The Best Partner for Sensational XL Rides
With its Heavy Duty (HD) construction, the DUKE Fury Star aluminium rim trimmed for Enduro racing is unbeatable in terms of grip and steering precision. On demanding Trails, it excels not only with quick response, but also with the necessary power when it counts.
TOUGH AND LIGHTWEIGHT. Made from a durable and lightweight Dynamal aluminium alloy, this Enduro and Downhill focused rim is perfect for racing in rough terrain. The large 28.5 mm inner width not only allows for a larger air volume, but also increases efficiency, comfort and grip in corners. The result is both excellent ride and bounce.
OFFSET DESIGN WITHOUT HOOKS. The asymmetric profile with 2.4 mm offset increases the lateral stiffness of the rim without adding weight. The Hookless design also benefits lateral stiffness. Compared to a standard hooked rim, the hookless design also offers greater durability and impact resistance.
IDEAL RIM/TIRE COMBO. The best possible tyre/rim combination is achieved when a relatively narrow tyre is mounted on a wide rim. A wide tyre floats from side to side on a narrow rim without support. Using a wide rim and a narrow tyre reduces tyre flutter on changing surfaces and improves bike control accordingly.

Heavy Duty (HD) Building Concept | To achieve a high level of resistance, the Heavy Duty design combines a targeted choice of materials with an optimal rim geometry. Thanks to the interaction of high-strength carbon or aluminium with the offset construction, DUKE HD rims absorb most shocks and impacts, making them perfect for any type of terrain.
DUKE Original Profile | In 2 words, Duke Technology. DUKE is proprietor of the manufacturing tools and processes for its alloy rims and of the moulds for its carbon models. This enables them to offer you some of the most technically-advanced rims with a wider profile, offset and the result of many years of experience.
Tubeless Ready | DUKE's 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).
Asymmetric Design (Offset) | By offsetting, the wheel’s lateral strength and its stability can be increased without adding weight. Rim drillings are off-centre to optimise bracing angles for a stronger, more rigid wheel. In addition, an offset improves the balance between of the spoke tension between the drive and non-drive side as well as durability over the long-term.
Antiburp System | The "Burp-Free" system holds the tyre bead securely in position regardless of tyre pressure and ground conditions. This prevents the tyre from coming off the rim even at maximum speed. As the tyre is prevented from being pushed sideways towards the centre of the rim, there is no risk of sudden air loss even when cornering.
