August 1, 2014 - French wheel manufacturer Beringer presented two brand-new products at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014. The company says its new 4-inch wheel, single-caliper disc brake and sealed ball-bearing design—weighing only 1.1 kg, or 39 ounces—is the lightest on the market.
The company also announced a new 8-inch wheel, designed for aircraft weighing up to 6,000 lbs. As with other products from the company, the wheel is red anodized aluminum.
Finally, the company's new 6-inch rim with dual-caliper option is being offered for STOL and LSA aircraft with welded 1.5-inch axles.
