The DT Revolution spokes features a 2.0mm-1.5mm-2.0mm (14g-17g-14g) butting for lightweight without sacrificing strength. DT Swiss has engineered proprietary machining methods to make the butting strong and elegant. This is commonly referred as super butting.
We stock most even millimeter sizes 250mm - 300mm as well as 293mm, 295mm and 297mm. We stock the silver (stainless steel) color only. We do not have the DT Revolution spokes in black.
Nipples not included - please order nipples separately.
Please note: You must specify size in millimeter lengths in the comments section of your order.
These are absolutely great spokes. I have been using them for 15 years and have built up 10 different wheels with them, the last of which has roughly 20K miles on it. These are great for front wheels and NDS on the rear--I usually pair them with DT Comp spokes for the rear DS. Care must be taken when bringing these spokes to tension as they twist readily. Just hold on to them so you can feel them windup, over-tighten the nipple a bit, then back down to unwind the spoke. Of course, as with any other spoke, you must stress-relieve the spokes and bring them to tension in stages. I have only broken one of these in the last 10 years--and in two cases, I swapped out the rim while keeping the same spokes.
these are great, and surprisingly strong, spokes. i have them laced on a pair of mavic mr601 hubs and cxp33 rims as radial on the front and rear non-drive, and 3x on the drive side. i built the wheel myself and has about 5000 miles on it. ive only had to true the rear twice, and thats with only a quarter turn on the nipples (yes, im that anal).
