From the makers of the New BMW HP4 Carbon wheels we now bring them to your S1000RR
The braided carbon-wheels are among the key features of the BMW HP4 RACE, the most exclusive BMW Motorrad bike ever built.
Made in Germany: Braided carbon wheels
thyssenkrupp Carbon Components is the only wheel manufacturer that uses the complex braiding technology. The rims are produced on the world’s largest carbon fiber braiding machine with a diameter of nine meters. The braiding technology offers substantial benefits compared to conventional carbon production. The seamless braid makes better use of the valuable carbon fiber which increases the material strength and the damage tolerance of the wheels. Thus it is possible to produce the lightest wheels to date.
One of the key features of the outstanding BMW HP4 Race are these ultra-lightweight carbon wheels. The reduced rotating masses lead to increased acceleration / deceleration and improved handling. Feel the immediate increase in driving pleasure and performance.
Ultra lightweight carbon wheels
thyssenkrupp has developed braided carbon wheels for high performance motorcycles. This technology was first used by OEM BMW for the HP4 Race motorcycle.
With weight reduction of 30% compared to state of the art light alloy forged wheels.
Less rotating mass
Besides reducing the total mass, the braided carbon wheels lead to a reduction of rotating and unsprung masses of the chassis.
40% less gyroscopic force compared to light alloy forged wheels dramatically improves acceleration/deceleration and handling.
Seamless braided carbon fiber without discontinuities or notches for maximum weight reduction and extremely high damage tolerance. Continuous carbon fibers for maximum fatigue strength.
Hub connection with anodized, CNC-machined 6082 aluminium inserts for material-adapted load application without contact-corrosion
Foam filled spokes for outstanding stiffness and vibration damping. Undercut spoke connection for extremely high damage tolerance.
