It is of the utmost importance to us here at DUKE to design and develop the best possible products for you. To achieve this, we test all our wheels in France in a dedicated laboratory. Prototypes, pre-production models and series rims are fully tested and pushed to their absolute limits.
Every wheel and hub model is rigorously tested using a series of methods to ensure that they comply with our exacting standards before being released for general sale. Resistance to heat and intense braking for carbon rims, resistance to impacts and to torsional forces are also integrated into the testing programme. We are NOT satisfied just to reach the minimum required standards, we want to go further, much further.
