Carbon Revolution produces the world’s only one-piece carbon fiber wheel:

the most technically advanced wheel on the planet, and one of the most advanced lightweight technologies on any car.

The innovative Aussies from Geelong, in Victoria (Yes, the same place they once built FORD Motor cars. Henry would be proud of them!) who created the first one-piece carbon fiber wheel overcame an immense challenge on how to optimize the structural integrity and create the ideal stiffness for ultimate performance.

Carbon-Revolution-Wheel-1The company technicians and scientists have also developed techniques to ensure a consistent, high-quality manufacturing process in the most critical automotive application of lightweight and strong rolling stock with exceptional balance.

The proprietary and patented Carbon Revolution manufacturing process shapes and forms the carbon fiber into the complex internal structure of the wheel. Automated operations result in high-volume, precision fabrication of the carbon fiber preforms. 

A great car deserves the best wheels.

Tested in Germany to the highest TüV standards, and available for purchase, Carbon Revolution knows carbon fiber better than anybody.

Backed by patents and many awards, the one-piece Carbon Revolution CR-9 doesn’t just look like the future of wheels, it is the future. And you can drive that future today! 

PERFORMANCE

GO FASTER BY GOING LIGHTER

The Carbon Revolution engineering team has many years of experience with composite technology, with decades of experience in Aerospace and Automotive Design. Our Engineers employ cutting-edge computer modeling tools to optimize the composite structures to very precise specifications, ensuring the wheels improve vehicle performance.

1.Start line: Launch hard with reduced inertia: get more power to the ground.

2.Tight high-g corner, higher cornering speeds due to increased grip. +0.14s

3.Bumps on track. Carbon wheels glide right over the bumps. Bumps upset the car with the aluminum wheel forcing the driver to breath on the throttle costing time and creating more work for the driver. +0.08s

4.Very tough section, off-camber, mid-corner bump and a wide line will hit curbing. Improved grip over curbing, improved steering precision and better chassis control allows the driver to keep the throttle wide open. +0.42s

5.Large bump and g-out in middle of the track typically upsets the chassis with aluminum wheels. Improved suspension performance due to lightweight CR-9 wheels allows the suspension to soak up the bumps without upsetting the chassis. +0.14s

6.Late braking, early on the throttle and increased grip mid corner. +0.45s

7.Finish line: total split = 1.23sec, almost 13 vehicle lengths on the straight!

  • All around the track the transitions in and out of the corners are smoother.
  • Far less adjustments by the driver to steering and throttle allows the car to taker a better line and not have to lift.
  • If you can get back to throttle quicker on corner exit lap times will come down.

DRIVER FEEDBACK & LAP TIMES

  • Improved suspension performance increases grip, enhancing control and stability in the corner
  • Improved steering feel made the car easier to drive at the limit

* Average speed on the straight was 104mph resulting in a gap of 13 vehicle lengths for the 1.243sec split in lap times
