What We Do
Application Of Forging In Bicycles And Motorcycles
Forging is a metal processing technology used to produce complex-shaped parts with high rigidity and strength. The process uses compression to shape metal or transform the original material into a final or very close to the final shape. Forging technology achieves high rigidity while reducing overall weight. This makes it an ideal choice for the production of sturdy and lightweight parts for electric bicycles and motorcycles.
Since CXIN Forging was founded, forging has been applied to the production of electric bicycles and motorcycle accessories. With the development of forging technology, CXIN Forging can provide a large number of lightweight, high-strength precision parts for a large number of electric bicycle and motorcycle manufacturers.
Bicycles and Electric Bicycles
Most after-sales products for bicycles and electric bicycles are made of aluminum or steel alloys. Aluminum is highly valued for its lightweight strength and natural non-corrosive properties, while steel, although heavier, is appreciated for its durability and strength. Because of these factors, aluminum and steel are usually the materials of choice for the production of aftermarket motorcycle parts (from handlebars to fuel tanks, wheels to forks).
During the forging process, the metal is heated and then ‘hammered’ in the forging die to form the desired shape or size, resulting in a high-performance, strong final product. Due to the continuous heating, fracture, and formation of the new microscopic crystal structure in the metal material, the forged part gains additional strength during the compression process.
Precision forgings, state-of-the-art CNC finishing, and advanced heat treatment technology make CXIN Forging’s forgings become some of the best available products for bicycles or electric bicycles. Our flywheels, cranks, connecting plates, connecting rods, and all matching accessories have adopted the same dedication and engineering design.

How Are Motorcycle Parts Made
Most aftermarket parts and accessories in the motorcycle industry are made of aluminum or steel alloys. Although steel is heavy, it is appreciated for its durability and strength. Aluminum forgings have the characteristics of low density, moderate strength, corrosion resistance, easy forming, easy welding, beautiful appearance, durability, and easy recycling.
Because of these factors, aluminum and steel are usually the materials of choice for the production of motorcycle parts such as shift forks, balancer shaft, wheels, and shift forks.
During the forging process, the metal is heated and then punched or hammered inside the forging die to form the desired shape and size. The result is a high-performance, strong final product. The forged steel or aluminum parts are continuously heated to gain additional strength during compression. That’ why forged motorcycle and bicycle parts have better mechanical properties.
CXIN Forging is a professional forging company in China. We can produce various customized forged steel or aluminum parts for the bicycle and motorcycle industry. If you have any needs, please feel free to contact us!
