Details of the DUKE Lucky Jack SLS3 Ultra
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 tire is held in position irrespective of the tire pressure and the ground conditions, preventing any risk of the tire 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.
A wider profile rim increases the comfort, for the rider, compared to a similar width tire mounted on a narrow “standard” rim because of the increased air volume in the tire.
SLS (Super Light Series)
These rims are 10% lighter than classic version, while maintaining exactly the same strength and stiffness. They manufactured in a sealed atmosphere and requires no retouching at the exit of the mold. No sanding or varnishing, the finish is exceptional!
