For wheels that need to be both strong and light, especially good for MTB wheels.
Best for: XC, CX, MTB, gravel and road wheels with disk brakes.
The Sapim D-Light J-Bend spoke is for builders looking to create strong and light wheels but without the higher price tag of the Sapim CX-Ray. They’re especially well suited to wheels that are built for disc brakes
The Sapim D-Light has a 2mm section at the J-Bend and a thread for strength. It has a thinner 1.65mm middle section which is stiffer and reduces weight over a non-butted spoke and is much better at handling torque. This makes for a lighter, stiffer and longer-lasting spoke.
The Sapim D-Light is available in 2mm increments from 258mm to 300mm.
