Does anyone tried the new spoke from cnSPOKE, they previously did the mac424, but now they got a lighter spoke the aero 360.

The spec said a 3.6gr weight for 260mm, i just wondering to see a real weight.

And if someone have build with these, for the moment how the wheel feels and if they get problem with the spokes.


For the moment i have just find one place to buy these, this is on ebay and they came at about 2.20$ per spoke shipping included.

I just purchased some of these I'll be using for a build. The lengths I'll be using are a little longer, but I'll update here with actual weights when I get them. :beerchug:

fwiw I'll be using Kinlin XR300 rims and BHS hubs. I wanted to build on components I am comfortable with, so I can really dig into them when I test them out. :twisted:

I just used some of these in a build. Lengths were 274, 283 and 285mm. Average weight for 44 spokes was 4.1 grams. :?

.5gr over for longer lengths seems reasonable no?

Here's my Aero360s' average weight: 4.03g(272mm),4.08g(274mm),4.26g(269mm). Strangely, the 269mm spokes have longer round sections near elbows(35mm compared to 15mm), thus are heaviest of the three lengths.

I've used these spokes on 38mm carbon rims, since the rims are stiff and I'm light(63kg), I don't feel the spokes make the wheels less strong or stiff. Aero360s are only slightly thinner than Aero424/CX-Ray/Aerolite, so I don't think the performance will be significantly different. The weight saving is only 20~30g for a set of wheels.

I bought the spokes from the Ebay seller in Taiwan.

I got my spokes from the ebay seller as well. He was easy to communicate with, and you can order even and odd spoke lengths (nice, since you are never more than .5mm away from your ideal length). Average spoke weights are above the advertised weight at about 4.15g avg per spoke for both of my wheels, but they are still lower weight than Sapim CX-rays, and at a lower price as well (~$2 usd per spoke). They are a great alternative if you are looking for a light bladed spoke.

I have a couple hundred miles in with these spokes and I have no complaints, They are very easy to build with, and have held up to potholes, gravel, and hard sprinting and climbing. I'm actually thinking about using these spokes for a custom farsport clincher build... :beerchug:

ive used these a fair bit as well as other CN spokes. the 360 always just in front wheels but I am going to start using them on the rear NDS too.

424 is great, and well priced, but the 360 I think is a nicer more aero shape. the shape is smoother, 424s are more a flat bladed spoke with beveled edges almost.

CN/Mac spokes overall are great quality ive found, at least as good as sapim.

The ebay seller you guys are referring to is great too. handling time is a bit annoying but shipping is fast and being able to get any length odd/even is great.
