DUKE rim 28" Baccara 42 SLR2 Disc UD carbon asymmetric
Light enough to storm to the top, but streamlined enough so you don't fall behind on the flat, that's the best way to characterize the Baccara 42. At just under 420g, it's not quite as light as the Ultra version, but the approved system weight of 125 kg proves that savings have been made on everything, just not on safety. This means that slightly heavier riders can also fly high.
How did the French do this? They took a closer look at the individual elements of the rim and looked for optimization options. In particular, a new resin was used. This not only made it possible to slim down, but also to increase impact resistance at the same time. Thanks to the SLS2 production process, post-processing or painting is not necessary here. The use of highly modular carbon fibers also improves the inherent damping, which in turn has a positive effect on driving comfort. The modified structure enables unrestricted tubeless use and brings measurable aerodynamic advantages.
The rim has an asymmetrical rim profile, which allows a more even angle of the spokes. This optimization of the spoke angle brings with it a multitude of advantages. The tension on both sides can be better balanced, which is beneficial to the durability of the spokes and the entire wheel. The normally directional lateral stiffness is also adjusted so that the impeller becomes more stable.
