Weighing between 40 and 60 percent less than OEM wheels, BST wheels bestow sportbikes with sharper corner-carving abilities, faster acceleration, and quicker braking by weighing less than their production-bike counterparts. Lighter wheels are also easier for suspension systems to control over bumps and irregular surfaces, yielding more traction and unimpeded acceleration. Less rotating mass also equals less rider fatigue.
A lighter rear wheel is easier for the shock to control properly, which leads to superior power application and much higher trap speeds in competition and track days.
Using high-tech processes pioneered in the aerospace industry, BST wheels are manufactured in a single molding operation. This technique produces a wheel that is far superior in strength and much lighter than any aluminum or magnesium wheel, and one that is light and strong enough for racing and street use.
BST wheels are a unique monococque (single unit) design with hollow spokes. The end result is wheels with unsprung weight reduced 40-60 percent compared to stock wheels. This delivers the lowest possible moment of inertia, a critical factor that affects all aspects of motorcycle performance.
Maximizing the molecular and structural properties of carbon fiber, BST has reduced spoke and rim weight without compromising their strength. Mass is therefore concentrated in the hub, reducing rotational inertia. This results in quicker acceleration and braking, allowing faster corner entry and exit speeds.
BST designs the tooling, molds, wheel and hubs, then manufactures them in its state-of-the-art factory. Precision cutting machines, like those used in the aeronautical industry, ensure that the process is repeatable and meets the highest certification standards. BST uses only the finest “prepreg” carbon fiber, which is embedded in a top-secret resin matrix epoxy. Carbon-fiber layup is done in a dust-free and temperature-controlled “clean room.” The wheels are cured in a superheated steam oven, or autoclave, at 260 degrees and 85 psi. This produces the best material compaction and smoothest surface finish. Every step of this process is logged, the entire history of each wheel is stored and stamped with a unique serial number. To ensure the highest quality manufacturing processes and components, BST’s entire operation is managed under strict, new ISO 9002 standards.
The hubs are attached to the wheels using a unique fastening system that combines high-tech aerospace fasteners, mechanical locking mechanisms and super-high-strength aerospace adhesive. In the event of rim damage the hub can typically be salvaged and the carbon rim replaced at a substantial savings over purchasing a new wheel.
90-Degree Valve Stems
All BST wheels come with aluminum 90-degree valve stems that are not only easy to access, but keep centrifugal force from opening their Schrader valves and deflating tires during high-speed operation. Track tested up to 274 mph.
BST products have undergone decades of research, development, testing and the most stringent certifications processes. They’ve been flogged at Rim Technology, Eurotype Test Centre and have passed all lab and street tests for certification from Germany’s TüV to the U.S. Department of Transportation, with flying colors.
BST wheels have been proven internationally at every level of FIM Grand Prix roadrace competition and in winning 12 championship titles around the world.
Established in 1992, BST is based near Johannesburg, South Africa. BST engineers and manufactures the world's finest carbon fiber motorcycle components from wheels and frames to fuel tanks and fenders, to the highest international standards. The standard equipment wheels on Confederate and Norton motorcycles, BST was also chosen to provide wheels and produce the carbon-fiber frame on the radical MotoCyz project. On the world stage, BST wheels have been proven at every level of FIM Grand Prix roadracing competition and have won 12 national championships. BST has sold more than 8,000 carbon fiber wheels around the world.

We would contact you with a delivery estimate before processing your order if the posted estimate was incorrect or was not posted.
Parts Fitment Guarantee:
Aftermarket parts do not always fit like OEM parts. Some aftermarket parts require modifications or fitment to work correctly. For example carbon fiber and race bodywork components often need trimming and modifications to fit correctly.
Bayside Performance only guarantees fitment of these parts if they are installed by a licensed tech with experience installing aftermarket parts. Bayside Performance reserves the right to investigate each fitment issue and decide whether the part is incorrect or incorrect installation is the problem. The customer is responsible to install parts correctly or hire a company with the skills to complete the work properly. Please call us for more details.
