The classic lightweight spoke for all round use. The 14/15 gauge double butted spoke is 1.8mm thick in the centre to save weight, but 2mm thick at the end where strength is needed whilst the butting process adds strength through cold forging of the metal. Made from X5 stainless steel, containing chrome for rust resistance & nickel for strength. The rolling of the nipple thread removes no metal from the spoke & preserves the grain of the material, maximising strength. Comes supplied with 12mm DT Swiss brass nipples.

Weight: 382g for 64 x 264mm length spokes i.e. 6g per spoke.
Used by most of the world's best wheel builders.

ConsCan't think of any!
ProsQuality, Build, Reputation, Good availability of lengths
DT Swiss Competition or Sapim Race are the only spokes I would use on an expedition tourer. Bought the six spares with a recent wheel build and would carry on a long and/or remote tour just in case.

Consnone so far
Prosdurable , light, high quality, consistant performance.
Have been using DT Swiss Competition Spokes for years. I started using DT Swiss spokes after the failure of several spokes from another well known brand in a custom wheel I had built by a LBS. I now build my own wheels and haven't had a spoke failure since. I think DT Swiss Competition spokes are a good all round spoke and I have used them in both MTB and Road wheel builds. SJS Cycles have the best range of DT Swiss spokes on the Net .

ConsAn option to buy 32 would be good, I have 4 left over!
ProsAll of the good reviews
I agree with all the previous reviews. I wanted a set for a rear wheel so did not want 36 the same size. I had great difficulty finding the right number of quality spokes on the web. SJS have the goods & nobody else sells them in sixes so I could buy 36 of the right size! I won't waste my time looking elsewhere when I want some more!

ProsAll sizes in small numbers
DT Swiss are, of course, the professionals choice and SJS let you buy them in small numbers and they have all the sizes in 1mm increments which allows you to build perfect wheels! Excellent service as always from SJS.

ProsHigh Quality, Avail in 6's.
I was recommended to SJS by my uncle. Very impressed with price and service.

Spokes are difficult to review but these DT Swiss spokes are the best in my opinion.

Cons14 / 16 might be just as good and lighter
ProsTop reliability and quality
Absolute top quality spokes. More reliable than Sapim (broken at bend). Would like to try 14 / 16 for lighter duty / front wheels, I've never had a spoke smap in the middle.
I like the nipple shape as it seems to bed into the eyelet better than some I have used.
Agree with other positive comments posted.

ProsMultiples of 6...
These are quality spokes. Nuff said about them.
I like SJS selling them in multiples of 6. Makes it easy to buy the correct number when building a wheel, unlike other suppliers who insist on selling them in packs of 10 (at the very least), where you have quite a few 'spares' that you will probably never use!

Dt Swiss spoke and nipple question
29 Dec 2021
I've got a DT Swiss H1900 mullet wheelset and would like to purchase some rear spare spokes and nipples. Vitus advised the following - straight pull front 305mm and 306mm and rear 305mm and 306mm. I have emailed them back questioning the rear measurements as I can't see how the rear is longer. Are they correct? and if so could you let me know which spokes i should order from you? Thanks.
Sadly we cannot advise as we don't sell these wheels, nor do we sell straight-pull spokes.

Rear wheel build for E-Bike conversion with rack mounted battery
19 Oct 2020
I have a front wheel motor with battery in the rear pannier rack. The wheel I'm planning is 36 spoke 3 cross with Ryde Zac 2000 rims and Shimano FH-M475 freehub. I'm planning to use 284mm Double butted spokes on the left and 283mm plain gauge on the right. Will this be OK or should I use plain gauge all round?
Hello, im afraid we cannot advise with regards to Ebike conversions.

I am about to order DT Comp for building pair of wheels. Please can you confirm the lengths I have established are correct. Rims EXAL LX17 rims 32 hole, ERD 601, Shimano HB5800 front and Shimano FH5800 rear. Pattern 3 x. Using 12mm nipples. My calcs is 296mm front, 299mm rear left, 298mm rear right. Thank you
Hi, we normally use an online calculator to determine spoke length when building ourselves which I guess is what you have done. The lengths you suggest are not wildly out of range so are most likely correct. We use the DT and Sapim calculators most of the time and find them accurate for most builds, but I do not have enough information here to try them, and even then we wouldn't know for sure until lacing, tension and truing. Thanks

Hi I am about to place an order for some of your DT competition spokes and wonder if you could verify the length for me: Rim mavic Open Pro 32 hole, Hubs Shimano HB6800 front, Shimano FH 6800 rear. pattern 3 X. My calculation as is stands is front & rear non drive 297mm rear drive 295mm.
Many thanks. Ceri
Hi there,

Assuming you are using the older style rims, we would suggest, 295mm front Left and Right, and 294mm rear Left and 292mm rear Right.

What colour are these?

Hi there,

These are silver spokes.

I've ordered some DT Swiss revolution 298mm spokes from you. Can I swap these for competition 294mm?
