Best for: First-time builders and for any-and-all builds, including loaded touring and adventure cycling.
The Sapim Race Double-Butted J-Bend spoke is the best choice for any quality wheel build; saving weight and greatly increasing the fatigue life of a well-built wheel. It’s also said to offer better bump absorption over a non-butted spoke.
The Sapim Race is a fantastic spoke that strikes a great balance of weight and strength. It works well on touring, commuter and mountain bikes alike creating a tough and long-lasting wheel that’s also great value.
