Kühl Wheels - THE ALTERNATIVE STEEL WHEEL
Los Gatos, CA Epilogics is pleased to introduce a new light weight, stylized steel wheel. Invented in Switzerland, Kühl Wheels have the potential to bolster the presently shrinking steel wheel market by offering a lighter weight and more attractive design than the traditional stamped steel wheel.
This patent pending technology saves weight with a unique spider (center section) design which is comprised of a series of spokes with a rectangular cross section. Utilizing standard steel rims, Kühl Wheel prototypes weighed in at 20% less than conventional steel wheels. In motion, the center section, or spider, seems to disappear due to its airy design. This arrangement also offers greater flexibility in wheel trim design over conventional steel wheels.
Founded in 1988, The Epilogics Group develops products based on proprietary, patented technologies, and licenses these technologies to manufacturers in the automotive industry. Best known for its Mechanical DiodeÒ one-way clutch (now a trademark of Means Industries, Inc.) which is in high volume production under license to Means Industries, Epilogics is now seeking licensees to commercialize its new Kühl Wheels technology.
