Freeline is among the most known and successful trademarks in the world for karting components.
Other than mounting every Birel kart, Freeline components have been chosen by many other karting constructors thanks to the exceptional quality that distinguishes the entire gamma.
Quality and efficiency is in fact the factory’s trademark for Freeline production which includes brake systems, inlet silencers, wheels, steering wheels, axles, spindles and all the other components of a kart.
Behind the Freeline success, there is research and development, advanced project and technician development, and data of countless hours of testing on tracks and in the laboratory.
The target that inspires every project is the research of effectiveness in terms of performance, reliability and practicality, which are all determining aspects for the racing use.
Another distinguished sign for every Freeline product is a sought-after design in every single detail, features greatly appreciated by passionate karters.
Freeline 2010 innovations include the new front hubs developed by Birel Motorsport A, for better frame fluency.
Among the most popular accessories also to mention the range of magnesium components.
These accessories are useful for optimizing kart total weight (frame weight can be reduced by around 1.3 Kg) and can greatly influence set up, decreasing grip for a smoother ride.
The magnesium accessory range includes axle flanges B, rear hubs C, brake disc holder D and crown E.
In braking systems, Freeline proposes cast iron discs F as an alternative to steel ones.
The choice exclusively depends on the driver’s preferences: by applying the same braking force, steel discs are for firmer braking while cast iron provides a more modulable impact.
Freeline also presents a footrest G machined from solid, which is standard for the Birel kart line, a seat manufactured in collaboration with Tillet H, the Hi-Tech steering column O, a big favourite in competitive ambit, and CIK homologated fairings I, marketed exclusively in white to be customized to each single kart with PVC stickers.
Among the highly useful innovations for Junior classes, a pedal block machined from solid M, fitted with a sliding system anchored to the steering column support for pedal adjustment.
A solution suitable for any kart, excellently combining functionality, safety and design. To finish, a new version of Freeline number stickers N.
Magnesium vs Aluminium
Components in magnesium compared to aluminum, in the first place they offer you an advantage from the weight stand point of view.
To give you a maximum indication, if you were to use all magnesium components on the rear end, the overall weight of about 1.3 kg would be reduced but the substantial difference is however the nature of technique.
In fact every magnesium component makes the kart lighter and leaves it slide better, meaning that these components play an important part in case you needs would be to reduce the grip of the kart to the front end or to the rear end as these situations happen when you have a track that accumulates a lot of rubber.
