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. A forged aluminium front wheel sized 3.5 x 17’’ e.g. for a Ducati 998R now weighs only 3.3 kg completely ready for fitting. The weight optimization is even more striking for the back wheels: In this case for example the 6 x 17’’ wheel of a Yamaha R1 was reduced to slightly more than 5 kg.

We went out looking for some nice wheels to complete our shop bike project, and PVM, as the original manufacture 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 a month from ordering to them being on their way from Germany. When we can, we'll stock the sets in their raw machined silver state (which looks great on its own), with the option to powder coat, cerakote, anodize in a variety of colors at an additional cost.
The wheel sets 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
Wheels are made to order, expect roughly a month lead time.
