From the highest levels of international car and motorcycle racing to club level motorsport, our pistons have won countless championships and accolades over the years. By way of an example, ours was the first Formula 1 piston that could be used at engine speeds in excess of 20,000 rpm. Today, we continue to innovate and lead the way in motorsport piston technology, putting quality, reliability and performance at the heart of our processes. As a result, we are proud to be the piston manufacturers of choice for motorsport competitors around the world seeking to develop a winning advantage.
Motorsport, of all kinds, is about precision and perfection; there is no room for error. Our proven pedigree and state-of-the-art technology allow us to design and manufacture performance pistons for a wide range of applications without sacrificing or compromising on the things that matter. Our pistons are supreme in their quality and unrivalled in their reliability.
We produce world-class forged pistons or billet pistons for high-speed naturally aspirated and highly boosted competition engines, from initial detailed design right through to pristine manufacture, inspection and rigorous testing. Our in-house non-destructive technology (NDT) facilities permit us to undertake comprehensive inspection of pistons after development, as well as full-life testing, to confirm the robustness of the finished product. It is only through attention to the finest of details that allows us to deliver engine pistons to the rigorous standards demanded by international motorsport and that uphold our reputation.
Whatever your racing tastes, whether two-wheeled or four – or even in the air – our pistons continue to set the standard around the world. With over six decades of experience and a talented team of in-house experts, we know what it takes to compete with – and beat – the very best. The durability of our custom pistons has been proven at the most demanding levels of motorsport, even in the most gruelling endurance race of them all: the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
We design, manufacture and validate our pistons to withstand some of the most extreme terrains known, perfectly exemplified by our involvement in international rallying, from the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) right down to internal and national rally championships. In two-wheeled motorsport, teams and riders rely on our motorbike pistons to perform at their best with exhilarating wheel-to-wheel action in MotoGP, as well as MotoX and Speedway. It is not just on the ground where our racing pistons have made a positive impression in recent years; they were also used by leading competitors in the Red Bull Air Race up to the series’ conclusion in 2019.
Everything we do is driven by our passion for perfection and performance. Our approach to motorsport has been honed over decades, and that’s why our pistons are the preferred choice in almost all forms of racing around the world. Motorsport manufacturers, teams and competitors know that, with us, they can rely on utmost quality and reliability from our pistons, to ensure that they retain a competitive advantage at every turn.
