PVM Forged 5 Y Spoke Wheel Set
Forged 5 Y Spoke Wheels
This is the second generation of forged wheels made by PVM following the general trend towards FEM calculated wheels. For the first time, weight reduction was the main goal instead of design and visual considerations. The engineers succeeded in achieving a further weight reduction of up to 20% whilst improving the stability of the wheel at the same time.

We went out looking for some nice wheels to complete our shop bike project, and PVM, as the original manufacturer of the wheels for the famed BMW HP2 bikes, was a perfect fit. They've got a variety of different options for all manners of different bikes, but for ours, we went for the minimal and functional 5 Y wheels set. After talking to the folks there at PVM in Germany, we decided we would help out and be a new source for their wheels for the North American market. Lead times from PVM; typically looking at 2-4 months from ordering to them being on their way from Germany.
The wheelsets come with everything needed to install on your bike, bearings, hub mount. Just put tires on, swap components, and install.
For racing and off-highway use only.
