DT Competition
All-purpose 2.0/1.8/2.0 double butted spoke for any wheelset. DT's best selling spoke. The best choice for heavier riders, touring and tough conditions. Minimal wind up during builds makes these a snap to get to optimum high tension.
$1.45
DT Super Competition
Extra-light and super strong. 2.0/1.7/1.8 triple butted, black. All-purpose spoke originally developed as an alternative to Rev's for mountain bikes. This is the lightweight choice for any road wheelsets when durability also matters. No weight limit; paired with stronger rims, these spokes are perfect for heavier riders.
$3.00
