TO TAKE THE CHECKERED FLAG, CHOOSE THE WHEELS WITHOUT COMPETITION

Motorsport has always been at the heart of Carbon Revolution wheels. Making a vehicle faster through lightweight technology has been the driving force for the company since day one. By offering teams and drivers the only one-piece carbon fiber wheel for motorsports, we are giving them a real advantage over the competition.

PERFORMANCE

GO FASTER BY GOING LIGHTER

The Carbon Revolution engineering team has many years of experience with composite technology, with decades of experience in Aerospace and Automotive Design. Our Engineers employ cutting-edge computer modeling tools to optimize the composite structures to very precise specifications, ensuring the wheels improve vehicle performance.

1. Start line: Launch hard with reduced inertia: get more power to the ground.

2. Tight high-g corner, higher cornering speeds due to increased grip. +0.14s

3. Bumps on track. Carbon wheels glide right over the bumps. Bumps upset the car with the aluminum wheel forcing the driver to breath on the throttle costing time and creating more work for the driver. +0.08s

4. Very tough section, off-camber, mid-corner bump and a wide line will hit curbing. Improved grip over curbing, improved steering precision and better chassis control allows the driver to keep the throttle wide open. +0.42s

5. Large bump and g-out in middle of the track typically upsets the chassis with aluminum wheels. Improved suspension performance due to lightweight CR-9 wheels allows the suspension to soak up the bumps without upsetting the chassis. +0.14s

6. Late braking, early on the throttle and increased grip mid corner. +0.45s

7. Finish line: total split = 1.23sec, almost 13 vehicle lengths on the straight!

  • All around the track the transitions in and out of the corners are smoother.
  • Far less adjustments by the driver to steering and throttle allows the car to taker a better line and not have to lift.
  • If you can get back to throttle quicker on corner exit lap times will come down.

Driver Feedback & Lap Times

  • Improved suspension performance increases grip, enhancing control and stability in the corner

  • Improved steering feel made the car easier to drive at the limit

* Average speed on the straight was 104mph resulting in a gap of 13 vehicle lengths for the 1.243sec split in lap times
