PR: BERINGER Introduces Nosewheel Solution for Van's RV-10

Press Release: BERINGER Introduces Nosewheel Solution for Van's RV-10

Tallard, France: BERINGER Wheels & Brakes®, the high-performance leaders in
light aircraft wheels and brakes, announces a new nosewheel and axle
solution for the popular Van's RV-10.

The new nosewheel kit includes the lightweight BERINGER wheel and a mounted
tubeless tire, plus the unique 1-piece thru-axle and associated parts and
hardware necessary for the installation.

Builders have long battled the setup of the nose wheel, which, in the
original configuration, often results in either
too-tight or too-loose fitment, resulting in poor ground handling or excess

Not only is the sensitive problem of front-axle tension eliminated with the
BERINGER thru-axle, the use of low-resistance ball bearings (instead of the
usual tapered rollers) noticeably reduces rolling resistance. While this may
not shorten your takeoff roll, you will appreciate it when you're parking
your RV after a long flight.

Retail is $649, and includes high-strength aluminum axle and spacer, plus
the assembled wheel assembly with mounted and pressure-tested Michelin tire.
9.1 pounds, total.

Beringer wheels feature sealed lifetime ball bearings, high-strength
aluminum axles, and a tubeless tire design, saving weight and lowering
temperature buildup while reducing the chance of a blowout.

Beringer will exhibit at Oshkosh, Booth # 437, and the company plans to
offer an "exchange rate discount" for customers who pay with dollars. (The
amount will depend on the prevailing exchange rate.)

Spare and replacement parts are readily available in the USA through
Aircraft Spruce.
