Going for the championship: BRAID is the new wheel supplier to Hansen Motorsport for their World Rallycross Team.
The new electric era has begun. FIA World RX adopted full electrification in the headlining category this year as the series moves towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future. Not only that, but the cars are the most powerful and spectacular ever seen in the championship, generating 500kW – the equivalent of 680bhp – and 880Nm of instant torque at the touch of a pedal, resulting in eye-watering acceleration faster even than Formula 1.
BRAID will support Hansen World RX Team through its way for the championship crown. Under this agreement, BRAID have taken the responsibility to design, develop and produce a Forged Rallycross wheel to maximize the performance of their new beast, the Peugeot 208 RX1e.
The Forged RX 17” wheel is manufactured using aerospace-grade 6061-T6 aluminium. Each piece is forged with a 10,000-ton press, then precisely CNC-machined. Special features, such as improved rim profile to run low pressure and anti-rotation system, are also added to enhance is excellent performance.
