The Enkei RPF1 Wheels
The Enkei Wheels RPF1 has been developed based on the influence and experience on Grand Prix races and features lightweight wheels that have extreme strength and durability, making it an excellent circuit and street wheel with top-notch quality.
The F1 Replica
The McLaren Mercedes Formula One team is known all over the world and their official supplier of high-quality wheels is Enkei. The companys RPF1 was created by utilizing the same technology used for Formula One racing wheels, ensuring that these are high-quality and top-notch wheels perfect for race cars of all types.
The Twin Spokes the companys dual open stance spoke design is mainly used for the McLaren Mercedes Formula One race wheel. These twin spokes can achieve and handle better stress distribution during hard braking, curves, and especially during extreme race driving.
The pocket design and style surrounding the bolt circles of the Enkei RPF1 raises rigidity while keeping the wheels cool even during aggressive and rough race driving. Also, the RPF1 are generally made to be lightweight despite having enough strength specifically for track or street use. Additionally, these are one of the lightest cast-aluminum wheels that can be purchased on the market.
Enkeis racing wheel series like the Enkei RPF1 are all produced using the Most Advanced Technology process or MAT; it is a new technology used mainly for the production of aluminum wheels by fusing Enkeis Most Advanced Production (MAP) and their flow forming technology of forging. The companys MAP is a highly-automated system where each of its processes is connected via a one-piece flowing system that transfers wheels from the first process, which is melting, then the heat treatment, and after, the machining process.
The processing technique of spinning the wheels rim versus casting it to the shape then elongating it produces a finer and even more aluminum-like structure; this ensures that their wheels will stay strong despite being lightweight. Enkeis complete MAT process also has an extreme impact when it comes to the aluminums microstructure, thus resulting in an excellent improvement of the materials mechanical property.
When a vehicles tires and wheels get even bigger, using the MAT process for manufacturing and developing these become even more vital. So for the company to lessen weight under the suspension of a vehicle, they ensure that larger wheels remain light yet durable.
All of the wheels from Enkei, including their Enkei RPF1, are all created effectively and efficiently to pass numerous rigorous tests. In fact, the company has even created their own testing standards which they named the Spec-E, standards that are tougher and more tenacious compared to the requirements of the JWL.
