BST’s mission was simple: design the lightest-weight motorcycle wheel possible. Light-weighting involves the use of advanced materials and engineering methods to enable structural elements to deliver the same, or enhanced, technical performance while using less material. It also represents an effective way to reduce energy consumption while enhancing performance.
The GP TEK front wheel weighs only 3.75 lb. (1.7 kg) and the rear wheel is 5.29 lb. (2.4 kg) (depending on fitment), constructed with specialized carbon fiber specifically selected for enhanced cornering stiffness. The hubs are made using 6000 grade aircraft aluminum; the fasteners are grade 5 titanium; RFID tag traceability throughout its lifespan; and a specialized coating between the tire and rim that improves tire changing routines. The GP TEK wheels are intended for competition or race use only.
