Physics shows the heavier the object to move the more energy consumption that is needed. Physics also shows that the heavier the object traveling the more effort needed to stop it, creating greater friction.Therefore, when talking of motorcycles, the idea of weight saving can dramatically enhance the bikes handling and performance. Weight saving will translate into less energy to control, better performance, better handling, better braking and better acceleration.
GALE SPEED has finally made its presence felt. GALE SPEED is designed, forged and CNC machined in high quality to satisfy motorcycle enthusiasts who seek better performance._ By making your motorcycle life a heightened sense of being, it can now give you the satisfaction and smoothness you have always dreamt of.
After notched up the very first champion of Moto3 class with showing overwhelming strength,
Sandro Cortese, a young talented German rider, moved up to Moto2 class in 2013 season,
with a new team called "Dynavolt Intact GP" owned by Jurgen Lingg, a former German pro-rider.
And this year, we decided to support this new Moto2 team and the very first Moto3 champ with our products.
On the front and rear end, our flagship model, Gale Speed Type-GP1 Magnesium wheel, are equipped.
And to support the young talented rider's hand control, Gale Speed radial-pump racing brake mastercylinder helps his hard and precise braking. Also, our Throttle kit "EVO" backs up his very precise throttle control.
Belows are Sandro's comments about our products;
For me, Gale Speed simply is the best brand. It is a brand that I trust and you can make very fine adjustments.
Mastercylinder : The brake pressure of the Gale Speed mastercylinder is very stable, also over a long distance or at high temperatures.
EVO throttle kit : With the extended active throttle kit of Gale Speed you have a better sensitiveness. You can play more and you can gently open the throttle.
TYPE-GP1S : Its a great ride feeling with the wheels of Gale Speed. It has less chatter compared to many others. They run very smooth and additionally they look fantastic
This is the street version of TYPE-GP which has been proven its performance by many races not only in Japan but also in overseas races. With originally designed 5 spokes, it has better flexibility, higher stiffness and maximum weight saving in higher level

All new designed 5-spoke forged Aluminum/Magnesium one-piece wheel.
Adopt unique curved design inside of each spoke to gain the flexibility at the radial direction load.And as a result, achieve higher stability when hard braking and running at high speed corners.
TUV.front :2.5x17, 3.5x17and 3.75x17,
rear: 3.5x17 and 6.0x17
Type-GP1 is available in these colors, Pearl white, Semi-Gloss black and Gold.
Type-S is the newest and the lightest forged aluminum wheel suitable for both race and road use. Bearings of the front wheel are directly mounted on the hub, and wider 15-spoke gives high rigidity and preciseness on corners.Type-S complies with industrial standards JWL and German TUV.front : 3.5x17,
rear: 5.5x17 and 6.0x17
Type-S is available in these colors, Pearl white, Semi-Gloss black and Gold.
With our own designed rim, spoke and hub section specifications, we collaborated with Dome Carbon Magic Co., Ltd. by using their special manufacturing process called "Optimized design" and designed a beautiful hollow type carbon fiber wheel while it has enough stiffness. The beautiful look and stylish design, the high-performance which must be fullfilled by street-use and the yield percentage are collaborating in higher-level.
High-end model Type-M has just been launched for racing enthusiasts. Identical to type-R in design, but the rim, spoke and hub were newly designed to enhance the performance, and weight saved by up to the limit.
It's used by world dominant teams.
It comes in front 3.5 x 17-inch and rear 6.0 x 17-inch applications to fit Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Ducati.

A new 17 inch aluminum wheel Type-R, was born to pursue the ideal of the finest motorcycle wheel. It has been commonly found that gyroscopic action directly relates to the performance of the motorcycle. Its design, including the spoke and the hub has given the Type-R a distinct advantage by reducing its weight by 10% ( compared with Type-C). Moreover, the Type-R with its exterior style has grabbed the imagination of riders, and with this superior design and performance has remarkably increased its reach and potential for motorcycle racing.
Born on the road in racing circuits of Japan, a JDM 17 inch aluminum wheel Type-C from ACTIVE CO. Ltd. combines a great style and strength with state-of -art racing engineering. The method of manufacturing allows for a thinner wall construction, which effectively reduces the wheels weight. Type-C combines technologies used in sport bike racing to create a stylish, aerodynamic wheel in a hot forged design that is strong enough for use on all types of roads and conditions.
