Wheelset 29 "XC | Extralite MTB Straightpull 6-hole hubs | Duke carbon rims
intended use : Cross Country XC
All XC racers, who consider light weight to be everything, should take the combination of Duke carbon rims and Extralite hubs into the shortlist. The balanced selection of components guarantees high reliability and a long service life.
The Extralite hubs set standards in all matters. They are light, beautiful, reliable and can be converted to different axle type standards. The design of the hubs is optimized using modern simulation technology and, with the oversized shape, offers an optimal flow of force in the material.
The freewheel is realized via a toothed lock washer, which engages directly in a toothing introduced into the freewheel. In order to safely transmit even the highest forces, all 60 teeth always mesh. This not only results in a noticeably shorter free travel to the frictional connection, but also an incomparable sound. This extremely direct power transmission offers clear advantages, especially when starting hard or in difficult technical terrain. The 2nd generation also has an improved seal between the hub body and the freewheel and is easier to maintain. If the toothing is worn out, it can be replaced and the function restored.
The main advantages of Straightpull hubs are, in addition to the more modern design, non-contact spokes that do not cause any unpleasant noises and spoke heads that cannot work into the spoke flange. If desired, the Straightpull hubs can also be spoked crosswise.
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!
