Vortex Racing Sprockets
Made from the highest grade 7075 T6 aluminum, lightweight and durable
Standard sprocket is bright-dipped with a clear anodization for a polished look
CNC machining to the tightest tolerances and a perfected tooth design make for greater longevity and free horsepower
Freestyle sprockets available up to 74 teeth (oversized)
Vortex sprockets are original equipment on exotic bikes, such as the 150HP Buell XBRR
Black PTFE Hardcoat option
PTFE coating reduces friction
Hard chemical treatment bonds to the material for added strength
Proven by top AMA Superbike teams to last 30% longer
The finest aluminum sprockets made. Vortex manufactures sprockets in a different way than its competitors. Vortex eliminates the process known as ‘gear-hobbing’ which some companies employ to save manufacturing costs and time. Gear-hobbing involves the removal of the material before completion. Vortex has found that the tightest tolerances can be obtained by keeping the material stationary during the entire course of the process, resulting in perfectly round (thus longer-lasting) sprockets. Vortex also incorporates a different tooth design called the ‘ideal’ design. The 'ideal' design stems from years of research into the precise workings of a chain and sprocket and dramatically increases the service life of the sprocket. Vortex uses 7075 ‘aerospace’ aluminum, the strongest and lightest material for the application.
Not only are Vortex sprockets standard equipment on exotic machines such as the 150HP Buell XBRR, but independent superbike, drag bike and off-road race teams have found that Vortex sprockets are superior to all other aluminum sprockets. They found that Vortex sprockets not only hold up better, but also last far longer than they previously anticipated a aluminum rear sprocket would last. Many independent race teams use Vortex sprockets exclusively, even though they are not sponsored by Vortex. This is why when you go to a professional AMA race you find that Vortex sprockets definitely dominate the paddock and are used more than any other brand.
Vortex sprockets are available for almost every brand of motorcycle: Aprilia, Ducati, Honda, Husquavarna, Kawasaki, KTM Suzuki and Yamaha.
