KMC WHEELS LAUNCHES ROBBY GORDON’S CUSTOM DESIGNED WHEEL, THE XD131 RG1
Buena Park, Calif. (July 26, 2016) – KMC Wheels today announces the launch of the XD131 RG1, the result of its collaboration with racecar driver Robby Gordon. To view a video of the new wheel design, visit: http://bit.ly/2apAlzv.
Robby Gordon is no ordinary name in the racing realm. He has been a successful racer in almost every discipline, but his roots remain true to off-road. Gordon designed the look of the XD131 RG1, while KMC Wheels incorporated a XD Pro Cap that can be customized with different color rings that allows its customers to give a personal touch.
“I am stoked about the partnership with KMC Wheels,” commented Robby Gordon. “This new design rocks, and I am so excited to see this wheel offered at shops across the country.”
Gordon is also a KMC Wheels brand ambassador and races on the same wheel he helped design in Desert Racing, Stadium Super Trucks and on his Dakar vehicle. Gordon will be contributing his expertise and experience to additional models that will be released over the next few years. RG2 is already in development along with a line of UTV Wheels.
Robby Gordon’s partnership with KMC Wheels was announced last year at SEMA. See what Gordon had to say about working with KMC Wheels here: http://www.kmcwheels.com/news/3725/kmc- welcomes-robby-gordon-to-the-team-.
