Sapim, a Belgian company founded in 1918, has been producing high quality spokes for the better part of a century. Combining their extensive experience and a commitment to innovation, Sapim is able to produce the best quality spokes available today. Sapim's success with providing companies such as Zipp and Shimano with OE spokes, as well as their ongoing support of and feedback from professional racers speaks volumes to their confidence.
Sapim's Laser spokes feature an aggressively butted midsection, which serves the dual purposes of decreasing weight and increasing fatigue life. This midsection is formed with Sapim's proprietary forging process, which "stretches" the spoke to maintain maximum strength. Only slightly heavier than their bladed counterparts, Laser spokes are available at about half the price, making them an excellent choice for lightweight, inexpensive wheel builds.
Sapim Laser spokes are sold in even lengths, but virtually any length can be custom cut in-house. These spokes are sold individually and do not include nipples.
We recommend that high end wheels built with Sapim Laser 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.
