Oribi Composites and Packard Performance partner to develop world’s first advanced thermoplastic composite wheel for off-road powersports
Denver, CO – November 10, 2021 —Oribi Composites, a part of Re:Build Manufacturing, and Packard Performance, announce the launch of the world’s first high-performance off-road UTV wheels made with advanced thermoplastic composite materials. The new composite UTV wheels are 50% lighter than aluminum yet are able to handle extreme terrain and driving conditions with no compromise to overall strength and toughness. The new wheels are available to purchase now through Packard Performance (www.packardperformance.com).
For over 13 years, Oribi Composites has been producing high-performance, advanced composite components for a wide variety of markets and applications, including military protective gear, footwear, bike, and outdoor equipment markets. Oribi combines proprietary processes with aerospace grade composite materials to produce high-performance components for consumer applications, affordably and in high volumes. “Packard Performance has been an incredibly collaborative partner for Oribi, and we are excited to see these wheels finally enter the market,” says Oribi’s VP Business Development, Matt Christensen. “Thermoplastic composite materials address the shortcomings of traditional thermoset epoxy materials; they are inherently tougher, can be processed into parts faster, and are recyclable. Packard Performance now has the unique ability to offer a lightweight wheel, while still addressing durability and toughness for this demanding application.”
