The company we now know as DT Swiss has been drawing steel in Biel for over 350 years and their spokes are still made completely in house in Switzerland to the highest possible standards of quality and workmanshipThe lightest and most aerodynamic spoke available, designed for the highest performance wheelsThe aero section spoke is 2. mm thick at the ends, flattening out to a .9 x 2.3 mm bladed section in the middle to improve aerodynamicsHubs can be laced as normal, so no slotting of the spoke holes is required which can weaken a hub flangeWhereas other brands stretch and weaken their spokes to butt them, DT's unique and closely patented ultrasonic peening process cold forges the spoke, actually strengthening the metal, giving DT's the best strength to weight ratio of any butted spokesMade exclusively from Swedish X5 stainless steel that is custom blended just for DTThe rolling of the nipple thread removes no metal from the spoke and preserves the grain of the material, maximising strength and greatly reducing the likelihood of failure at the threads, a common issue with lower quality spokesFinished in black using an electro-chemical treatment that is durable, and does not weaken the spokesWeight: 278 g for 64 x 264 mm length spokes, 2 mm thread
