    we got to install tires on a set of those split spoke BST recently.....so freaking awesome.

    though not any lighter than forged OEMs from Aprilia.

    Brock's says they don't have all the info yet but they expect the 7-spokers to be lighter (and stronger) than the original 5-spoke BSTs.

    Impressive for the Ape wheels for sure, but where do they carry the weight? Whichever set carries their weight closer to the hub will perform better (on the track anyway).
