Latest Technology Carbon Fiber Wheel

Met for the 1st time Michael Kamalian from Revolution Cycle Manufacturing during the 2005 V-Twin Expo where he was exhibiting his first custom motorcycle fitted with his own carbon fiber parts, frame, tank, wheels etc.China Carbon Sheet 160g/㎡, T300 3K, Unidirectional Manufacturers Seven years later we talked again at the same last weekend V-twin Expo and Michael gave me an update on his company progression and specifically on the improvement brought to his carbon wheels that he manufactures in his Marietta, Georgia facility.

But first, a reminder of the multiple advantages of carbon fiber wheels. In addition of look (if it’s the one you are after), because of reduced static mass (upward to 26+ lbs on some common wheel sizes) a motorcycle will feel lighter while riding, turn faster and just make handling more controllable and comfortable.China Carbon Sheet 200g/㎡, T300 3K, Plain Weave Manufacturers

Mike redesigned all his wheels using technologies not available just a few years ago. They are no more pieced together, like in the past, but in fact woven in one piece through a 3D tube, providing increased strength over the original carbon designs.China Carbon Sheet 200g/㎡, T300 3K, Twill Manufacturers Some fitment issues for some motorcycles have been resolved by creating a removable hub system similar to the one used in conventional billet wheels. It’s now possible to fit any make, model, and year (of course, if a conventional chain/belt drive is used). These carbon fiber wheels can be adapted to single sided hubs and to some fancy specialty brake systems now offered by the industry .
