Bead Knurling

KNURLED BEAD SEAT.

DRIFZ knurled bead seat improves the grip between the tire and rim reducing tire slippage. This achieves the highest performance during extreme acceleration and deceleration.

FEA ANALYSIS.

FEA stands for finite element analysis, a commonly used method for multi-physics problems. Finite element analysis is defined as a numerical method which provides solutions to problems that would otherwise be difficult to obtain. In simple terms, FEA is a faster way to get results to problems that are hard to solve.

Why is FEA Important?

Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computerized method for predicting how a product reacts to real-world forces, vibration, heat, fluid flow, and other physical effects. Finite element analysis shows whether a product will break, wear out, or work the way it was designed.

FEA Testing
Structural Ridges

Structural Ridges.

Strengthened Ribbed ridges have been designed into the barrel to benefit the structural integrity and durability of the wheel.

Back Padding

RACE POCKETING.

Strategic pocketing was implemented to minimize weight without compromising the strength, reliability and safety of the wheel.

FLOW FORMING PROCESS

  • Flow Formed Phase 1

    PHASE 1

    The Flow Forming Technology process applies extensive heat and pressure using three individual rollers to the wheel while spinning after wheel casting to begin the shaping process.

  • Flow Formed Phase 3

    PHASE 2

    This phase the barrel is stretched and compressed which increases tensile strength which is similar to traditional forging processes.

  • Flow Formed Final Cut Away

    FINAL PRODUCT

    The final result is a lighter, stronger wheel. This wheel has increased elongation and greater shock resistance making this a great performance wheel.
