Best suited to wheels where the rider is 75kg or less. For experienced wheel builders.
Best for: Non-disk brakes wheels and weight-saving builds with higher spoke counts or lower-spoke builds for lighter riders.
The Sapim Laser is a great spoke for lighter riders of around 75kg or less. It is reasonably priced and offers good bump absorption due to its butted design.
Building with Lasers should only be undertaken by experienced wheel builders and the middle section of the spoke needs particular care. You may have to use pliers to hold the spoke in order to prevent it from winding up.
The Sapim Laser is available in 1mm increments from 210mm to 310mm.
