GRP steering wheels
The JEFA GRP wheels are strong and light. A modern alternative for metal and more affordable than carbon.
Jefa GRP wheels are produced in a one piece aluminium mold with vacuum technology and a foam core resulting in a very stiff light construction. The wheel is painted with a 2 component black or white finish. The 1000 mm version is the first wheel in this range and weighs 3,1 kgs. The rim is oval shaped, 32 x 26 mm. Other wheel dimension will follow soon.

The Jefa steering wheel tapers and hubs
All wheels up to 1500 mm have the 25 mm steering shaft taper, from 1600 mm diameter onwards the wheels have the 30 mm taper. All pedestals have the 25 mm shaft and some bulkhead steerers (BS30) and transmission steering boxes are build with the 30 mm steering shaft. Below you will find a drawing of the tapers and the wheel hubs with the distance – start of taper to wheel centre line – .

Quick release wheel nut for fast wheel removal
The quick release nut is very handy when the steering wheel obstructs the free passage in the cockpit. It replaces the standard wheel nut and can be operated with a standard winch handle. This way the steering wheel can be quickly removed when not needed.
