DUKE Fury Star 6TERS Rear 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 rear profile makes it unbeatable in terms of strength, durability, grip and efficiently power transmission. It excels on all the most demanding trails, quick and reactive for sustainable power.
The 28.5mm internally wide DUKE Fury Star 6Ters rear rim is 3.3mm narrower and 2mm smaller compared to the front version. It has an asymmetrical profile (2.4mm 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.

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: 130 kg!
