Type: Wheel & Wheel Components
DT Alpine III is the spoke with the lowest weight in relation to its stability. This is accomplished through a complex production process. Starting with a spoke of 2.34 mm, the diameter is reduced at the thread to 2 mm and to 1.8 mm in the middle section during the cold forging process. This allows weight savings of 173g (per 64 spokes) when compared to spokes with a constant 2.34mm diameter. Despite the light center piece, DT Alpine III is very durable and is perfectly suited for the big loads occurring in high performance e-bike or tandem wheels.
