The new Apex-6 design is an ultralight modern Superbike wheel designed for top level road racing, yet is also street legal. Every design element is intended to decrease weight while retaining strength and style. The Apex-6 is the first ever fully monolithic, hollow hub Superbike wheel made 100% in the USA..and the lightest forged aluminum DOT wheel set on the market. The ultralight, mass centric design results in a pure performance difference you will actually feel immediately. All design, Forging, heat treating, turning, machining, anodizing and final assembly all happen in the USA. Core Moto spent 16 months developing the Apex-6 with 1 goal in mind...To produce the very best forged aluminum wheel in the world. The level of detail in design and machining of the wheel and components is unmatched in the high performance motorcycle wheel market.

Note: Anodized colors can vary from batch to batch. Wheel sets are paired as front and rear sets in the anodize process... Very slight shade differences from front to rear may be present, but will remain under a 5% range. In most cases this is undetectable when the wheels are mounted on the vehicle.

Performance Difference:
Decreasing unsprung weight (weight below the suspension) and rotational mass greatly improves several responsive aspects of usable performance you can actually feel. The Apex-6 Wheel was designed to reduce overall weight, while also centralizing mass to decrease rotational forces. These weight reductions result in improved suspension response, lighter handling, faster acceleration and shorter braking distances.

About the wheel
CAD Designed one piece proprietary Forged monolithic hub design. Core Moto makes true forged wheels, purpose built for performance. Rather than using market available generic forged blanks, Core Moto wheel forgings are made specific to each model we offer. Our forgings are produced in the USA by the same forging plant that makes wheels for Pagani, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini and Mercedes AMG to name a few . Although a custom forging limits the amount of spoke designs and sizes we can offer, it nets a better quality product overall. Each wheel starts out as an aluminum billet that does not resemble a wheel. This Billet is then heated and placed into a 6000 ton controlled Hydraulic constant pressure forge and roll machine, This creates the basic shape of the wheel profile. This process is highly controlled to distribute the grain of the metal in a way that optimizes the strength of the wheel requiring less material (weight) needed in the final product. Constant pressure forging creates a more controlled and repeatable product than traditional drop forging. After forging, the near net forged blanks are turned and milled by 3 and 5 Axis CNC machines and carbide cutting tools to remove material and give the wheel its final shape.
