How much safer are BST carbon fiber wheels than standard wheels?

Carbon fiber wheels have been around for some considerable time and have been proven to be safe when designed and manufactured properly and, as with any wheel, used within their design parameters. One of the parameters is the maximum static weight of the motorcycle for which the wheel is designed (BST sportbike wheels are designed for motorcycles that weigh up to 617 lb dry) and have more than adequate strength and damage tolerance for any usage within road/street, sport or race environment. Safety is dependent on more than just strength and stiffness. Due to improved handling and therefore lower driver fatigue and effort, BSTs make a positive contribution towards driver safety.
