Arrow Rotobox Carbon Fiber Wheels for the H2/H2R



The Rotobox Carbon Fiber Wheels are ultra light motorcycle wheels for racing and road application and an upgrade product to any model of sportbike. Our wheels have been designed to meet the highest level of racing performance and due to one-piece hollow carbon cast construction the wheels develop a safe and controlled advantage in speed, providing the lowest moment of inertia and the lowest gyroscopic effect.



The Rotobox wheels are the lightest and the strongest carbon fiber motorcycle wheels, due to use of premium materials and advanced technology. Our process of producing one-piece hollow carbon cast is an adaptation of high-pressure Resin Transfer Molding technology to ensure the best quality, the continuity of the procedure and subsequent safety of our products.

I can speak for the BSTs, after that unusual tire wear I had from what looked like the torque folding the tire, ..when we removed I tire I had my guy look for any cracks in the wheel and it came up clean. No issues here so far. However, I would advice you avoid hitting pot holes

And my OEMs still look stunning, mint condition, not rock chips, and they are stored in my BST boxes.
road miles = rock chips = OEM wheels not looking good. And BTW there is no touch up paint available for our OEM wheels. And that reflective stripe we have around our OEM wheels chips easy too.

If I remember right on Brock's website he has specs for the weight comparisons. If I'm remembering that wrong then I saw the comparisons YouTube videos. But I definitely saw comparisons on stock weight vs CF for the H2. FYI weight savings was the last of the benefits that was important to me, behind the looks & complements I get, how easy they are to clean compared to the stock wheels, and they don't rock chip as much as the stock wheels, and most importantly my stock rims are mint in a box.

Stock rear wheel is 17 pounds? How about the front wheels and how about durability?

Both are incredible wheels, you cannot go wrong either way. They both are incredibly strong and incredibly light. They both have the same load ratings, both are DOT approved for street use. I recommend that you choose based off of the look that you like best for the bike that you are putting them on. The BSTs, in my opinion, have a more traditional, or classic type of design, where the Rotobox are a bit more contemporary. You cannot make a wrong choice, either way you go, you will love them.
