The strongest spoke available, making it suitable for use in extreme off road conditions, tandems & heavily laden bikes. The 13/15/14 guage triple butted spoke is 1.8mm thick in the centre to save weight, 2mm thick at the rim end to use standard size nipples & 2.34mm thick at the hub end where the greatest strength is required. The buttin process adds strength through cold forging of the metal. The Alpine III are made from X5 stainless steel which contains 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.

ConsCosts a bit more.
ProsTough, and overcomes spoke break risk on Hope rear hubs.
With Hope rear hubs, the freewheel hub flange is larger than the opposite flange, causing increased stress on the freewheel side spokes. With 2.6 mm diameter spoke holes, using triple butted spokes with a 2.35 mm diameter on that part in contact with the hub flange helps considerably.

ProsSJS Cycles had exactly what I needed.
Gave 36 254mm DT Swiss spokes to Uptown Bikes in Chicago to rebuilt the rear wheel of my Evelo electric-assist bike and the new spokes look more durable than the originals, a few of which popped. Time will tell.

Can I use this on silverock 7 speed free hub to use on Brompton ?
What you suggest for the length if use on jump hole rims with 14 hole front and 21 hole rear ?
We have no experience/knowledge of that hub to advise; you would need to provide exact measurements for us to calculate spoke lengths.

Are these available in larger pack sizes?

Looking at packs of 36, i.e. for building a complete wheel
We just provide these in packs of 6, so you simply need to purchase multiple packs of 6.

Can I use these with a Rohloff Speedhub? Would you recommend them for such use?
23 May 2018
Hi there,

Yes these will be fine for use with Rohloff, we use Rohloff spokes or Sapim spokes as replacements. - https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/search/?term=rohloff%20spoke
