Looks like a weird knockoff of the ZTL from Buehl.

(Although he says it about everything) Crev said the brakes on the XBRR were trash. I doubt this would be much better.

perimiter brakes were out long before the beuuulke was . he may have a patent to his system but its not like no one else had it,,id have to chek some old street fighter mags to find another company .


there is so many bullshit make belive ,totally not needed parts for bikes and cars out there .at least its not that gattling gun pipe .or digital wheels

This may be a stupid question, but....how do you change the rotor?

hopefully they are rebuild able buttons, and it looks like the outer wheel halves are bolted on to the rim I'm sure he thought of that ,otherwise ,,I'm sure you could buy another set.lol

looks like three piece wheels.
edit: a little too late. looks like i'm slow or the computer is slow.

also, i'd wonder about how hot the brakes would get with that setup

So are those 2 sets of 2 piston front brakes? or 2 sets of 4 mini pistons?

Also, with this placement, I wonder how the centrifugal force would change - since it's more centralized and all. Any ideas?

Does this compromise the integrity of the wheel at all? I would feel like a "bolted together" wheel just wouldn't be as robust as a regular one-piece. But what the hell do I know about wheels? Nothing.

First lesson on wheels.....

.....They are usually round.

i beleive three piece wheels are lighter and stronger than forged or otherwise wheels. i know for cars the most expensive and lightweight performance wheels are all 3 peice bolted together. assembled built and designed right they outperform most other wheels. i think its kinda neat but seems like a hassle. unless there is some major performance benefit (as if sport bike brakes arent good enough) they are jsut for the "cool" factor in my eyes

From what I can tell they've gone through a lot of trouble to bring some symmetry to an old concept. I like it but would prefer ceramic brakes on carbon wheels if it's all about overkill. Interesting to see continental tires on race bikes.
