New 2-piece lightweight 6'' main wheel & brake assembly

Beringer announces new lightweight 6” main wheel assembly for LSA and other light aircraft

Beringer Wheels & Brakes has announced a new 2-piece lightweight 6'' main wheel and brake assembly for LSA and other very light aircraft, featuring greater strength, lighter weight, and longer brake-pad life than ever.

The new wheel is a 2-piece design; and the wheel is a tubeless design, further reducing complexity and weight while saving time during tire replacement. Only one O-ring is needed for assembly; and, for the standard-size 4.00-6 tire, no special tire-mounting fixture is required.

“This wheel gives aircraft owners a new option in convenience, strength, aesthetics, and of course weight,” said Gilbert Beringer, President of Beringer Wheels & Brakes. “We are happy to offer it to builders and maintainers, alike. Always lighter; always strong.”

The new wheel assembly is 6.3 ounces lighter than even the lightweight 3-piece Beringer predecessor; and its static load is increased, for aircraft rated up to 1870 lbs MTOW. The brake pad life projection has been upgraded to 1500 cycles, for further savings in cost and downtime.

The new “SL series” wheel is machined from solid 2017 aluminum billet and bright anodized. ISO standard sealed ball bearings and a rigid valve stem are factory-installed, as is the tire. Every assembly is pressure-tested before shipping.
