BST (Goldspeed) Carbon wheel / Husaberg front brake billet rotor adapter.

Some designs originate from a place of pure imagination, some innovation, some boredom and some of necessity, as was the case with this design.

BST (Blackstone Tec) has the lightest strongest motorcycle wheels available on the market today (not my claim – go and have a look at the tests – fricken awesome stuffs) – full carbon fiber and around 7kg lighter for the set, than the standard Behr race wheels that the Berg came with.

To find the right parts to fit them to a Husaberg is a headache, so I grabbed my vernier, the wheel and the brake and got the measurements sorted, bit more engineering than my standard designing, there’s a perfect balance between shedding unwanted material and thus weight from the 15mm piece of 7005 alu, but to still keep all the structural strength where and when it is needed for the forces that a supermotard will exert on a front rotor.
