lightweight rotor

Februry, saw the completion of our first 'mupod' rotor for Entecho The brief was to improve on the previous rotor by making the next one stiffer and lighter, but mostly lighter. This was quite a task as the original one weighed only 380grams. a good weight for a 400mm dimeter part.
We were more than pleased when we met their challenge and come in a smidge under 260grams. The rotor looked really smart in a clear carbon fibre finish, which is in large part due to Entecho assisting with inhouse machining of aluminium tools dedicated to the pre preg process we selected, good communication and working time frame.
