How well do you know "The Wiseco Story"? You might have seen it printed in one of our catalogs or on our website. Wiseco started out in Clyde Wiseman's garage in 1941 because he had a passion for racing boats. He started making his own pistons. His friends and family used the pistons and soon word started getting around about them. Clyde went from his garage to a shop. When he out grew his shop, he moved to Wiseco's current location in Mentor, Ohio.

Though Clyde is no longer with us, the team at Wiseco still feels the same passion. Most of us are former racers and enthusiasts. On any given day you’ll see a lineup of bikes or our favorite warm weather cars in the parking lot. We love the industry and want to see it continue to grow. That’s why we put so much passion into bringing you the best products on the market.

The Wiseco of today boasts over 150,000 square feet of state-of-the-art forging and CNC machining equipment. We are the only U.S. piston manufacturer with our own in-house forging facility. With fully stocked warehouses in Ontario, Canada and the Netherlands, we can service customers world-wide. Supplemented by our coast-to-coast domestic distribution system and international customers in Europe, South America, Africa, Australia, and Asia, you can get Wiseco products almost anywhere in the world!

Wiseco is dedicated to staying abreast of technology in the motorsports world. Our engineers use the latest 3D design and finite element analysis software to ensure every Wiseco design is developed to provide the greatest strength and lightest weight for each application. We’ve recently updated our in-house Dyno facility to continue to bringing you the top products on the market.

Wiseco started out nearly 70 years ago with only pistons. Fast forward to present time and you’ll find Wiseco offers electronics, clutch, valve train, and bottom end components to supplement our wide range of high performance, forged pistons for the Powersports, marine, and automotive markets. Check out our website for more information on each of our product lines. You can also see our products at the events we attend. If you aren’t doing anything this weekend, June 25-27, stop by our booth at the Snowshoe GNCC race in Snowshoe, West Virginia!

Wiseco John Penton GNCC Race This Weekend!

The Wiseco John Penton is this weekend in Millfield, Ohio at Sunday Creek Motocross. Why not grab the family and head out to see some great racing? You might be thinking, but it's always either raining or so dry the dust kicks up something fierce! Well, I've looked at the weather forecast and it doesn't look so bad, so maybe this year will be the year for great weather. With Wiseco's home in Ohio, we know how our weather can be. Regardless, the racers need us there to cheer them on!

Wiseco will have a display set up in vendor's row. You'll be able to see all our products for dirt bikes and ATV's. We've even included some samples of our V-Twin product for those of you who prefer cruising on your Harley®.

Come on out to Millfield for the Round 8 of the GNCC series- the Wiseco John Penton. Don't miss any of the action and stop by to say 'Hi' to us at the Wiseco booth on Saturday and Sunday.
