Piega Aluminium Aftermarket wheel for Road, Track day and Race use. Up to 25% lighter than OE wheel.
So why are light wheels so important? With todays modern Superbikes being so powerful, improved handling is now worth considerably more to a lap time than additional power. A Superbike now spends as little as 2% of its lap time on full throttle and that is the only time that power really affects lap times. Lightweight wheels are a massive advantage because any loss in unsprung and rotating weight is worth several times its actual physical weight because it has a massive affect on handling.
By fitting lighter wheels you will;
Reduce Rotational Inertia
Reduce Tyre Wear
Improve Grip and Traction
Turn in with less effort
Flick through chicanes with less effort
Reduce Rider Fatigue
All this adds up to reduce lap times up to several seconds per lap! Of course, anyone can make a wheel lighter simply by using less material. The difficult bit is to make it both lighter and strong enough to do its job at anything up to 200MPH. The experience and expertise of OZ wheels is your guarantee of both tremendous Strength and light weight to produce the perfect Superbike wheel!
