Entering a new generation of sports wheels.
Designed with a racing-based name for the first time in seven years, the new NE24 is a wheel that transforms conventional ideas and evokes a feel of “entering a new phase.”
The name of this new series consists of “N” deriving from the VOLK RACING Gr.N —the roots of the developed wheel, or Group N, the racing class for stock cars with a minimum level of modifications—and “E,” the common initial for the existing series such as TE, CE, and ZE, meaning “evolution.”
2021 will probably be a year of impact in a sense. A great number of new exciting cars are scheduled to be released by Japanese manufacturers. Also, there appears to be a flood of upcoming European C-segment sports models. These cars are elite vehicles that have been developed to compete on the global stage, and therefore wheels to be fitted to such vehicles need to match their novelty.
We never tried to be eccentric but still sought for something new to configure the 2×4 spoke of the NE24. Indeed, in an attempt to create an unconventional geometry, we not only secured sufficient mass at the center area, but also reduced the number of spokes while keeping a necessary volume at the center fastening area and rim joint area. Especially for the outer circumference, we adopted a high-performance design assuming that the wheel is used in combination with a tire with hard specifications.
Making this design feasible essentially required steadily repeated trial and error by RAYS R&D Analytical Team. The skills to give shape to something new were necessary. In addition, using the latest forging technology also helped to achieve the delicate and slight spike. The undercut of the spoke was employed with a further increased level difference. This design is intended to ensure a stereoscopic look even when the narrow size is used.
A new thing is created by embodying something difficult to realize. We will tackle the creation of new styling and performance of street wheels, leveraging our skills and experience that have been acquired through design and development of racing wheels. We will produce both racing wheels and street wheels from the same team members and from the same factory. This is the world of VOLK RACING.

2x4 spoke design
One design concept for racing wheels is ‘to be lighter and stronger.’ Efficient improvement requires weight reduction, and then styling and geometry to meet it are created. The overall design of the NE24’s 2×4 spoke accepts even the unsophisticated appearance of the hole area. The origin of this design lies in the massive center area whose geometry has been refined through repeated shape modifications and strength analysis.
Design of spoke end & periphery of the rim
The spoke end’s irregular triangle element fastened to the rim outer circumference did not come from a single-minded pursuit of reducing weight. This styling has a ‘reasonable reason,’ as it was developed with expectations for the effects on strength as well as rigidity. Furthermore, the rim flange shape is based on the fairing geometry specifically designed to compensate for the large opening, although a minimum size shape is commonly used.
Under cut & A.M.T. machining
The undercut between the spoke end and the rim outer circumference is configured by hollowing the surface at the first step and inclining at a sharp angle at the second step. This design is intended to obtain a contrasting and stereoscopic visual effect even when the narrow size is used with a high inset value . RAYS proprietary A.M.T. machining is added to the design. The engraved letters, which may look trifle at first glance, is a result of our engineering technologies.
