We are now offering Titax forged aluminum wheels. In terms of weight, these wheels are truly unmatched by aluminum counterparts. The YZF-R1 sets are a whopping 6.5lbs lighter than the OEM wheels. This type of weight loss is normally only seen in magnesium wheels. This is achieved by a higher forging standard.

These also offer the very unique and much appreciated ability to retain not only your OEM brake discs, but the OEM sprocket pattern is retained as well. The wheels are available in a wide variety of colors. Best of all, we are running a promo to help introduce these to the US market. They are only $1730+shipping right now through SBU!

Like all Titax products these wheels are used and tested in the heat of battle in the most competitive race series on the planet. IAMT have chosen TITAX as their official wheels for MOTO GP and MOTO 2 projects!

The TITAX wheels mulit-step manufacturing process starts from a single solid piece of high grade aerospace aluminum. High pressure forging (30 thousand tons) is then used to further improve the grain structure.
This high pressure forging is the only way to create the strongest and stiffest finished product. The forged blanks are then machined on Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) milling machines to ensure that bearing surfaces, etc are perfectly true. For the rear wheel we start with a 25 kg piece of the forged aluminum, for the front 15 kg. When the whole process is finished the weight of the rear wheel (17" / 5.5") is 4.6 kg (10.14lbs) (fully equipped incl. adapters, bearings, etc.) and the front wheel is only 2.75 kg (6.06lbs) ,fully equipped. !! In total it gives more than 2.7 kg (6lb) weight saving compare to O.E.M. wheels. Maximum load on the front wheel is 140 kg (308.6 lbs), on the rear wheel 235 kg (518lbs)

Below are some sample weights, in addition to those listed above:

04-14 YZF-R1: OEM Wheel weight is 24.3.lbs

Titax forged wheel weight: 17.8 lbs including a sprocket.
