Wheel test article from dave moss -feelthetrack

HERE IS A SUMMARY
SUMMARY

I have to say that the adaption process to the Carrozzeria wheels was not an easy one because it took a lot of careful thought and measured objective testing to really see how the chassis could benefit from this 5lb weight loss. So, five 20 minutes sessions (there are normally 7 in a 3 group day) gave me a chassis that I could really feel comfortable about pushing hard to get the lap times down.

The outer third of the wheel having less weight made a huge change in all aspects of riding:

- braking markers moved up significantly

- braking force reduced for much better lever feel and overall performance

- initial turn in required much less physical input

- line correction much easier to make

- significantly less effort to transition the bike

- much quicker acceleration off corners



I still believe that there would be another half day or perhaps more to focus on turn in points and acceleration to be assured that I was making the best use of the wheels with a completely optimized chassis. But – that’s me, striving for perfection and confidence based on a sound understanding of what I have and that I can trust it and let go to focus on skill execution.





Should you consider getting a set and is it a worthwhile investment? A resounding yes for many reasons:

- weight savings means better fuel economy on the street and these are street legal wheels

- anodizing saves more weight over powder coating

- you can keep your stock rear rotor or use their proprietary superibke rotor

- you can get the race kit spacer set for the front wheel (much better than stock spacers)

- all wheels are hand built with great attention to detail

- yes, you get your choice of colors and I think the gold color looks great on the R1 (matches the Nitron shock and Leo Vince Corsa exhaust!).
