We have designed, developed and manufactured our own heavy-duty, spoked wheels for the new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin, based on our rally & adventure experiences.
These are a big improvement over the tubed OEM versions, which only use plated steel spokes and nipples, and have had corrosion problems, plus are the OEM rims are too wide to run with competition tyres & bib mousses. Our design of rims are the same as most enduro bikes, KTM EXC etc, so that a wide choice of off-road tyres and mousses are available.
We have used these extensively over the last 12 months in several rallies, and have had no problems when racing with mousses fitted. They are supplied with rim tapes for those that may choose to run inner tubes.
Both front and rear hubs are manufactured from 6082T6 billet aluminium alloy, and black anodised for a durable finish.
Benefits of our wheel kit:
Both rims are high-grade aluminium alloy, with rim tapes fitted.
The rim sizes are 21"x1.85 front and 18"x2.50 rear, 36 spoke hole pattern, and are available in black or gold powder coat.
We prefer the powder-coat rather than anodising for the reason it is more durable, less resistant to marking when riding off-road, or changing tyres. And also they can be "touched up" with paint, if required, if they do happen to get damaged.
