BST carbon fiber wheels go Tucker Rocky

Brock’s Performance, the exclusive U.S. distributor of BlackStone Tek (BST) carbon fiber wheels for Japanese sportbikes, is proud to announce that BST wheels are now available through thousands of Tucker Rocky dealers nationwide.

With some of BST’s competitors succumbing to the tough economic climate, Brock’s has stepped up distribution of this class-leading brand.

Brock’s Performance president Brock Davidson says, "This strategic alliance will enable us to provide BST products in a timely manner with the highest level of dealer and customer support. Because Brock’s is also an official BST service and repair center, we will also expedite the handling of warranty issues, returns and exchanges, so selling and owning BST wheels will be a seamless affair."

BST wheels endow sportbikes with lighter handling, enable faster acceleration and promote quicker braking by weighing up to 60 percent less than their OEM counterparts, reducing unsprung mass and gyroscopic effects in cornering. This equates to stronger street performance and quicker lap times at the track.

All BSTs are constructed in a one-piece, monocoque design and utilize carbon fiber strands woven in a unidirectional format, embedded in a resin matrix, cured in a high-pressure autoclave at 250 degrees and coated with a high-gloss finish. The completed wheels carry a limited, two-year warranty.

BST wheels sold through Tucker Rocky dealers come upgraded from Brock’s Performance with Worldwide ceramic bearings, low-tension seals and aerospace lube.

Proven internationally at every level of FIM Grand Prix competition, BST wheels are DOT-legal for street use and have been approved to compete in America’s top roadracing and dragracing organizations.
