DT-Swiss AeroliteĀ® Description

Based in Switzerland DT-Swiss has been a leader in high end spoke manufacturing for years and is arguably the largest manufacturer in the world. They've maintained this position by always being on the forefront of what custom wheel builders need for performance and durability. This dedication to us as wheel builders and our customers has provided the confidence we need to expand our DT-swiss line up to include products like the 240 hubs and their wide range of spoke offerings.

The Aerolite is DT-Swiss' high performance spoke with the highest strength to weight ration in their lineup. Starting as the same blank that goes on to create the Revolution, a second forging process is then used to shape the characteristic Aerolite blade. According to DT this extra forging process adds a small amount of strength to the spoke. In fact, this is why once the initial raw wire has been extruded DT never "draws" their spokes and uses only forging techniques. The blade itself is a relatively conservative profile allowing the spoke to fit through any hub without any extra drilling or slotting.

Assembly

We recommend that high end wheels built with Aerolite spokes be assembled by an experienced wheelbuilder. We are happy to provide this service, and can provide helpful suggestions in hub and rim selections. Please contact us directly or submit a custom wheel build request here.

While these spokes do not require any special wheel building techniques, the thin bladed section must be supported near the nipple to prevent helical twisting. The best tool for this purpose is the Alchemy Bladed Spoke Holder.
