Solid made alloy rim made by FA Italia. This rim enables you to fit tubeless tyres, as known from motorcycles. These rims are a straight replacement for your standard rim. Advantages are:
40 % less weight
Safety plus because of double hump
Better reaction of dampers
Easy to fit
LESS WEIGHT: The rim itself has 300 gr. less weight compared to a standard 2,5-10 rim. The tube adds another 370 gr. weight to the tube type tyres. So with this rim you have over 500 gr. less of non-suspended mass. The response characteristics of the suspension is very much improved. ONE TO WATCH:The alignment of this rim is offset by 2.5 mm compared to the standard 2.5-10 rim. Fitting of the rims at rear and front gives no misalignment at all. If you are going to use this rim as a wide wheel rim replacement of a 2.10-10 rim there will be a misalignment of 4.5 mm. This causes the scooter slightly pulling to the left hand side under hard breaking. A good combination is to use the standard size rim on the front and this wider rim at the rear. If you want to have this combination real perfect, you equal the misalignment of front and rear tyre by 2.5 mm by putting the engine to the right by 2.5 mm. Fitting can be done with a tyre tool or can be sourced out to a workshop. The rim does not have an approval mark and it must be fitted with tube type (TT) tyres only.
