Thumbs up Much nicer than BST carbon wheels

Time to share this.

Dymag carbon 5 spoke wheels. Did a bunch of research a while back and the spokes are better reinforced as well.

Here is a little incentive too. They are on sale right now.

I need someone to loan me some money.

Finding out if Harris can beat that price, since these are made in the UK (I assume!) and Harris is a distributor. If they can, I can help people who want these as I can get trade pricing from Harris. We'll see what they say.

Spoken to Harris and unfortunately they can't offer any better discount than Dymag is already offering on their site, but it seems like a bloomin good deal... Better than in the link above.

http://www.dymag.com/ cbrbear, you're absolutely right.

If you're serious about buying CF wheels, you need to be extremely careful on the street as they much prefer smooth tracks over roads with potholes.

I've done a ton of reading and haven't found people having issues with newer carbon wheels (BST and Dymag) on streets or with street riding. There are a lot of people who debate it. But really nothing on actual street riding failures. There has been the odd post about failures from accidents (hitting a car or wall, for example), from tire machine misuse, and from drag bikes (think turbo busas with over 300 or 400 hp doing 1/4 mile competitions).

As noted by the manufacturer

All Dymag motorcycle wheels are tested to JWL, DOT, and BS AU50 standards and are certified for race and road use in the United States, United Kingdom, and Japan. Dymag Carbon Fiber Race (CA5) rear wheels carry a 400 Horsepower limit

We've seen a few cracked CF wheels from hitting a pothole too hard, but same could be said for the stock wheel.

Overall you're correct and customers should not have any problems, still doesn't hurt to be extra careful with beautiful wheels

Nice to see Dymag make a carbon wheel that doesn't look like shit. I don't know that I would call these "much nicer than BST's" though.


I'd trust a well designed carbon wheel to take more abuse than a stock cast aluminum wheel any day of the week. The comment about smooth roads is true in respect to replacement costs though. Same goes for any expensive wheel.

A friend taco'd both front and rear oem wheels at the track, that would have been an expensive mistake had he been on a $4k set of wheels. (he went off and was unlucky enough to hit what was effectively a pot hole while getting back on after going off track.)




I'm always right.
