Tacoma, WA ~ September 15, 2008 ~ W8less Products, a manufacturer of composite rotors and brake pads for the motorcycle industry, today announced that its latest full floating brake rotors for sports bikes have exceeded all Department of Transportation’s (D.O.T.) testing criteria. W8less Products is now shipping the sports bike rotors to riders worldwide and beginning conversations with motorcycle manufacturers to have the full floating rotors considered as original equipment.
“Exceeding D.O.T. compliancy allows us to ship the product to sports bike customers worldwide, said Raymond Wheeler, director of sales and marketing. “In addition, many manufactures can now offer the W8lessrotors on its motorcycles as original equipment drastically improving the braking and handling of their bikes.”
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 sports bike rotors have exceeded the D.O.T. standards, they will be able to continue conversations with high profiled motorcycle manufactures and be considered for inclusion on production vehicle lines as original equipment.
The W8less Products rotors, are made of a patent-pending composite material, 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 a drastically reduced breaking distance. 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 showed no evidence of fading despite numerous high speed stops.
In addition to the added safety, the W8lessrotor 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 W8lessrotors 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.
