The moment of inertia of an object about a
given axis describes how difficult it is to change
its angular motion about that axis. Therefore,
it encompasses not just how much mass the
object has overall, but how far each bit of mass
is from the axis. The further out the object's
mass is, the more rotational inertia the object
has, and the more rotational force (torque, the
force multiplied by its distance from the axis of
rotation) is required to change its rotation rate.
The Deda REVERSE INERTIA system cuts
37,1g from the outermost part of the wheels, the
rims, which most affect the moment of inertia.
