We Debut the New ZO1R Monoblock Racing Wheel at the 2018 PRI Show
Did you think we were done engineering new wheels for 2018? Well think again, because we are excited to announce that we are introducing our newest load-rated racing wheel, the ZO1R, at the 2018 PRI Show, in Indianapolis, Indiana, December 6-8.
Forgeline quite literally formed with the express purpose of manufacturing custom made-to-order racing wheels in the USA, way back in 1994. And since then, our commitment to motorsport engineering has continued to produce exceptional products that expand the limits of on-track performance (it’s no secret that our GS1R wheel is used by the fastest GT4 road racing teams and is often affectionately known as “the fastest wheel in motorsports”). So it makes sense that we would introduce our latest serious track wheel, the ZO1R, at the PRI Show – which caters to a serious racing audience.
The ZO1R features a classic split five-spoke design, open lug center (to reduce mass and allow for easier access to lug nuts), concave profile, I-beamed spokes, and chamfered outer edge. The Forgeline ZO1R is a fully-forged one-piece monoblock wheel that utilizes manufacturing technology similar to our very successful GS1R wheel and is engineered to allow plenty of room for caliper clearance and extreme brake fitment. And the one-piece monoblock forging and computer-simulated FEA design process yield a wheel that is lightweight, stiff, and has excellent fatigue strength, including a 2100 lb per wheel static load rating.
The ZO1R is currently available in 18, 19, 20, and 21-inch diameters with a range of widths and offsets. It can be made to accommodate most 5-lug and centerlock applications. And just like any Forgeline wheel, the ZO1R is available with fully customizable finish options.
