Technical developments in the field of wheels require new spokes. A 0.9x2, 2mm, flat knife spoke cannot be used without restriction in disc-braked wheels. A torque is transferred from the hub to the rim during braking and this can only be achieved by material cross section. For most applications, 0.9mm spoke cross section is simply not sufficient and the spoke can be permanently plastic deformed and, in the worst case, break!
This is exactly where the Wing Spoke comes in!
Cross sections from 1,2mm -1,5mm
Weights from 4,3g -5,7g (260mm)
