DUKE rim 28" Baccara X 42 SLR2 UD carbon asymmetric
Of course, Duke has its class leader in the racing bike and gravel area in its range this season as well. Visually and haptically, but also with the technical data, this rim does not need to hide from the competition.
With the X series, the French are primarily targeting comfort-conscious long-distance cyclists. Thanks to the enormous inner width of 23 mm, even large-volume tires get their optimal shape, filtering out impacts from the ground better and providing more grip. The rim height of 42 mm enables a very stiff wheel and at the same time very good aerodynamic values due to the special rim profile.
Thanks to the SLS2 manufacturing technology developed by Duke, the weight is reduced by around 10% compared to its predecessor, while at the same time increasing durability and stability. Here, too, post-processing or painting after production is not necessary. The use of high-modulus carbon fibers also improves the inherent damping, which in turn has a positive effect on driving comfort. The modified structure also enables unrestricted tubeless use.
The rims are provided with 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.
