R555 Flow-Formed Wheel

Updated: Oct 18, 2023

Our R555 New Wheel with flow-form technology was designed to be lighter, stronger, and have a greater resistance to shock. By using flow form method we were able to improve the strength of the wheel and reduce weight by up to 15%-20%. 


This year we CNC engraved out Option Lab on one of the 5 spoke

We also laser printed the specification on the back to save some weight costs


Flow-Forming starts with a specialized low pressure casting of the wheel. The initial casting features a raw and thick barrel section. The next step involves the machine to heat and spin the wheel while pressure is applied to the barrel. This process strengthens the barrel to produce a wheel that is much stronger than your typical gravity cast at a far less cost compared to forged.
