DUKE Crazy Star 6TERS Rear Rim 29″
The aluminium reference in Trail / All-Mountain rims
A rear wheel has to be comfortable, strong and has to offer more efficiency. For these reasons the Duke Crazy Star 6TERS rear rim has seen a lot of optimization and reinforcements.
The DUKE Crazy Star 6Ters rear rim is 3mm narrower and 1.5mm smaller compared to the front version. It has an asymmetrical profile (2.2mm offset), which makes it possible to maintain the lateral stiffness and durability of the wheel without gaining weight. Furthermore this improves the efficiency, the strength and the grip. Thanks to its profile it can be used on all terrain types.
- made of strong Dynamal alloy
- Tubeless Ready
- asymmetric (Offset) Profile
- hookless rim
- Offset: 2.2mm
Technologies & Features
This type of rim is far stronger than the traditional clincher rim. Duke has used this technology with great success, on their rims since 2011
The bead of the tyre is held in position irrespective of the tyre pressure and the ground conditions, preventing any risk of the tyre coming off its rim even when giving it full gas in the corners.
By offsetting, DUKE was able to increase the potential lateral wheel strength and its stability without adding weight. Rim drillings are off-center to improve bracing angles for a stronger, more rigid wheel.
The Duke 6TERS concept offers a narrower rear rim than the front rim for more grip and stiffness. Its robustness is preferred instead of low weight.
Wide inner rim
A wider profile rim increases the comfort, for the rider, compared to a similar width tyre mounted on a narrow “standard” rim because of the increased air volume in the tyre.
The Tubeless compatible rims by Duke (UST, Tubeless Ready and Notubes), only require some Duke rim tape and a Tubeless-ready valve. They can also be used in a classic clincher set up (tyre & inner tube).
Maximum system weight: 120 kg!
