The spirit of this board is to compile and organize wheels and tires related discussions.

If a new wheel tech is released, (say for example, TPU tubes, a brand new tire, or a new rim standard), feel free to start the discussion in the popular "Road". Your topic will eventually be moved here!

Another example is

Baccara C 35 45 55 65 88 = LB R35 R45 R55 R65 R88
Baccara C SiSL 36 and 56 = LB AR36 and AR56
World Runner 38 and 50 = WR38 and WR50
World Runner 650b 35 = LB 650b WR35

It makes sense.
I read Duke's "narrative" and they clearly subcontract the rims.
But they claim they are "owner" of the molds.
Their "technology" and QC looks to be focused around wheel building and a few hub models assembly.
Maybe from more than one manufacturer for the rims, or some models are assembled for them by LB.
Is there other brands that claim to have that inside anti blurp "hook" in tubeless rims ?

Yes, there are plenty of models that Duke sell that are not from LB, or perhaps not available from LB as a single wheelset purchase.
