DT Swiss Revolution Spoke 14-17 Gauge
SUMMER 2018: DT is discontinuing the Revolution in black, so few sizes are available. Silver will have LIMITED AVAILABILITY through the end of 2018. We highly recommend you call us during our business hours to confirm available lengths before placing an order. If you have confirmed availability, please specify spoke lengths in the Comments when completing your order. Normally we stock even lengths from 278mm to 298mm.
Founded along a mountain stream that was used to power their original manufacturing, DT Swiss is the world leader in spoke manufacturing. From years of development DT has created a proprietary blend of metal alloys used to build their spokes. Their experience has driven technology and innovation in spokes and it is possible to say that they make the best spokes in the world.
DT Swiss introduced the Revolution spoke for those who are looking for a lighter weight alternative to their Competition spokes. The Revolution spokes are made with a rotary forging process. This process not only forms the final shape and butting of the spoke, but it also compresses the metal eliminating voids while aligning the grain structure of the spoke. This process is essential to make the Revolution spoke as strong as it is and able to hold up to the rigors of cycling. DT Swiss rolls the threads onto their Revolution spokes as well. This process, similar to the forging process, compresses the metal and makes a much stronger thread than if the threads were cut out of the spoke.
We like the Revolution spokes for standard rim brake wheels for a multitude of reasons but most importantly- the ride quality is great. They provide a responsive, yet forgiving ride which is great for long days in the saddle. They also provide a weight similar to the Aerolite with a cost more similar to the Competition. If Lightweight and Ride Quality are two things you are looking for in your next wheel this is the spoke for you. NOT for use with Disc Brake wheels.
