Next Generation Hybrid Surface Treatment
The design concept of the AZURE 57ANA is to express next generation three dimensionality, even in narrow sizes.
From up front, it appears to be a rim over type 2×5 spoke, however, the moment the angle shifts, you will immediately see an entirely different expression. This is due to the new incorporation (an industry’s first) of a high dimensional fusion of machining and diamond cutting—a process treatment that continues a design on two-dimensional and three-dimensional surfaces. As a result, the center part changes its appearance depending on the angle from which it is viewed. Not only that, such aspects are further highlighted by a design that focuses on the vertical section of the spoke by purposefully limiting its concaveness, thereby drawing out its three-dimensionality. The center cap has also been newly manufactured to match each color.

This surface treatment, named hybrid machining, is a new endeavor that is the next step from machining and diamond cutting. The junctions of machining and diamond cutting were repeatedly adjusted to decide on an optimal form. It gave birth to an unprecedented three-dimensionality that alters the way the surface catches the light depending on the angle you view it from.
The spokes have been given a depth that ensures volume, while the lower parts of the spokes have been undercut. This guarantees spacious elegance and also contributes to making the product lightweight.
