The fender of the M1000RR is much more than just a fender. It elegantly combines the function of previously three components in a single one. The integrated air ducts constantly supply fresh air to the brake calipers while riding to reduce the risk of brake fade. Tested under the toughest conditions, it helps achieve success in the world's most diverse racing series. It already helped the Tecmas Stock Team to a commanding victory at the legendary 24h of LeMans. But the fender cuts a fine figure not only on the race track, but also on the road. But so that not only the new M models benefit from the additional cooling, we looked for a way to make the fender compatible with other models, too. The ABE therefore covers not only the new BMW M1000RR, but all current four-cylinders of BMW. To benefit even more from the aerodynamic advancements on the front wheel, the rear flap prepares the additional mounting of the wheel covers.
Through the long continuation of the side surfaces to the rear, not only the air resistance is reduced when driving, but also the sensitive lower fork tubes for the first time reliably protected from stone chips.
In order to obtain a harmonious overall picture, the fiber layers are inserted and aligned in the mold by experts. The carbon part fits perfectly into the surrounding shapes of the motorcycle. The more of our parts are installed and combined, the more overwhelming the result.
For our carbon we only use prepreg fabric specially produced for this purpose, which is also used in a similar form in Formula 1 and space travel. The material, which is elaborately hand-laminated and cured in several stages in the autoclave, not only impresses with its unique appearance but also with its unique technical properties. With the same volume, it has a specific stiffness three times as high as steel and at the same time, due to its particularly low density, only a fraction of its weight.
In order to optimally protect this high-quality material from all kinds of environmental influences, we are the only carbon manufacturer worldwide to use a specially developed plastic coating on all surfaces. In combination with our clear varnish. This ensures a previously unattainable and unique depth effect, which allows the high quality of the material to come into its own.
So that not only driving but also screwing is a pleasure, we only use the original fastening points for this part.
