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
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
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
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
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.

Bayside Performance specializes in custom order hard to get or made to
order items. Our website shows inventory two ways.
We are experiencing random Covid-19 lockdown related delays that are out of our control. We ask that you be patient during this time.
In stock items would be shipped same or next business day however
inventory numbers are not a guarantee. If in stock items are not
available to ship right away we would contact you with an estimate.
Available To Order:
Available to order items where not discontinued the last time manually
checked.They may have estimated time in which they should leave our
store but this is not a guarantee. Available to order items must arrive
to us first and be checked prior to shipping to you. We do stock the
most commonly sold items and have a decent inventory however many items
have to be sourced at the time of sale from many different distributors.
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
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.
