Sapim Race double butted spokes in silver. Cut to any length between 265 and 310mm

Additional Info

Every spoke comes with a 10p credit towards a nipple. This equates to free Standard 12mm silver brass nipples, just add the nipples you need to the basket and the discount is applied. If required please see our selection of spoke nipples.

All spokes are custom cut in house on our shear and die equipped spoke cutting and threading machine. We currently offer spokes in sizes from 110-310mm cut to any length you require to the nearest mm.  Threads are rolled, not cut, meaning no stress risers are formed, using exactly the same process as a spoke factory.

We recommend using a double butted spoke such as the Sapim Race or DT Swiss Competition for most wheels.  Butted spokes save weight, and greatly increase the fatigue life of a well built wheel.

 

The main benefits of Sapims alloy nipples are of a weight saving nature. Alloy nipples are commonly these are made of the 2000 series aluminium which is comparatively weak. They can deform during the build, they can corrode with the elements and seize up to prevent re-truing. Sapim’s alloy nipples are made out of 7075 aluminium which is stronger and more fatigue resistent. It also has a special anodized coating which resists corrosion. The new coating also means that these nipples require no lubrication. They are squeal free during the build. They also retain the weight saving advantages over brass. Sapim are confident that their alloy nipples will actually out-last their brass versions as they held up better to salt water tests. Sapim alloy nipples can also come in different colours if you wish; green, gold, purple, black, blue, red and silver.
