Today’s a great day in Southern California. Not only has the weather brought us some really sweet riding conditions, but we’re pleased to share that Performance Machine has just received TUV approval in Europe on eight of our wheel designs, something no other manufacturer in our space can even come close to touching.
If you’re unfamiliar with it, TUV stands for Technischer Überwachungs-Verein, which translates to the Technical Monitoring Association. And although our La Palma, California, facility has received TUV certification for years, each wheel listed below has now been tested by a European facility and is approved for street use throughout Europe!
The wheel designs and sizes covered by TUV — ranging from stock replacement up to 23×3.5 and 18×8.5 — undergo rigorous tests for cornering, impact, torsion and radial load before receiving certification. In addition to several existing TUV approvals, we have just been granted approval on the Gasser, Riviera, Element, Heathen, Torque, Luxe, Diesel and Turbo wheel designs and their discs and belt sprockets.
What this endorsement means to us is recognition that our dedication to the industry — both domestic and abroad — and our unrelenting quality standards, aren’t going unnoticed (they are in fact the benchmark by which we operate). Add to that our passion to provide the market with the best-engineered product available and you’ve pretty much described the essence of our mission statement.
In addition to the TUV certified line of wheels, we also hold TUV approvals for our brake systems and the Contour line of hand controls.
