Wheelset 29 "XC | DT Swiss 240 EXP MTB Straightpull 6-hole hubs | Duke carbon rims
intended use : Cross Country XC
XC racers always want to win and are therefore looking for light yet stable wheels. The combination of Duke carbon rims and DT-Swiss hubs should therefore always be shortlisted. The balanced selection of components guarantees high reliability and a long service life.
Lighter, stiffer, more precise and easier to maintain - these are the strengths of the newly launched DT Swiss 240 hubs. These properties were achieved through the Ratchet EXP technology. With this, the hubs not only manage with fewer components and the associated lower weight and less wear, it also allows the bearing to be positioned significantly further out on the drive side. The larger distance between the bearings results in a higher stiffness of the hub, a lower bearing load and thus a higher durability. The rigidity on the hub body serves to distribute the load more evenly on the spokes. Drive and braking forces are transmitted even better from both spoke flanges to all spokes. One-sided load peaks are prevented, which protects the hub, spokes and rim. The super reliable tooth lock washer freewheel system with its large contact surface and 36 locking points ensures extremely direct and reliable power transmission
The carbon rims from Duke from France stand for low weight and excellent workmanship. The hookless construction is ideal for the use of tubeless systems. Due to the reinforced bead, any breakdowns can be better coped with without causing damage. The fairly flat and wide rims reliably support the tire in every situation, so you don't have a spongy driving feeling even with little air pressure.
The asymmetrical shape enables a more even spoke tension, which further increases the rigidity of the entire wheel.
Wheel construction at R2-Bike
Our wheels are completely assembled by hand by our wheel builders. During the entire construction, it is important that not only the concentricity is correct, but also that the spoke tension is as even as possible. The special care allows us to give a lifelong guarantee against broken spokes, as long as this has not been caused by violence!
You will also receive the following services for our wheels:
A universal impeller bag for all common sizes.
A spare spoke + nipple in all required spoke lengths in order to be able to repair the wheel at short notice even after accidents.
A free initial inspection of the wheel, in which the resulting work is completely free! Only shipping costs are charged.
A crash replacement promise. If your wheel is damaged due to force majeure, we will rebuild your wheel once. We grant 100% discount on all labor costs and only charge the material!
