Vertex pistons are manufactured in Italy and are the premier brand of replacement pistons around the world. Their pistons are trusted by OEMs such as KTM, Husqvarna, Beta, and Gas Gas. The company offers enthusiasts state-of-the-art, high-quality pistons for nearly any powersports use. Vertex collaborates with factory race teams on piston design, which allows them to build on their outstanding dedication to quality while continuing to bring their products to market at an affordable price.
Vertex piston kits include the piston, rings, wrist pin and circlips. The pistons are heat-treated with a T-6 hardening and tempering cycle. Also, a molybdenum disulphide skirt coating is used for reducing wear and improving the break-in phase of each piston. Vertex pistons are forged from 4032 aluminum alloy and have an exact fit that will match the cylinder bore perfectly. This maximizes power and performance while reducing blow-by and oil consumption.
New this year and in stock, the forged replica, High Compression and GP Racer's Choice piston kits are available for the 2018 Yamaha YZ450F, as well as the '16-'18 KTM 250 SX-F and XC-F and Husqvarna FC 250 (includes the Big Bore option). Both the High Compression piston kit and the GP Racer’s Choice kit provide increased power and performance. They use T-Box forging, a shot-peened dome, and DLC-coated wrist pins to achieve the maximum level of performance and quality.
These four-stroke bikes are power houses that deserves something special for the top end, and Vertex has really delivered. Vertex pistons are the choice for those who truly seek optimum performance for any powersports application. Trusted around the world by the top OEMs, Vertex piston power will take your ride to the next level.
