New NF E13 wheels

They don't need any insert:

Why nobody didn't make it before !!?
What is the price ?
How will be fixed the tired ?
Do we have to change the wheel when the tire is out ?
Is it possible to put it on the SB5 with the rear belt ? And with the front brake ?
What are the feeling differences on the track between the Roadies and these E13 ?

Interesting... the roadies are as hard as a rock.. but they work reallly well... so I can see that these would work too... but I'm wondering the same things about what kind of tires are going to work on them and how they are mounted.

If you take look at the clearance between wheel and swingarm, it seems there's no room for any tire on the rim. My guess is, this is a dummy of a complete wheel for displaying some other part of the bike.
Sad really, it would be an interesting new approach for bike tires.

A better picture, I stand corrected.

It look like the anderson tyres, which are not glued to the wheel, it could be really good

I have trouble glueing the small lip of the conventional pmt as it is, the whole tire seems a lot more trouble.
If they (PMT or GRP) offer a compound like the one the ROADIES use, to sit on these rims we would have healthy competition back in the tire market

Those wheels are designed for all the pmt tires.

And they have been tested in Italy. The result is very positive and the wear is very good.

I think they will be available in few weeks as well as the new superbike. Maybe even few days. The bike needed two new parts after tests in Riccione, the design of those parts is ready. No more news from NF at this moment.

I designed that rims last year as a gift to NF teammates before left the factory team; they fit PMT tyres.
Now I'm working for something new that fit all the common standard rims.
If next tests will be positive, you will found it.

brilliant... now make a design that will fit on the SB5, and offer them at a reasonable price... then you will be awesome

Is this a solid polyurethane insert?
This would be heavier than the massari inserts and harder, is that so?
