Like the Sapim CX-Ray but a little stiffer and a little heavier.
Best for: Bomb-proof, stiff and high-fatigue mountain bike wheels.
Sapim’s CX-Sprint J-Bend is a stiffer and slightly heavier spoke than the Sapim CX-Ray.
It is built with high-tensile, fatigue-resistant 18/8 stainless steel and the aerodynamic elliptical 2,3/1,2 shape means that it fits in all standard hub holes.
Some professionals build with CX-Sprints on the drive-side and CX-Rays on the non-drive side in order to achieve a more equal stiffness across the wheel.
CX-Sprint spokes do not require slotted holes and are compatible with standard, round spoke holes of 2.4mm and above.
