Thumbs up Carbon Wheels IN STOCK!!!

We have gotten a new shipment of wheels and have all sizes in stock. look for our products on at least 3 biker build-off bikes this year. Call the shop to order or inquire about sizes for your application.

We also are releasing carbon 21" and 18" front as well as an 18" rear fender. plus also look for our new gas tank designs coming in a month or so.

retail is $3,3600 per pair. add $200 for the 18x8.5 rear. 10-15 hp gain at the wheel plus all the benefits of the lighter rotating mass so you accell quicker, stop faster, and turn easier.

these things are 10x stronger than billet wheels. there is nothing a normal street rider can do to break em. we were jumping a 4 ft ramp with one of our carbon bikes with the wheels on it (hardtail mind you) and not one problem. I guarantee you will not break these or i will buy em back. that is under regular road use. no evil knevil snake river jumps.

Those are some great looking wheels but that 10 - 15 hp gain sounds a little optimistic. Any dyno sheets to back that up? What is the weight diff between these and standard laced wheels?

Unsprung (rotating) weight that you save has about a 10X effect on power/weight ratio when compared to sprung weight savings. So, if I save 1 lb of rotating weight on my wheels the effect would be the same as saving 10 lbs of weight from the rest of the bike. Weight saved from the rim of the wheel has even a greater effect that weight saved on the hub.

If we were to assume that a 800lb bike (with rider) made 100 HP, then you have 8 lbs per HP. If you saved 5 lbs per wheel that would have the same effect as reducing your bike weight to 700 lbs, so the effect on your power/weight would be 8/7*100, or 114.28HP.

Note, these are rough jungle calculations with all sorts of assumptions - I have no idea how much the wheels weigh or if the calculations for bikes would be the same as for cars - this is just intended as an illustration.

the front wheel is only 6lbs in any size. the rear is 7lbs for the 3.5, 8lbs for the 5.5 and 9 lbs for the 8.5. A stock spoke wheel is 21 lbs. most billet wheels start at 35 lbs and go up. the hp number is guaranteed. less rotating mass means less drivetrain loss and since the wheel is lighter it will spin faster and easier. The wieght to power calcs are close but leaving the vehicle wieght out of the equasion (its only for accelleration anyway) and sticking to the drivetrain loss, everyone can understand that it takesless power to spin a lighter wieght. the rmaining power is just transfered into momentum energy. thus less hp spent turning the wheel makes more put to the ground.
