Dotz Rafting dark – for seas of mud, sand and boulder
Wild waters of the highest difficulty level VI present an almost unconquerable terrain – even for experienced paddlers. It is even more dangerous if the boulders get the upper hand, and there’s no water left to be seen: because then if you really want to go “rafting”, you’ll need a sturdy off-road vehicle fitted with the alloy wheel rims of the same name. With its adventurous, dark style, the extremely tough wheel is the ideal partner for expeditions of all sorts – whether you’re crossing the Sahara or taking a spin around the city.
The Rafting dark rim never fails to impress, with its eight characteristic holes, also because – or maybe simply because – it is confined to the classic 8.0x16 and 8.0x17 off-road dimensions. Instead of tender high-gloss fluff, it impresses with the straight-lined, quality design that goes with real adventure. Thus, the Rafting perfectly matches with tough off-road vehicles and pick-ups – like the Jeep Wrangler, Toyota Hilux or the Mitsubishi L200 – that can easily plough through knee-deep mud or crossing a shallow river when it gets serious. You won’t have to worry about the “beautiful” wheels, as the Rafting dark isn’t only robust, it also possesses amazing self-cleaning properties. And when worst comes to worst, the larger areas can be cleaned with a bucket and sponge in no time at all.
Thanks to the high-quality aluminium and a resilient clear varnish, nearly no hindrance stands a chance of damaging a Rafting dark permanently. And if so, it’ll wear its scars with pride. Scratches actually underline its adventurous character. Along the lines of the motto: “Do you remember that time at the Zambesi?”
