Rotobox Bullet forged carbon wheels

Rotobox extends its carbon motorcycle wheel product line by unveiling the Rotobox Bullet, a new thin spoke, ultra-light forged carbon wheel.

The company 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. 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.

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.

Three-component-composite
Produced using Rotobox’s unique 3 component composite – combining carbon, epoxy and stainless steel. The stainless 2,5 mm steel wire is integrated in eacg side of the rim increasing its impact resistance at the most critical outer part.

Titanium Hex Head Bolts M10x1.5x25mmMade 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.
