*Cattiva R forged magnesium race wheels are made specifically for race use and are even lighter than Cattiva forged magnesium street wheels. Not legal for street use.
*Forged magnesium reduces weight compared to forged aluminum wheels
and even some carbon fiber wheels, which decreases the moment of inertia resulting quicker acceleration and braking, lowers un-sprung weight and gyroscopic effect to provide quicker turn-in and more positive handling.
*FEM (finite element method) designed to minimize weight and increase strength and rigidity.
*Specially treated billet magnesium alloy is
bi-directionally forged, resulting in a more uniform and stronger metal structure.
*Heat treating, shot peening and CNC finishing are done in house resulting in an extremely lightweight and rigid wheel.
[OZ wheels are AMA homologated for racing and also used in World Super Bike, MotoGP 125, Moto2, British Super Bike, IDM German Superbike and Bol d'Or 24-hour endurance racing.
*Included parts: bearings, valve stems, axle spacers (as applicable) and sprocket adaptor.
