DYMAG
has developed a magnesium die cast hollow spoke wheel which is both lighter and stiffer than even solid forged magnesium products.

GP wheel cut away

DYMAG production overview: Dymag wheels are cast using a five piece die. Dymag wheels are then visually inspected. Dymag wheels that pass are allowed to cool naturally. Dymag wheels are then dye penetrant tested. Dymag wheels are then heat treated for 24 hours in an inert gas. Dymag wheels are then machined. Dymag wheels are then dye penetrant tested again. Dymag wheels are then leak tested. Dymag wheels are then chromate dipped, giving the classic gray color and sealing the wheel. Dymag wheels are then independently X-rayed and stamped with its own serial number.


Carbon wheels

DYMAG Carbon Fiber Wheels: Dymag carbon fiber wheels are 50% lighter than magnesium wheels and 30% stronger! Dymag will say little else about them, (it's secret). Dymag carbon fiber wheels are DOT (street legal) approved.



H Section

DYMAG H section magnesium wheels: Dymag H section magnesium wheels are the original design that was used by many of the Superbike teams of the 1980's. This wheel is also available for many shaft drive applications.


This is the DYMAG standard. This far exceeds any other manufacturer. When you, the customer purchases DYMAG motorcycle wheels you have acquired the highest quality product available.

Weight advantage of Dymag™ Racing wheels over standard OEM1 wheels.

The benefit of reducing the weight of wheels is profound. It is viewed that 1 kg of unsprung weight reduction is the equivalent of several kg (up to 8kg in an Indycar). Add to this the reduction in gyroscopic effect, which improves handling in cornering, as it is easier to turn into the corner, and improved acceleration, as there is less mass to accelerate. These are the reasons why all top motorcycle and car racing teams use magnesium wheels, and increasingly carbon fibre wheels.

Dymag™ Carbon Fibre wheels have their mass concentrated at the hub, with the wheel itself weighing only 1.4 kg without hub and bearing mounting, compared with 4.0 kg (without bearings) for the standard wheels - a 65% reduction in the weight of the rotating mass. The handling performance improvement is consequently dramatic. Dymag’s racing wheels are also the stiffest and strongest wheels, having been used by the Isle of Man TT Superbike Formula One Winners for the past four years.

The following tables offer indicative weight savings on the performance products in our range. It is not possible to compile a full list of wheel weights, as these vary according to specification. We have bench marked two of the more popular specifications against original factory equipment (OEM) and the various Dymag products. These tables give a guide to the degree of weight saving that can be expected from a switch to Dymag Racing Wheels. All wheels are JWL/BSAU50 certified for road use.

Wheels Weights
The standard factory spec wheels are typically 17” x 3.0” Fronts, with 17” x 5.0” Rears. We recommend moving to 17” x 3.5” Front and 17” x 5.5” or 6.0” Rear. The extra size improves traction and tyre performance. Remember the Dymag wheels are 0.5 to 1.0 inch wider

Example 1: Single Swing Arm Specification: Ducati 916/996

OEM1 weights: 17” x 3.0” Front: 4.4 kg or 9.76 lb plus 17” x 5.0” Rear: 6.0 kg or 13.3 lb gives total weight: 10.4 kg or 22.64 lb.
