Innovation

Braided carbon wheels for motorcycles

thyssenkrupp Carbon Components is the only carbon wheel manufacturer that uses the complex braiding technology. The rims are produced on the world’s largest carbon fibre braiding machine with a diameter of nine meters. The braiding technology offers substantial benefits compared to conventional carbon production. The seamless braid makes better use of the valuable carbon fiber which increases the material strength and the damage tolerance of the wheels. Thus it is possible to produce the lightest wheels for motorcycles to date.
