Sapim, a Belgian company started in 1918, has been producing high quality spokes for nearly a century. With their extensive history and experience it is easy to see why Sapim has become one of the leading OEM spoke suppliers. Meeting the stringent demands of companies such as Zipp and Shimano is no small task at OE production volume. Through comprehensive research and development and ongoing feedback and support of professional race teams, Sapim’s dedication has established them as one of the premiere spoke manufacturers.
The CX-Sprint is Sapim's performance spoke. It is very similar in construction to the CX-Ray but with a bit more material for added strength and stiffness. With superb tensile strength and a fatigue life three times as long as traditional spokes these are the perfect choice for high durability builds. These spokes hold their own under the world's best athletes; road racers, triathletes, and even downhill racers. Consequently, the CX-Sprint is the go-to spoke for any high-end high-strength wheelset, from low spoke count climbing wheels to ultra-durable, high-strength 32 spoke mountain wheels. These are the strongest and most durable aero profile stainless steel spokes available today. Now available in straight pull designs these spokes offer riders the perfect option when durability is crucial.
Please note that Sapim spokes tend to run about 1mm shorter than listed length. Keep this in mind when selecting which length to purchase. These spokes are sold individually and do not include nipples. Please take extra care with your calculations and measurements as Straight Pull spokes are less forgiving in the build process of minor length errors.
We recommend having your wheels assembled or serviced by an experienced wheelbuilder or bike shop. We are happy to provide this service if needed, and can provide helpful suggestions in hub and rim selections. Please contact us directly here if you have any questions.
