Everybody has questions about our carbon wheels because we use advanced technologies and the latest materials. Over the years, we have found that there are questions that come up all the time. The below is a selection of them with our answer to each.
Of course, you may go through them all and find your question is not answered. Or maybe, having read them, you now have a new question to ask! Either way, we’re always happy to help so just select the button below the FAQs, ask us the question(s) and we’ll be right back with the answers you need.
In a word, no. Carbon wheels have safe and predictable failure modes meaning that they will not shatter because of the interrelationship between the carbon weave and the resin bond materials. See our tests at the bottom of our videos page – Go to video page
Carbon auto wheels are around 40% lighter than a standard OEM cast aluminium wheel. Carbon moto wheeels are around 30% lighter.
Lightweight wheels are the one modification that immediately feels different to the driver or rider. Faster acceleration, sharper braking, improved ride and superior handling are a given, but feedback from many customers is that the “turn-in” or “flickability” when entering corners is also significantly sharpened, with markedly enhanced feel through the steering wheel or handlebars.
Yes, very strong. This is due to the high tensile strength and stiffness of the carbon fibres. Add to that, the numerous ways in which the carbon fibres can be weaved and positioned means that further strength and stiffness is ‘engineered in’.
There are many benefits of carbon wheels beyond the 30-40% reduction in overall weight. You will gain faster acceleration, sharper braking and better handling alongside better durability in varying environments and also increased safety.
