About Dymag:

Started in the early 1970s, Dymag quickly moved to the technology pinnacle developing diecast magnesium wheels for Formula One and inventing the world’s first three spoke Magnesium motorcycle racing wheels. Dymag’s rich heritage on four and two wheels ranges from Formula 1, IndyCar, Rally/RAID, Moto GP, Superbikes, Isle of Man TT champions and race winners driving and riding to victory on Dymags, as well as many production Supercar manufacturers.

Building on their success, Dymag expanded into manufacturing Forged Magnesium wheels, Forged Aluminium wheels and finally developed lightweight Carbon Composite motorcycle and auto wheels with an equally enthusiastic response from bike and auto owners around the world.

The company was re-launched in 2011 after current CEO Chris Shelley and other key former employees took control of Dymag. Very soon after it was successfully involved in re-entering the motorcycle racing and aftermarket, supplying the winning BMW S1000RR ridden by Michael Dunlop in the 2014 Isle of Man TT, and leading British Superbike Teams, a victory repeated in 2016 with the faster ever lap at the IOM TT Senior Superbike race of 133.393mph average speed, and again in 2017 this time on the new Suzuki GSXR.

Always at the forefront of materials technology over the past 30 years Dymag has progressed from its beginnings using diecast magnesium into forged magnesium and aluminium, before establishing itself as the world’s leading carbon auto and motorcycle wheel manufacturer in the 90s and 2000s.
