BST Carbon-Fiber Motorcycle WheelsBrock’s Performance, the exclusive North American distributor of BST carbon-fiber wheels since 2009, is happy to announce that it has lowered prices on most of these tough, stunning, lightweight rims, which can now be purchased for up to $840 less than ever before.
Due to BST’s increased efficiency that has lowered costs on everything from aerospace-grade materials to cutting-edge production techniques to Brock’s state-of-the-art ASCTrac warehouse-management system and quick shipping from its Dayton, Ohio headquarters, wheel prices have been slashed by up to 20 percent across the entire product line. Now, these exclusive wheels can be purchased for as little as $3300 per set.“We’re always looking to bring our knowledge and 30 years of experience to motorcyclists at the lowest prices using the latest technology,” said company President, Brock Davidson.Weighing up to 60 percent less than stock wheels, BSTs enable faster acceleration, decreased braking distances, better suspension performance and lighter handling by reducing unsprung mass and gyroscopic effects in cornering. These enhanced dynamics provide amazing street performance and quicker lap times at the track.Proven around the globe in world-championship competition, they’ve flawlessly rolled to a mind-bending, stupid fast 311 mph in land-speed racing on a 600-pound, 1000-horsepower, turbocharged monster and while lunging off the line and sprinting down the quarter mile in 6.90 seconds on violent, nitrous-breathing, 550 hp drag-racer bikes.Available for 175 sportbikes, sport-tourers and cruisers from a dozen American, European and Japanese brands, all BST wheels 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. This combination of materials and production techniques enables BST to offer a limited, two-year warranty.BST wheels sold to customers through BrocksPerformance.com come upgraded with Worldwide Bearing steel bearings, low-tension seals and Mobil Polyrex EM lube. For even less rolling resistance, the wheels can be fitted with optional ceramic bearings built to Brock’s Performance specs. The company provides industry-leading customer service, aftercare and dealer support by a team of experts. An official BST service and repair center, Brock’s expedites handling of warranty issues, returns and exchanges.For more information about BST wheels and 3000 other go-fast goodies from Brock’s Performance, please visit BrocksPerformance.com, call 937-912-0054 or keep up with the latest developments on its active Facebook page, YouTube channel and Twitter postings.
