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.
