I haven't used them, but at the Tomahawk GNCC, Chris Venditti was at the Maxxis truck having a heck of a time with his.....he'd broken a spoke, and since they thread into the hub on those wheels, it was a nightmare to get out...drilling and easy outs and so on to remove a busted spoke.

Never used them, but I would use faster USA. Hubs made in the USA out of US material! Make America great again one hub at a time. Buy American. Unless your not into that sort of thing.

And buy stuff you can get parts for.

Are there any wheels that weigh about the same as stock wheels or less?

Pretty sure just about all of your aftermarket complete wheels will be a bit heavier than stock, since the aftermarket stuff is normally billet hubs...the hubs are typically heavier than stock cast hubs

My buddy is the guy behind selling these wheels in the US. I have had mine since November and all the maintenance I had to do was tighten the spokes on the front wheel one time and haven't had to touch the rear. The spokes thread into the hub and that's why they say the spokes don't get loose as easy. I think they are $1400 a set Photo

Is easy the Most innovative design out there, I was wondering the other day why I don't see any getting around, but I though it would come down to people not knowing much about it and once youve got the set if you need parts you have to keep buying from Marchesini seeing as everything is exclusive to them. Thats not a bad thing but 1400 US a set is a bad thing.

I just asked him to make sure and they are $1249 a set. The wheels are high quality so I plan on keeping mine around as long as yamaha keeps everything the same on new bikes

It's the old old rad Mfg owner. won't be rad hubs tho ,

After rad was sold to the last owner , he began designing and making his own hubs as the old RAD required different spoke and bearings which were some complaints back then .

And waaalaa these were created .

How do they weigh compared to your stock wheels

I am planning on weighing hubs alone soon. I haven't had too many guys order just hubs as the wheel set price is so low that it makes sense to get the complete set .

Will let ya know when I have the weights .
