Tacoma, WA -- November 17, 2008
W8less Products, a manufacturer of composite rotors and brake pads for the motorcycle industry, today announced that its popular composite rotors are now forged instead of cast. These forged rotors are proven to have twice the tensile strength and far greater ductility than earlier cast rotors. These 4th Generation (G4) rotors are still approximately 60% lighter than a stock OE brake rotor and offer all the benefits of the original cast rotors. The G4 rotor is D.O.T. compliant and is currently shipping to the public.
“By forging the new 4th Generation products, we have tremendously increased the strength of the product, said Raymond Wheeler, Director of Sales. “Now riders have the lightest and the strongest rotor on the market and it is currently available.”
Though there is no requirement to have D.O.T. testing on aftermarket products, W8less Products tests all of its rotors to ensure they are safe both on and off the road. Now dealers and consumers can rest assured that these products will be a perfect fit for their motorcycles.
All D.O.T. standards must be passed before a new production vehicle can be certified as road worthy. Now that W8less Products’ rotors have exceeded the D.O.T. standards, they will continue conversations with high profiled motorcycle manufactures for inclusion as OE (original equipment) on their production vehicles.
W8less Products’ rotors are made of a patent-pending Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) material that is upwards of 60% lighter than a cast iron or stainless rotor. The reduction of weight allows for increased acceleration, better handling at high speeds and significantly reduced breaking distances with our proprietary brake pads. Testing has shown that W8less Products’ rotors stop in less than half the distance of D.O.T. standards with only moderate brake line pressure. These rotors also shed heat quickly, run much cooler and show no evidence of fading despite numerous high speed stops during testing.
In addition to the added safety, the W8less Products’ rotor will not rust, warp or squeal unlike other rotors on the market. When used with the proprietary brake pads, riders will also see a noticeable increase in the life of their brake pads, providing an immediate return on the riders’ investment.
All of W8less Products’ rotors and brake pads are made in the US and are available with a polished full-floating carrier or anodized for a more custom look.
