The RFX13 features a 10 pocketed spoke design. This was created with one thing in mind, performance. These pocketed spokes aren’t just aesthetically pleasing but optimizes air flow for the brakes.
The RFX Series wheels are constructed with Cross Forged technology. Cross Forged wheels are a type of high-performance wheel that are created using a unique manufacturing process. This process involves taking a cast wheel and heating it to a high temperature, then using a machine to press the heated wheel between two rollers that are perpendicular to each other (thus the name “cross-forged”).
This process compresses and stretches the metal in different directions, resulting in a wheel that is stronger, lighter, and more precise than a traditional cast wheel.
Additionally, the Cross Forged technology allows for more precise control over the design of the wheel, which can result in unique and visually striking designs. The cross forged technology is used for high-performance, luxury and racing wheels.
Step 1: Starting with a solid block of aluminum immense amounts of pressure is applied to “forge” the aluminum block into a wheel. The aluminum is forged into a disc using extreme heat and pressure.
Step 2: Once the disc starts to take shape, it is then flow formed into a spun blank. The spun black is heat treated to the specific conditions. The heated treated spun blank is then stretched to the customers final configuration.
Step 3: Finally the wheel is now drilled and the design is cut. After cutting, multiple coats of paint are applied to ensure a perfect, long lasting finish.
