Rotobox has extended its carbon motorcycle wheel product line by unveiling the Rotobox Bullet, the new thin spoke, ultra-light forged carbon wheel at EICMA. Rotobox is one of the leading companies in the development of lightweight high-performance carbon automotive wheels. It is also a company not satisfied with just keeping up with trends but setting them.
The wheels conform to safety standard JASO T203-85 for JWL dotE Certification. Before riding on public streets, be sure to check your local regulations.
UV PROTECTIVE COATING:
The carbon cast is protected from radiation with a very thin layer of special clear UV protective coating. Together with the clear and smooth rim surface it ensures the wheel a zero notch effect.
HIGH QUALITY CENTER PARTS:
For each motorcycle model the hubs are CNC machined from high quality 7075 T6 aluminum alloy used in the aviation industry, anodized into optional color and permanently assembled to the carbon rim.
SOLID THIN SPOKES:
To create solid thin spokes we use special carbon fiber yarn developed for military use.
Produced using Rotobox's unique 3 component composite - combining carbon, epoxy and stainless steel. The stainless 2,5 mm steel wire is integrated in each side of the rim increasing its impact resistance at the most critical outer part.
Titanium Hex Head Bolts M10x1.5x25mm:
Made from Aircraft Spec Grade 5 Titanium Alloy. Special high performance design by Rotobox. Precision machined with rolled threads and completely corrosion free. Excellent durability and minimum weight, 45% lighter than steel equivalents. Available optionally with the wheels.
CHOPPED CARBON FIBERS MEETS WOVEN FABRIC:
Rotobox's unique technology enables combining chopped carbon fibers with woven fabric seamlessly in one-piece monocoque.
PENTAGON SHAPED HUB:
The hub is locked into the carbon part with pentagon shape for ultimate transmission of torque.
New Revolutionary Forged Carbon Wheels by Rotobox / Revealing at EICMA 2019
The Rotobox R&D team was challenged to develop a new technology of solid spokes and a light alloy-like wheel design, which they delivered. The result is a unique, top performance, one-piece carbon wheel with a daring appearance. The Rotobox stand will showcase and highlight the new ultra-light Rotobox Bullet wheel in a number of configurations. The Rotobox Carbon Fiber Wheels are ultra-light motorcycle wheels for racing and road application and an upgrade to any model of motorcycle. The wheels are designed to meet the highest level of performance and due to one-piece carbon cast construction develop a safe and controlled advantage in speed, providing the lowest moment of inertia and the lowest gyroscopic effect. Rotobox Bullet carbon fiber wheels take things to another level: 50% less weight, more riding performance, more design and more technology to accentuate the sportiest side of each motorcycle. Your secret weapon that will get you in front!
The Rotobox carbon Bullet wheels conform to the JASO T203-85 / ISO-8644 safety standard. They also passed all tests according to the TÜV Road Traffic No.287 standard, Section 30StVZO 2018 without preconditioning.
The new Rotobox Bullet wheel has a number of very unique features:
SOLID THIN SPOKES: To create solid thin spokes Rotobox uses special high-grade carbon fiber yarn, specifically developed for military use. Because of the extreme mechanical properties of the fibers used and high-density forging process, they have been able to develop an industry first, small and compact carbon spoke.
FLAT EDGE 3-COMPONENT COMPOSITE RIM: Rotobox advanced composite technology makes variable wall thickness possible enabling a flat edge rim as seen on modern wheels. This modern feature contributes to cleaner design and better aerodynamic properties of the wheel. Furthermore, the wheels are produced using Rotobox unique 3-component composite rim technology - combining carbon, epoxy and stainless steel. The stainless 2.5 mm steel wire is integrated in each side of the carbon rim increasing its impact resistance of the rim edge, whilst keeping the rim edge ductile and meeting the latest industry safety standards.
PENTAGON SHAPED HUB: The wheel hub is bolt-less locked into the carbon center part with pentagon shape for ultimate transmission of torque.
How to make the lightest and strongest wheel in the world? That’s the question motorcycling racer, research & development engineer and Rotobox CEO Gregor Bizjak asked himself more than a decade ago. The answer was a revolutionary 3 component-carbon-epoxy-steel-composite and a newly developed production procedure, which paved the way for a new generation of high-performance motorcycle wheels by Rotobox.
Prior to Rotobox, Gregor Bizjak worked in the luxury industry and was a tool supplier among others for Akrapovic KTM and Alba. Both experiences helped to create a passion for the attention to detail and a better understanding of the tough demands of the high-performance automotive industry.
Since the very first day Rotobox strives to take the performance of carbon fiber wheels to a new level. By continuously pushing the boundaries of creative engineering Rotobox products set industry standards for lightness, stiffness, design and premium quality. Whether on the track or on the road – the racing DNA of the Rotobox team is not only reflected in the wheels but can be felt with every meter driven. It is clear that the Rotobox team loves what they do, and it is this ambition that delivers the best experience wherever the Rotobox wheel takes you.
