The best wheels on the market today by a long shot. The single most noticeable upgrade you can do to your motorcycle.
BST Wheels have the lowest un-sprung weight and moment of inertia compared to current aftermarket wheels, and are lighter and stronger than traditional aluminum or magnesium wheels. Best of all they have the same unique look that only carbon fiber can offer. All BST wheels are DOT, JWL and TUV compliant and have individual serial numbers.
Blackstone Tek BST wheels are 40-60% lighter than stock wheels and will reduce a bike's Moment of Inertia (ie. less energy is required to start or stop the bike) and reduce the gyroscopic effect of the wheels. Carbon fiber wheels are also stronger than traditional wheels. This means that:
- Faster acceleration
- Faster braking
- Easier cornering and maneuverability
- Ultra-high tolerance to damage
- Low corrosion susceptibility
These are the 5 spoke design and will include steel bearings. Optional ceramic bearings are available.
