Klaster, any update? Received the spokes?Klaster1 wrote:Finally ordered a set of spokes, the plan is to relace my XC wheelset (Extralite/29mm ID rims), the target weight should be about 1150g.

I just received my Farsports 25mm tubular rims for a new build. I may have to wait to build those wheels until I hear how these spokes work out. I was planning on CX-Rays but these would shave even more weight off an already light disc wheel build.Klaster1 wrote: ↑Wed Apr 04, 2018 1:55 pmThe spokes have arrived. Included are all the tools required for installation and the spokes in a thick box, with two extra. I plan to prepare everything for assembly, then haul the stuff to LBS. Hopefully they won't decline or I won't have to translate the building manual.
Do you happen to know his weight and/or power numbers? I'm closer to the lighter end of things but some bigger guys might be more curious about these spokes if this wheelbuilder is a bigger guy. The write-up has sure piqued my interest in them even though I have 48 CX-Rays sitting next to me for lacing my new wheelset. Thanks for sharing, I guessLeDuke wrote: ↑Thu Apr 12, 2018 9:57 pmGood post by a trusted wheelbuilder I know.

The savings were exactly what I calculated, the previous Pillar 1422 are generally quite light steel spokes after all at ~4.8g. I suppose the 200g saving happen for folks who have more and heavier spokes.
