Roland Sands Design Traction Flat Track Race Wheels

1For those who don’t know, Roland Sands Design is a motorcycle, product and apparel company that has its roots in racing. RSD Traction Flat Track Race Wheels are built for the racetrack to provide lightweight, strong wheels that are capable of surviving the wide variety of tracks and surfaces you may encounter. The original billet flat track wheel was designed for PM by Roland Sands in 2004. The Traction wheel continues that championship winning history.

The new Traction flat track wheels are made in California by Performance Machine to the highest quality standards in the industry. Sold separately, race proven 8 lug hub sets are finely machined for accuracy and weight reduction matching the 8 lug hub pattern of the wheel itself. Computerized FEA testing and real life testing, both in the laboratory and on the race track, have come together to produce a rock solid design that will live with your race machine for many seasons. Physical/destructive lab tested to the strictest guidelines. Manufactured in California by Performance Machine.

    Hey Roland or Performance Machine…How about bringing back the Vader line of wheels?

    Remove 1/2 the spokes, make them thicker and I like the wheel!

    I’d be interested to see a short video of the testing process. It sounds cool!

    Looks like an Ultima “Manhattan” wheel but 5 times the cost.
