ATELIER FORGED is the new top-of-the-line OZ Racing family of wheels, the culmination of extensive racing experience, ongoing research into the best materials and an obsession with details. OZ ZEUS epitomizes this concept.
Their exceptional design qualities and cutting-edge production process magnify the sportiness, performance and exclusivity of this wheel. ZEUS production begins with a forged billet to which the exclusive OZ HLT technology is applied – combined, these two technologies imbue Zeus with the qualities of light weight and high mechanical resistance and strength that result in top performance. Use of the same 5-axis mills employed in creating racing wheels represents the avantgarde of wheel technology, with UNDERCUT and SIDECUT details ensuring unprecedented lightness. Their already heightened performance characteristics – thanks to the superior OZ technology employed – are further enhanced by an aggressive design. The open construction of the 5 light, streamlined double spokes reveals the more powerful brake calipers typical of the super cars this wheel was designed for.
Precisely because it is a member of the exclusive ATELIER FORGED family of products, ZEUS offer enthusiasts a high degree of customization.ZEUS are crafted with today’s number one aesthetic requirement in mind: concavity. Even the STANDARD profile offers a slight concavity that is even more pronounced in the CONCAVE and DEEP CONCAVE profiles.
Aficionados can choose one of the available three profiles, depending on which is more technically compatible with their car. The ZEUS applications are all designed to create a more aggressive look, with optimized OFFSET to improve on the original trimThe finishes for this wheel were also designed to meet different needs and preferences: Matt Black, Matt Dark Graphite and Race Grey – a finish well-known to discriminating OZ fans who choose understated style. For those seeking a truly unique and innovative car/wheel color combination OZ offers some special finishes: Hand Brushed, with a uniquely detailed effect obtained by hand-brushing and a final, protective clear coat; Black Anodized, lending the wheel a more substantial appearance; and Ceramic Polished, a special tumbling process used to generate a mirror-like effectAnd if any doubt remains as to ZEUS’s Olympian wheel lineage, a small but important detail like the center cap will erase that doubt.
In forged aluminum and crafted specifically for the new forged wheels, it was inspired by the idea of an ingot – a precious material for equally precious wheels. The embossed OZ logo symbolizes the forging process, which sets apart this distillation of technology and exclusivity BMW and BMW M, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche applications will be launched as initial applications, with fitments for further vehicles to follow, designed in 19”, 20” and 21” diameters.
