V iele light alloy wheels cite stylistic devices from motorsport and look accordingly martial. The AEZ designers pursue a completely different form of dynamism. In search of luxury and elegance, they took fast sailing yachts as a model and named the rims according to nautical terms and picturesque places on the water. Examples are the wheels Yacht, Antigua, Portofino and Sydney.
The German company AEZ , which produces its cast wheels according to the highest quality standards in Neuenrade im Sauerland manufactures, has also actively supported regatta for several years. The sustainable commitment extends from promoting the 18-year-old Olympic participant Lara Vadlau in the 470 class to her own boat AUT44 in the legendary RC44 Cup: The agile carbon ships reached up to 25 knots (approx. 46 km /h).
Despite their several thousand years of development history, sailing boats can also stand for high-tech. The same applies to the much older wheel, which is constantly being further developed in the form of the modern light alloy wheel from AEZ. Lightweight construction plays a major role in the RC44 Cup: The lower the so-called unsprung masses on a car, the more agile, comfortable and economical it becomes. The Swiss innovation forge Rinspeed has therefore been using AEZ's know-how for its environmentally friendly concept vehicles for many years. In 2012, the modularly expandable Dock + Go electric car was created, with its low weight being a decisive factor for its range. A similar project was the UC? , for which AEZ had also designed a special bike. As AEZ Valencia, this rim later found its way into series production. With a little skill and luck, one of three sets of Valencia may soon come to you for free. Click here for the memory Competition.
