DAYTON, OH – April 18, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Forgeline Motorsports, the leading manufacturer of premium one-piece forged aluminum wheels, is expanding its competition series product line for professional racers with the VX1-R wheel. Ideal for driving schools, club racers and autocross participants, the VX1-R offers racers a new and unique style with the same advanced wheel technology that has made Forgeline an innovator in the market.
Following in the tradition of Forgeline’s highly popular GS1R race wheel, the new VX1-R wheel features a one-piece forged monoblock construction and a motorsport engineered Y-spoke design with severe angles and chamfered machining details. The design allows plenty of room for caliper clearance and extreme brake fitment as well as faster wheel changes. Constructed to hold up under the stresses of motorsport competition, the VX1-R is light weight, has extremely low deflection under load and is highly fatigue-resistant with a 2,100 lb. street-tire load rating.
Because the wheel is designed for the track, it has additional material machined from the center area for greater weight reduction and improved access to the lugs. The VX1-R does not accept a center cap.
Forgeline’s new VX1-R is machined from a single forging of 6061-T6 aluminum for light-weight strength, durability, and exceptional competitive driving performance in 18, 19 and 20-inch diameters with a range of widths and offsets. Depending on the size, the race wheel may be available in deep or shallow concave profiles. Striking finish options, including tinted gold, blue and red are available in addition to the standard silver, graphite and black powder coat finishes.
Forgeline has drawn upon its more than 20 years of racing experience to develop the new VX1-R racing wheel. The fully-forged one-piece monoblock wheel was created with the company’s computer-simulated FEA design process, which optimizes quality and strength-to-weight ratio to produce forgings that are 40% stronger than cast aluminum.
The VX1-R and other Forgeline wheels are backed by the company’s state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and reliable customer service. All Forgeline wheels are available through a nationwide network of retail partners.
