Iconic motorcycle brands (Bmw, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki) and ones that produce ultra-exclusive motorcycles such as Norton, Motus, Vuhl, Confederate Motor Company and Arch Motorcycles are sold with Blackstone Tek carbon fiber wheels as the specified original wheels.
And the fact that virtually 100% of Blackstone Tek’s product is exported, with most of them sold by aftermarket specialists in Europe, North America, Japan, Australia, is a credit to the company and once again an indication that a South African company as BST - based in Johannesburg - can compete in a highly competitive market.
BST carbon composite motorbike wheels are made using the latest technology, materials and manufacturing processes.This lightweight and exceedingly stronger wheel is suitable for both racing and street use. The wheels have been through the Rim Technology and Eurotype Test Centre certification tests and passed all the tests for road certification. And most important of all, the wheels are a unique single unit therefore no bonding is used.
Some of the OEM bikes that have BST rims fitted include Aprilia, Benelli, Bimota, BMW, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, MV Agusta, Suzuki, Triumph and Yamaha.
