Wheelset 29 "XC | Newmen MTB Straightpull 6-hole hubs | Duke aluminum 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 aluminum rims and Newmen hubs should therefore always be shortlisted. The balanced selection of components guarantees high reliability and a long service life.
The Newmen FADE hubs will again find many fans. Again, you do not need to worry about adjusting the axial bearing play. The durable, double-sealed industrial bearings are tension-free and precisely pressed in ex works. This further development has gained a high degree of user friendliness. You can spend the saved time better on your favorite trail.
The design of the freewheel is completely different from the previous model. The goal was low noise. The FADE pawl system came out. 3 pawls engage in a new type of tooth profile. To increase durability, the diameter was increased and the individual pawls were made short and wide. The resulting forces are thus distributed over a large area.
Despite the relatively low weight, safety was not spared. Better to use a little more material in critical areas, such as. For example, at the transition between the brake disc holder and the spoke holder, as a risk of a defect.
The 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.
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!
