Ness wheels with exclusive hidden hub


Ness unveils new wheels with exclusive hidden hub design

Arlen Ness has three new wheel and rotor combination designs for 
2018 - the 7-Valve, ProCross and Flare-5 - all available in either 
chrome or black anodized finish.
The 7-Valve floating rotors are a two-piece design, with CNC-machined 
billet inner carrier and jagged style 420 stainless steel outer band. 
The stainless outer ring is drilled and cut to efficiently perform 
and disperse heat incurred while braking. 
They are available in 11.5”, 11.8” and 14” sizes; 
caliper bracket for 14” rotors additionally available.





 



The matching 7-Valve wheels have a clean 7-spoke design that is said to be “levels above the classic mag. Each one of the 7 spokes is tapered and features sculpted sides with a cut-out center for heavy styling that doesn’t add weight to the motorcycle.
“To keep it consistent, we brought the same design philosophy to the rim lip where large
pockets have been CNC-machined between each spoke to reduce as much weight as possible while adding bold styling. The 7-Valve looks good on any machine and is our best-priced option in the new wheel line-up,” says the legendary Dublin, California based company.
They have been precision-machined from radial forged 6061-T6 aluminum for maximum road durability, structurally tested to meet or exceed DOT, JAS and TÜV international load ratings. The hub design features a cartridge type hub that includes both bearings, pre-set and ready to install in minutes.
The billet aluminum cartridge wheel hub kits are designed to work exclusively with Arlen Ness forged aluminum rims. They feature both wheel bearings pre-set in one hub for optimum radial and lateral runout accuracy. The hub kits mount to Ness rims in minutes and offer excellent flexibility for factory or custom application; the lightweight coped design provides form and function.



Ness’ new 2-piece ProCross floating rotors have a CNC-machined billet inner carrier and also feature jagged style 420 stainless steel outer band and stainless outer ring, drilled and cut to efficiently perform and disperse the heat incurred while braking. Available in 11.5”, 11.8” and 14”; caliper bracket for 14” rotors available additionally.


The ProCross wheel is a “race inspired design with extreme attention to detail, lightweight yet engineered to perform and handle anything the road wants to throw at it. Although the inspiration came from the racetrack, it didn’t mean we didn’t spend countless hours sculpting each “spoke” to ensure it rode the fine line between race and luxury styling.
Also precision-machined from radial forged 6061-T6 aluminum for maximum road durability and structurally tested to meet or exceed DOT, JAS and TÜV international load ratings, the hub design features the Ness cartridge type hub that includes both bearings, pre-set and ready to install in minutes; also available in chrome or black anodized finish.



Finally, the 2018 Flare-5 14” front rotors are 420 stainless steel rotors, for use with Arlen Ness Flare-5 wheels only. They ship with floating hardware, and the 14” billet aluminum caliper bracket is available separately.



The Flare-5 wheel “represents the next level in motorcycle wheel design. Sculpted CNC features extend from the axle all the way to the outer edge of the rim lip. Its multi-piece design features a radial forged rim, forged hub covers, hidden cartridge hub and spoke-mounted 14” rotors for a combo never before seen in the V-twin aftermarket. Flare-5 is the first design in the Ness premium wheel series. 




“The forged covers of the single piece cartridge type hidden hub with its pre-set bearings are specially designed to bring full 3D styling from the bearing in the hub to the outer edge of the rim lip.”
