Air Intake Systems Bike
The CRF, Carbon Racing Filter, is BMC's high performance sports air filter, designed for road and competition bikes. It features a 100% carbon fiber support structure and a cotton filter element.
Wholly designed and created by the Racing and Advanced Composites divisions, the CRF was created from the maximum expression of BMC’s know-how, acquired over more than 10 years of commitment in the Racing sector, which has brought records and results of absolute importance and an increase in performance to racing car/motorcycle engines.
The CRF air filter uses technical solutions and measures aimed at optimizing the fluid dynamics of the air directed to the engine. The geometry of the CRF is designed with the aim of exploiting the entire available volume of the standard air-box, thanks to an extensive filtering surface. The result is therefore a better channeling of the air flow during the intake phase, thus keeping the air-box under constant pressure.
The support structure of the CRF is connected directly to the original air-box, respecting its sealing and assembly, and is completely in pre-impregnated carbon fiber, with a cure cycle carried out in an autoclave. Thanks to this solution, the CRF has a very low overall weight, but with excellent characteristics in terms of rigidity and mechanical resistance.
The filter element is made of a particular multilayer material in RACE configuration, impregnated with low viscosity oil and coupled with an aluminum mesh, treated with epoxy resins, which prevent oxidation. This configuration offers high permeability values and low resistance to air flow, ensuring high filtration efficiency.
The CRF filter is designed with the aim of supporting the vibrations and heat generated in motion, both when used on the road and under intensive use on the track.
Like all BMC filters, the CRF is regenerable and reusable. Once the saturation level has been reached, the filter can be regenerated through a washing and re-oiling process, using the special BMC kit.
The CRF air filter is a patented product with a registered industrial design.
