- SL28x-"X"treme light weight high strength uni-directional carbon fibre layup
- OD-1 Carbon Spokes with Nipples - 3.2g ea vs. Sapim CX Ray with alloy nipples - 4.8g ea
- Machine constructed as opposed to manual labour using hand wrap
- Each carbon spoke measures over 500kgf in tensile strength stress test
- Alloy end fittings bond to the carbon spoke remain intact even tested over half of tonne of tensile stress
- Carbon spokes are stiffer and flex little when they are built under tension into a wheelset which translate to better lateral and torque stiffness
- Carbon fibre has natural dampening properties which absorb road buzzs and vibrations which means you can ride longer with them!
- Less spoke count (Front 18 / Rear 21) allows weight savings of over 120g per wheelset.
- Drive side spokes are tensioned over 150kgf
