Forged magnesium wheels: maximum stability with minimal weight

Forged magnesium wheels: maximum stability with minimal weight

The light alloy rim forge mbDESIGN from Gelnhausen in Hessen, Germany, punctuates with an innovative world premiere: The unique mbDESIGN rims MF1 will be presented in a new and patented Forging technology made of magnesium. This innovative production technology has numerous advantages: wheels made of the high-tech material magnesium combine maximum stability with minimal weight.

They are up to 30 percent lighter than their conventional aluminum counterparts. For example, the filigree MF1 wheel measuring 8.0 × 19 inches ET45 weighs only a slim 7.2 kilogram - with a load capacity of 600 kilogram.

The low weight of the forged magnesium rims leads to a reduction in unsprung masses, which is reflected in a noticeably improved driving dynamics of the car and a smoother running of the wheels.

In addition, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of the vehicles are reduced, with e-cars, the range increases. In addition, Forged Magnesium Rims manufacturing technology allows designers maximum design flexibility.

Incidentally, these benefits are not paid for with an exorbitant price: The Forged magnesium rims from mbDESIGN are offered at a lower price than some aluminum forged wheels: mbDESIGN announces a purchase price of 680 euros for the MF1 in 8.0 × 19 inches.

The MF1 will be available in 7,5x17 ", 7,5x18", 8,0x19 "8,5x19" and 9x19 ", the 20" Varaine is planned for 2020. Of course they also tested the Magensium wheels by mbDESIGN and in 8x19 "even with an ABE.
