Sapim D-Light double butted spokes
Butted spokes have two major benefits: they are lighter and stronger than straight gauge spokes.
Sapim's D-Light is a super-strong and exceptionally light butted spoke for a variety of purposes, especially in building an exceptionally strong, stiff wheel. The slight 2mm butted end sections are extra short to save more weight without compromising strength. On the threaded end the 2mm diameter section starts just with the thread. The 1.65mm middle section offers a great compromise between the strength of a thicker spoke and the light weight of a thinner spoke.
When adding spokes to a custom wheel build order, please choose 'custom wheel build - we calculate length' from the bottom of the menu list and we will determine the correct length based on the rims, hubs and lacing chosen.

Not sure which length(s) you need?
A very accurate, user-friendly spoke calculator can be found here.
Due to the very short butted ends D-Light spokes cannot be cut and threaded in-house and must be ordered from our supplier as needed, which will add a few days processing time before being shipped.
Make sure you get the right length because spokes are not returnable!
