DUKE FURY STAR 6TERS
As its name suggests, the Fury Star 6TERS will be your best partner for all those sensation-seeking XL rides! A race-specific Enduro rim. Its new 6TERS profile makes it unbeatable in terms of grip and riding precision. It excels on all the most demanding trails, quick and reactive for sustainable power.
Our partner stores
Rim intended for a disc braking system, not intended for use with brake pads.
The bead of the tyre is held in position irrespective of the tyre pressure and the ground conditions, preventing any risk of the tyre coming off its rim even when giving it full gas in the corners. More.
Asymmetric (Offset) profile
By offsetting, we can increase the wheel’s lateral strength and its stability without adding weight. Rim drillings are off-centre to improve bracing angles for a stronger, more rigid wheel. More.
Wide inner rim
A wider profile rim increases the sensation of comfort, for the rider, compared to a similar width tyre mounted on a narrow “standard” rim because of the increased air volume in the tyre. More.
Our Tubeless compatible rims (UST, Tubeless Ready and Notubes), only require some Duke rim tape and a Tubeless-ready valve. They can also be used in a classic clincher set up (tyre & inner tube).

- LUCKY STAR 6TERS :
Rim for All Mountain and Enduro use. It offers excellent lateral stiffness and a very large internal width to improve the behavior of the tire. The Fury Star 6ters is the Enduro DUKE On its wheels DUKE is the exclusive owner of the production tools.. wheel. Made of a strong, lightweight alloy, this rim is perfect for your races and rugged terrain. Its wide profile facilitates the maintenance of wide tires, perfect for engaging in supports and jumps! It offers excellent lateral stiffness and a very large internal width to improve the behavior of the tire. The DUKE designed, developed, tested in FRANCE. The DUKE rim fury star has an ASYMMETRICAL profile which allows to increase the lateral stiffness of the wheel without gaining weight. this device makes it possible to further balance the tensions of the rays between the two layers and thus guarantees a better durability of the wheel.The rim’s holes are off-center. this makes it possible to close more the umbrella formed by the Spokes. Thus the spokes ensure a better maintenance of the rim and the lateral stiffness of the wheel is increased. The risk of sailing is also decreased. Furthermore,this device makes it possible to further balance the tensions of the rays between the two layers and thus guarantees a better durability of the wheel. The internal width between the hooks. This give more volume to the tire and increase efficiency, comfort and grip in turns. A wide rim also means being able to use thinner and lighter tires while maintaining comfort, The softness and grip provided by a larger volume of air. Larger tires would offer even more volume of air as they are heavy and not very dynamic. The best combination tire / rim is achieved when a tire is finished mounted on a wide rim. The tire becomes larger. This combination also reduces the rolling phenomena of the tire under the rim in the changes of bearings. With a narrow rim and a wide tire, the rim floats from one side to the other of the rim without holding. Using a wide rim and a thin tire, to minimize the floating phenomenon and on the behavior and control of the bike. Inner tube or tubeless assembly
- 6TERS SYSTEM:
In 2019, MTB rims profiles are differentiated as we do not ask the rims the same qualities while riding :
A front wheel must give grip, be light, stiff and handy.
A rear wheel must be more comfortable, stronger and offer more efficiency.
Thus the front and rear wheels have different profiles and lay-ups.
In collaboration with Julien Absalon, the 6TERS front and rear profiles complement each other for a greater efficiency in the trails.
Many of you are aware of different needs because you are already using different section tires at front and rear wheel.
The Duke 6TERS concept offers a wider front rim than the rear rim for more grip and stiffness. Its weight is optimized for robustness.
The rear profile is reworked with a reduced section to improve increase the impact resistance, the constraints being much more important on the back wheel.
