Like other companies we work with, Pillar is an OEM manufacturer and distributor for many high end companies we’ve all heard of for years. Their ability to chose the perfect materials for any given task, coupled with years of experience in the industry makes Pillar a go-to for many industry leading wheel manufacturers and suppliers around the world. Drawing from their industry leading experience, we’re more than happy to offer Pillar spokes to our customers for their custom wheelbuilds.
The Mega Lite SS Rainbow spoke is the among lightest steel spokes available on the market. Being a 2.0mm spoke the Mega-Lites maintain compatibility with the most common nipples on the market, all without sacrificing strength at the spoke head or nipple. Their Stainless Steel compound and manufacturing process results in a spoke with a center section that can safely be drawn to a 1.3mm diameter, compared to 1.5mm (Sapim CX-Ray, DT Swiss Aerolite and Revolution) and 1.4mm (CX-Ray Super). This allows the ends to maintain the 2.0mm diameter and bypassing the compromise of dropping to 1.8mm for its weight savings. The center is then cold forged into a 1.6mm x 0.9mm blade using a similar process to the Sapim CX-Rays and DT Aerolites.
Each spoke is plated in titanium and then anodized to get that unique rainbow hue that’s sure to make your next build pop. The titanium plating does not affect spoke head or spoke thread size. The Mega Lite SS Rainbow spokes are compatible with standard nipples.
