Hi there,

Info about them? The only weight I found was 321g for 64*260mm dubble butted spokes.

Joel,

ACI Alpina is famous Italian spoke and nipple manufacturer. They used to have quite informative website, but it disappeared a few years ago. I have laced a few wheels with straight 2 mm Alpina spokes and had not have a single problem with them on mountain bikes for many thousands of kms. No experience with butted spokes. You can identify them by letter "S" on spokes' heads.

Thanx Bladteth,

Do you know the weight of them.
What are their lightest spokes?

Joel,

All I have seen were straight 2 mm Alpina spokes and their weight is basically the same as DT 2 mm. I am sure they manufactured alu nipples, stainless steel aero and IIRC straight titanium spokes. However, I have no data on their weights.

I have two wheelsets laced with them, the 2mm elliptical spoke.

They are nicely finished, without the distortion in the blade to round section transition that is a common trait of other spokes of their type like the CX-Ray. The section is a true elliptical shape, which probably doesn't make any aerodynamic difference, but does look nicer than a flat blade section, I wonder if it is also better at resisting twisting forces during building?

Overall, I like them, have not had any problems with them, and I'd buy wheels built with them again without hesitation.

Hey Joel,
I am about to have my 360 rims built up by Royal wheels with these spokes and Spada hubs. I am getting some extra, so I will weight them when I get them.
