Aluminium rims, versatile made for XC hard and Trail, leisure and competition, It is characterized by a good lateral rigidity and a good robustness.DUKE RIMS LUCKY STAR HD 6TERS*
HD 6ter rims have a different width between front and rear, reinforced alloy structure. It is characterized by a good lateral rigidity and a very good solidity for a contained weight.
On its wheels DUKE is the exclusive owner of the production tools.
This model inaugurates a new modern geometry. The wheels are provided with an asymmetrical rim profile (as robust as a symmetrical profile), which requires a more uniform pitch angle of the spokes. This optimization of the spoke angle brings a number of advantages. The spoke tension on both sides can be better matched to one another, what is the shelf life of the spokes and the entire impeller conducive. The normally directional lateral stiffness is also adjusted so that the wheel appear rigid in itself. more (*6TERS = sisters = sœurs).
6TersIn 2019, MTB rims profiles are differentiated as we do not ask the rims the same qualities while riding :
A front wheel must give grip, be light, stiff and handy.
A rear wheel must be more comfortable, tronger and offer more efficiency.
Thus the front and rear wheels have different profiles and lay-ups.
In collaboration with Julien Absalon, the 6TERS front and rear profiles complement each other for a greater efficiency in the trails.
Many of you are aware of different needs because you are already using different section tires at front and rear wheel.
The Duke 6TERS* concept offers a wider front rim than the rear rim for more grip and stiffness. Its weight is optimized for robustness.
The rear profile is reworked with a reduced section to improve increase the impact resistance, the constraints being much more important on the back wheel. (*6TERS = sisters = sœurs)
