Sacrificial Rock Rings
Machined from a solid plate of 6061-T6 aluminum, theses rock rings are available in 1/2" or 3/4" thicknesses and offer protection to ward off damage from trail abuse. Included are 18 counter-bored holes designed to protect the fasteners.
The Eklipse 17 wheel features a unique 3/8" wide
interlocking flange with a precision counter-bore that engages perfectly
with the machined underside of the rock ring by means of 18 mounting
points. Much like the fit of a manhole cover, these rings seat snugly
into the wheel and fortify the outer lip. We designed them to be easily
removed in a matter of seconds. The voids visible between fasteners
allow water a path to escape, which helps prevent imbalanced conditions
in cold climates.
