Carbon Fiber GP Tek REAR Wheel by BST
- Sold Individually
- Brand BST Wheels
The BST GP TEK wheels were designed with MotoGP and MotoE in mind. BST’s mission was simple, design the lightest-weight motorcycle wheel possible. Light-weighting involves the use of advanced materials and engineering methods to enable structural elements to deliver the same, or enhanced, technical performance while using less material. It also represents an effective way to reduce energy consumption while enhancing performance.
BST wheels are designed with very specific criteria in mind to ensure maximum performance. These include the weight, bending stiffness, rotational inertia, and the distinctive BST design. BST engineering ensures that these wheels meet and exceed the internationally recognized safety standards and regulations.
The GP TEK front wheel weighs only 3.75 lb. (1.7 kg) and the rear wheel is 5.29 lb. (2.4 kg) (depending on fitment), constructed with specialized carbon fiber specifically selected for enhanced cornering stiffness. The hubs are made using 6000 grade aircraft aluminum; the fasteners are grade 5 titanium; RFID tag traceability throughout its lifespan; and a specialized coating between the tire and rim that improves tire changing routines.
With less weight in the wheels, the motocycle can run more efficiently, and deliver power more directly. Handling and braking can be noticeably improved by reducing the rotational weight. Go faster, Stop better, with BST Wheels.
Fun Fact: Carbon Fiber is up to 4X stronger than aluminum, while weighing significantly less!
BST Carbon wheels are the ULTIMATE upgrade to your track bike!
