DAYTON, OHIO – July 9, 2009 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Brock’s Performance is proud to announce that it has won the exclusive U.S. rights to distribute BlackStone Tek (BST) carbon fiber wheels for Japanese sportbikes and all drag-race applications.
BST wheels endow sportbikes with lighter handling, enable faster acceleration and promote quicker braking by weighing up to 60 percent less than their OEM counterparts, reducing unsprung mass and gyroscopic effects in cornering. This equates to stronger street performance and quicker lap times at the track.
All BST wheels feature a one-piece, monocoque construction. They utilize carbon fiber strands woven in a unidirectional format, embedded in a resin matrix, cured in a high-pressure autoclave at 250 degrees and coated with a high-gloss finish. The completed wheels carry a limited two-year warranty.
Proven internationally at every level of FIM Grand Prix competition, BST wheels are DOT-legal for street use in America. Approved for WERA Superbike and Formula 1 roadracing classes, they are also undergoing AMA Pro Racing’s homologation process.
In drag-strip competition, the company sponsors the AMA Dragbike BST Real Street series and offers more than $10,000 in contingency awards for the class. BST-sponsored Keith Thompson leads the championship points chase. BST recently signed motorcycling’s fastest man and woman, land-speed record holders John Noonan and Leslie Porterfield, to roll on its wheels.
On the new partnership, Brock’s Performance president and former American Suzuki Motor Corporation-sponsored racer Brock Davidson says, “I’m flattered that BST selected Brock’s Performance to distribute these beautiful wheels. The BST line is a perfect complement to our product mix as we continue bringing 25 years of sportbike racing knowledge to everyday riders.”
BST’s founder, Gary Turner, says: “Brock is dedicated to the sport and we are proud to have chosen his company to sell BST’s range of Japanese sportbike wheels in the USA. In Brock’s Performance, we have a solid partner that adds value to the BST brand and offers tremendous technical knowledge.”
