Is the Sapim Cx-Super spoke available in black? I can't seem to find it, I can't even find the silver version on sapim's website... But I see it available for order through some online places.

this is the only super spoke they do. any website lidting anytthing else may be mistaken. Spaim do do other spokes for the OEM market like various types of striaght pull spokes which they don't list but are available on special order.

Hi,

Is the Sapim Cx-Super spoke available in black?


It is.

http://www.xx-light-bikes.de/shop/pi1749363135.htm?categoryId=301

this is the only super spoke they do.


No, it is not. Do not rely on Sapim's website, it is often years behind in displaying what they actually manufacture.

While initially designed as a round, non-aero spoke, it is now also available as a flat aero spoke much like a lighter version of the venerable CX-Ray. The j-bend version of it for now....

Ciao, ;)

fdegrove,

thanks for the reply. But the link to xx shows super spoke, not the CX-ray version of the super spoke or called CX-Super.

example: but only available in silver.

Hi,

I suppose they do exist by now but why not ask Adrien at RAR?
Since he strives to build ueberlight wheels he may even be able to sell you some should he carry them.

There's a "Contact" button to the right on the menu bar.

Other than that.... :noidea:

Ciao, ;)
