PILLAR RACING SPOKE spoke Wing 20 Aero knife spoke rainbow straight pull 262 mm
Pillar Racing Spoke has been a global leader in spoke development for over 30 years, holding countless patents on the technologies and products developed over the years. With specialized manufacturing facilities in Taiwan closely linked to its own research and development facilities, Pillar Spoke is now the first choice for spokes and nipples from the most renowned manufacturers in the bicycle industry because the products meet the highest industrial 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 to the outside of the wheel. As a rotation takes place, the braking force is converted into a torque that is transferred from the hub to the rim via the spokes. This is the reason why so many disc brake wheels, including wheels with aero rims, are equipped with round spokes. Because light aero spokes with a flattened middle section are too thin and too flexible to be able to adequately absorb these torque loads!
The wing spoke made of cold-drawn Fagersta T302 + stainless steel (Sweden steel) solves this problem in an elegant way by taking advantage of the flat, light and aerodynamically cheaper but weak aero spoke and the stronger, but less aerodynamic and heavy, thanks to its elliptical shape classic round spoke pulls. As a result, it has the diameter necessary for torque transmission and at the same time favorable and superior aerodynamic properties with low weight!
