The Sapim D-Light spoke is a double butted spoke. It is drawn into its shape and is characterized by its high stiffness. The spoke has a diameter of 2 mm at the thread and at the storage head and 1.65 mm in the middle. The spoke head and the thread are deliberately designed to be very short in order to keep the rotating mass as low as possible. This has a positive effect on the acceleration and braking characteristics of the wheel. The middle section of the spoke has a diameter of 1.65 mm. This makes the spoke more stable and torsion-resistant than with a 1.5 mm diameter.
With its high strength and light weight it is particularly suitable for MTB, RR, and Cross.
