Carbon wheels by ThyssenKrupp Carbon Components develops braided carbon wheels for high-performance motorcycles. BMW chose these wheels for the new BMW HP4 Race and now they are available for all S1000RR models.
Braided Carbon Wheels Braided carbon wheels are among the most outstanding features of the BMW HP4 Race, the most exclusive motorcycle from BMW Motorrad.
Significantly Lighter Braided carbon wheels are 30 percent lighter than state-of-the-art aluminum wheels.
Lower Rotational Inertia In addition to the total weight, the braided carbon wheels also significantly reduce the rotating and unsprung masses of the chassis.
Faster Acceleration A 40% lower rotational inertia compared to alloy forged wheels significantly improves acceleration, braking and handling.
Milled Hub Hub connection with anodized, CNC milled 6082 aluminum inserts for material adapted load transfer without contact corrosion.
Foam-Filled Spokes Foam-filled chips ensure maximum strength and noticeably damp vibrations. Undercut into the rim bed integrated spoke connection increases the damage tolerance.
Style 1 Style 2 (HP4 Race Design) There is no difference between construction of Style 1 and Style 2. Only difference is the spoke design. Style 1 is rounded smooth and Style 2 has a "twisted" look to the spokes.
