MPI DIFFERENCE: CONSTRUCTION METHOD

Most other manufacturers look at maintaining commonality between all products in order to keep prices down. At MPI they look at how to build the best products and give their customers the best value.


WHY DOES MPI USE A U CHANNEL AND DOUBLE RIVETS?

At MPI they could have cut some corners and welded their channel instead of creating a jig that precisely guides their rivets inserts. But they didn't because they don't think that is the BEST way to build a steering wheel.

Would it have been less expensive? Obviously it takes seconds to weld a steering wheel against the 15 minutes to do the MPI process but we think that is way better!

Max Papis wanted to build the lightest possible product (light = fast in race cars) but still maintaining a top level of safety and deformation under impact. After long months of R&D the MPI 2 rivet winged spoke technology was born.

Just because a competitor's wheel cost more doesn't necessarily mean you're getting a better product. Other Italian manufactured wheels use a single rivet construction. And though this is far superior than the Taiwan alternative that is welded, you'll notice that the rivets on other brands of steering wheels are never in the same place and there's only one rivet per spoke.

In the steering wheel history using the U channel and rivets construction has been the standard in the industry for many years. Some overseas companies like to weld their spokes to the U Channel. Why is it that MPI doesn't weld their spokes? Several generations of experience that sent them the message that any hard spot on a circular surface that needs to deform under impact will never deform.
