Delicate and powerful
-ALL NEW GNOSIS IS205 DEBUT-
Featuring the spokes ends extended to the wheel flange to give the wheel a sense of unity, the GNOSIS IS205 is the monoblock wheel that achieves delicate yet powerful look, which cannot be achieved with a multi-piece technology.
The intersection of the Y-shaped left spoke and side spoke is located on the center line. This gives the wheel a strong twist look. The valve stem is also slightly shifted from the center line, which further contributes to a sense of twist.
Furthermore, the targeted size variations provide an ideal wheel balance.
Introducing seven features of the GNOSIS IS205.
① 3D brushed finish provides a delicate and beautiful look from every angle.
② Placing side spokes parallel to the Y-shaped twin spokes creates more complex twisted openings.
③ 'WFT (WORK FLOW FORMING TECHNOLOGY)' is engraved on the rim flange.
The WFT manufacturing method, which is used for WORK EMOTION and other sports wheels, guarantees outstanding strength.
④ Each spoke end is designed to look longer by connecting it to the flange three-dimensionally.
⑤ Exclusive center cap with an emblem of the GNOSIS series. Buffed center cap gives perfect harmony to BRU (brushed) finish and adds an accent to BPA (Trans Gray Clear) finish.
⑥ Each spoke folds into a center creating a concave profile. With the side spokes placed one step lower than the top surface, it emphasizes the 3-D look even further.
⑦ By scraping off waste thickness behind the spokes, the GNOSIS IS205 is 9% lighter compared to the previous model.
The eye-catching slits in the side spokes not only accentuate the twisted look but also contribute to weight reduction.
