YZF-R1M brake caliper ー by Needle Felting
The brake caliper is an important part that stops the bike tyres. We have reproduced an almost life-size YZF-R1M brake caliper.
Brake caliper made by needle felting!
It is the brake caliper which adjusts a bike’s speed enclosing the disc plate that is attached to the wheel that spins at high speed with disc pads. We have completely reproduced an almost life-size brake caliper mounted on the YZF-R1M! It has a complex structure and an overwhelming presence.
Enjoy making this beautiful structure in felt which looks like it has been carved from metal!
Collaboration / supervision: Japan Wool Felt Association
