Set up in 1988 as an aluminium and magnesium foundry, Marchesini is a company that manufactures high performance motorcycle wheels and has quickly become the most famous racing and road wheel brand in the world.
Marchesini has concentrated on technological innovation from the day it was first set up. Its main objectives are performance and reliability with lightness, rigidity and low roll inertia not far behind.
This is a complex combination obtained using forged aluminium and magnesium alloys and applying innovative design and structural analysis methods that go hand in hand with tests on the test bench and on the track. Marchesini is the first company in its field to use multiforging, a multidirectional forging process that creates an extremely compact, lightweight material with excellent mechanical properties.
It compares very well with carbon wheels. Marchesini magnesium wheels manufactured using multiforging weigh the same as carbon wheels but offer significantly higher levels of safety and performance.
