PILLAR RACING SPOKE spoke Wing 20 Aero knife spoke rainbow J-Bend 268 mm
Pillar Racing Spoke has been a world leader in spoke design for over 30 years and holds countless patents on the technologies and products that have been developed over the years. With specialized manufacturing facilities in Taiwan closely linked to its own R&D facilities, Pillar Spoke is today the spokes and nipples of choice for the most reputable manufacturers in the bicycle industry because the products meet the highest industry standards.
On wheels with brake discs, the braking force is generated at the hub and transmitted to the rim via the spokes. So basically from the inside out of the wheel. As rotation takes place, the braking force is converted into torque, which is transmitted from the hub to the rim via the spokes. This is why so many disc brake wheels, including aero rim wheels, feature round spokes. Because light aero spokes with a flattened middle part are too thin and too flexible to be able to absorb these torque loads sufficiently!
The Wing Spoke made of cold-drawn Fagersta T302+ stainless steel (Sweden Steel) elegantly solves this problem by using its elliptical shape to take advantage of the flat, light and aerodynamically more favorable but weak aero spoke and the stronger, but less aerodynamic and heavy classic round spoke pulls. As a result, it has the diameter required for torque transmission and at the same time favorable and superior aerodynamic properties with low weight!
