Forgeline and Dymag Combine Carbon Fiber with Forged Aluminum
Dayton, Ohio’s Forgeline Motorsports and Wiltshire, England’s Dymag Performance Wheels have chosen the 2018 SEMA Show to announce their new joint partnership. Effective immediately, Forgeline and Dymag will be joining forces to continue the success of Forgeline’s revolutionary Carbon+Forged wheel series.
Forgeline Carbon+Forged wheels combine weight-optimized CNC-machined forged aluminum centers with revolutionary proprietary carbon fiber barrels to deliver the ultimate in technological advancement, exclusive styling, and unparalleled lightweight performance. Forgeline first launched their Carbon+Forged Series at the 2016 SEMA Show, where it earned a Global Media Award as a product that has mass appeal to a global audience. Since then, Forgeline has continued to expand the series, now offering at least 4 separate models.
Under the new partnership, Dymag will manufacture and supply their time-tested carbon fiber wheel barrels, and Forgeline will continue to engineer and precision-machine custom made-to-order wheel centers from 6061-T6 forged aluminum. Dymag’s unique flange design (developed in collaboration with the engineering team at Forgeline) allows these separate parts of the Carbon+Forged Series wheels to bolt together to create one incredibly strong, incredibly lightweight, and incredibly unique wheel that is 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 moto 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 of Dymag.
Forgeline’s line of Carbon+Forged wheels (along with their Dymag carbon fiber barrels) will be on display, in the Forgeline booth, at the 2018 SEMA Show. Show participants should visit them in booth #25151, located near the back wall of the Central Hall.
