You are purchasing Sapim Race spokes, in black with a straight pull.
Sapim’s Race straight pull black Spokes are Sapim’s main butted spokes and are a great do-it-all that offers good strength vs. weight. They’re great for mountain bike wheels, sturdy commuter wheels or any bike that needs to go far whilst taking a bit of abuse.
Double butted spokes are the recommended choice for any quality wheel build, saving weight and greatly increasing the lifespan of a well built wheel. The butting also offers good bump absorption, creating a more comfortable ride.
The Race is the most popular spoke in Sapim’s race and is a great spoke to build with. Builders will find it an easy spoke to build up tension with and should feel less torsion and less elasticity in the spoke over others, such as the Sapim Laser.
Lighter riders (below 75kg) may wish to consider the Sapim Laser.
For the ultimate combination of strength and low weight, we’d recommend the Sapim CX-Ray spoke.
