Sapim Laser Spokes

With companies like Zipp, ENVE, and Reynolds consistently using Sapim spokes for their high-end stock wheelsets, it’s no wonder why so many cyclists trust no one but Sapim. Utilizing a proprietary forging process for each spoke, the midsection of the Laser spoke is drastically tapered, resulting in maximum weight savings, while simultaneously greatly increasing fatigue life.

Super smooth, easy to service but watch out for freehub gouging
Posted by Unknown
I've put 1,300 miles on these since January on the greater Boston area's craptastic roads. They provide an incredibly comfortable ride that still feels stiff on steep climbs. The hub is very easy to service. I did have to true the wheel in June, but that is not surprising considering my weight (220 lbs) and the rough road surfaces I am riding. What did surprise me was the deep gouging on the freehub body. This is a typical result of a steel cassette and aluminum freehub but worse than I have seen on similar setups. These are consumable parts and typically do need to be replaced after awhile, I am hoping to find a compatible steel body.
All in all though, I am really happy with the price/quality of this wheelset.
The Price IS Right!

Rolls smoothly, hubs are easy to service, and the rims are nice and stiff, all without breaking the bank. Super great as training wheels OR daily rides and they're black so they'll go with all my bikes!
