DUKE Fury Star 6TERS Front Rim 29″
A race-specific enduro and all mountain aluminium rim
As its name suggests, the Duke Fury Star 6TERS will be your best partner for all those sensation-seeking XL rides!
It offers excellent lateral stiffness and an adapted internal width to improve the behavior of the tire.
Its specific 6TERS front profile makes it unbeatable in terms of comfort, grip and tire support. It excels on all the most demanding trails, quick and reactive for sustainable power.
The DUKE Fury Star 6Ters rear rim is 3.3mm wider and 2mm taller compared to the rear version. It has an asymmetrical profile (2.7mm offset), which makes it possible to maintain the lateral stiffness and durability of the wheel without gaining too much weight.
From bead to bead it offers a width of 31.8mm. This gives more volume to the tyre for improved comfort, tire support and cornering grip. A wide rim also means you can use finer and lighter tyres.

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 wider front rim than the rear rim for more grip at the front and rear stiffness. Low weight and high comfort are preferred at the front instead of strength.
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: 130 kg!
