Today we want to talk to you about a motorcycle wheel. But not just any wheel! No doubt about it. Take just one look at the new Turbo wheel and you know the billet masterpiece was given life by none other than our VP of Design, Roland Sands. If you’ve picked up our most recent catalog, you know we’re pleased to be able to offer the new forged Turbo wheel — part of the RSD branded line of products.
To say the Turbo wheel is at the forefront of wheel design is only half the truth. Roland waxes poetic as he describes his latest masterpiece as being: “direct and driven by purpose — and it shows in every hard edge and rim cut. It bleeds modern design, yet still hints at good old-fashioned hot style.”
The lightening pockets featured on the smooth rim lip are eye-catching, to be sure. But there’s also method to this detailed madness. The removal of mass from the rim lightens the wheel, and that in turn increases performance.
“At RSD, we helped to create a performance niche in the V-Twin industry that many have come to replicate and adapt as their own,” Roland said. “We are stoked to see how many bikes are being created using Performance Machine and RSD parts, incorporating the high–performance spirit.”
The Turbo is equally stunning in both chrome and our trademarked Contrast Cut finish, and is offered with matching components, including discs and sprockets that’ll create a custom package for any motorcycle.
