Then in 2014, the AGT designer team re-designed the original model to a luxurious and dynamic design that produced the 1st Model. The 1st Model brought itself to its first debut with its intimidating DEEP RIM and CONCAVE DISK. However, the manufacturing process used for this Model was the CAST process which limits the team’s desire to produce a sharper design. So, the team decided to postpone the sales and continue their research to produce a satisfying product.
“HONMONO” (GENUINE) The AGT designer team never stopped their desire to pursue a genuine and legitimate wheel. So after a hard work of research in materials and manufacture, they decided to change the production to a first-class forged and created a full-forged 3pcs structure. – Keeping its former Design, intimidating Deep Rim and Concave Disk to a Full-Forged 3pcs. This has evolved SHALLEN to its 2nd debut. - The 2nd MODEL. However, this was not enough….
No matter how good the design and elegant the material that are used, the finishing was not good enough. You can’t deceive the users delicate eyes when it comes to a higher class level. -The 2nd Model was simply not enough.. Therefore the AGT team continued to pursue in creating “a genuine Quality with a Perfect & Dynamic design” and “More Impact “ . The team focused on to create a stronger concave design and decided to change the production to a new level. – Thus the 3rd Model was born. For the past 2 years the team has been re-designing the models, changing the process line and Crown brand to AME for the sake of the quality… Now, the team is finally proud to present their new model – The AME Forged Line SHALLEN L.O.D.
