LATEST MODEL HIGH TECH RACE WHEEL
 
 
First Comment

What I have set out to do is not to re-invent the wheel which was invented several hundred years ago but to improve what was already available by having a good hard look at all components that makes up a wheel. Most important if involved in an accident this wheel is totally repairable at a low cost.

 
 
The Hub
The most important part of the wheel.I have stayed with a steel hub because if it gets kicked by a horse it will not shatter like some of the imported alloy hubs that have been coming in over the years. I have had it machined to very fine tolerances for bearing clearances and also had it hollowed out in the centre to reduce weight where strength is not important.This weight reduction has made each wheel only 3.75kgs.
 
 
Ceramic Bearings
  1. Better ball geometry
  2. Superior surface finish
  3. 40%less weight
  4. 60%harder rolling elements
  5. lower thermal expansion
  6. can operate in low lube conditions
  7. Higher operating speeds
  8. longer lasting

All this means a lighter bearing that spins more freely and smoother, thereby consuming less horsepower.

 
 
The Rim
I have chosen to use an alloy rim of double bridge for extra strength yet still very lightweight and no rust problems.
 
 
Spokes
Are a 13 gauge Zinc coated straight head spokes which means no downward pressure is on the head of the spoke.
 
 
Safety Wheel Discs
Made from lightweight polycarbonate and only 1.5mm thick vacuum formed to the shape of the wheel. They have been moulded to cover the entire wheel on both sides to the outer edge of the rim for better aerodynamics. Also this will greatly reduce horses hoof kicking tyres. The imitation wide spokes are purely cosmetic & can be colour coordinated to clients chosen race colours.
