Sapim CX-Ray spokes are very special. They're butted for strength – which means that the thickness is where it's needed, at either end. So these components can take punishment without failing, at the nipple end
where they meet the rim – or where they connect to the hub in a straight-pull assembly. But in between these two critical points the spoke can be slimmer to save weight. It can also have an aerofoil section to cut through the air; spoked bike wheels are notorious for creating air turbulence, so drag is saved. To make Sapim CX-Ray spokes even more desirable, they equal the light weight of titanium spokes – but with better tensile strength and resistance to fatigue. What's not to like? Sapim spokes are fitted to the world's top professional wheelsets. But they are affordable when purchased from from ICAN's US warehouse, to arrive sooner that the customer inagined. And they come as part of a fine pair of hand-built wheels, weighing only 1425 grammes. Specs include a 50mm deep aero clincher rim in Toray T700 carbon cloth, only 23mm wide for low frontal area, and Standard sealed bearing hubs, all ready for a Shimano system. The wheelsets are guaranteed for two years, and come with a clincher rim strip, brake pads and a pair of skewers. To the unpractised eye they look like a good carbon wheelset. But experts will take note of the 44 secret weapons which give the owner a palpable performance boost: 20 spokes in front and 24 at the rear, made by Sapim.
