My Favorite Spokes
I've been riding these spokes for over two years now and have found them to be super strong and reliable. What originally sold me on them was I noticed that upgrading from relatively standard DT Swiss competition spokes to these costs less than upgrading from DT Swiss 350 hubs to 240s hubs while also saving slightly more weight. Plus the weight savings will be further from the axis of rotation making a more noticeable difference. Another big plus to bladed spokes for home mechanics like myself is they make your wheels easier to build and maintain, since it's very easy to avoid winding them up. If there's room in your budget, I highly recommend these spokes!
