DAYTON, Ohio - Brock's Performance, the exclusive North American distributor of BST carbon-fiber wheels, has lowered prices on the majority its products by as much as $840.

BST's increased efficiency has lowered costs on everything from aerospace-grade materials to production techniques to Brock's warehouse-management system. Resulting wheel prices have been slashed by up to 20 percent across the entire product line. Now, BST wheels can be purchased for as little as $3,300 per set.

Weighing up to 60 percent less than stock wheels, BST wheels enable faster acceleration, decreased braking distances, better suspension performance and lighter handling by reducing unsprung mass and gyroscopic effects in cornering. These enhanced dynamics provide amazing street performance and quicker lap times at the track, up to 311 mph in land-speed racing and down the quarter-mile on 6.90-second, nitrous-breathing drag-race bikes.

Available for 175 sportbikes, sport-tourers and cruisers from a dozen American, European and Japanese brands, all BST wheels are constructed in a one-piece, monocoque design and use carbon fiber strands woven in a unidirectional format, embedded in a resin matrix, cured in a high-pressure autoclave at 250 degrees and coated with a high-gloss finish. This combination of materials and production techniques enables BST to offer a limited, two-year warranty.

BST wheels sold to customers through come upgraded with Worldwide Bearing steel bearings, low-tension seals and Mobil Polyrex EM lube. For even less rolling resistance, the wheels can be fitted with optional ceramic bearings built to Brock's Performance specs. As an official BST service and repair center, Brock's expedites handling of warranty issues, returns and exchanges.
