team and merging our respective capabilities. We look forward to using their flanged style carbon fiber barrels and for the opportunity to employ their technology into our growing line of Carbon+Forged hybrid material wheels.”
“Dymag has led the industry in carbon wheel technology for over 20 years, launching the first commercial carbon auto wheel in 1996 and the first carbon hybrid auto wheel in 2004. We are delighted that Forgeline is now partnering with us to utilize our carbon technology,” said Chris Shelley, CEO Dymag.
