Just like the rest of the APEX wheel line, the EC-7 is produced using the Flow-forming technique. Flow-forming, which has also been called 'spin forging', produces a barrel with similar strength to that of a fully forged wheel. This significantly reduces weight in the barrel, which has the greatest impact on rotational mass and performance. By combining the strength of a forged, lightweight barrel and a more robust face design, we've produced a wheel that welcomes endurance racing, hard driving, and even potholes. These wheels weigh approximately 20lbs.
The EC-7 was designed for long-term durability without sacrificing performance and fit. More and more, faster and heavier cars are being used for racing, track days, and daily driving. Because of this, engineering the EC-7 to handle extreme abuse on the track and street, while keeping the wheel lightweight, was vital. Along with a wide range of model-specific fitments and increased brake clearance, the EC-7 is a perfect compliment to the APEX ARC-8. These wheel weight approximately.
