Standard grades of steel lack the purity required to make a good spoke. That’s why Wheelsmith spokes are produced from a proprietary, ultra-grade steel wire that can support astounding loads. In fact, the straight wire alone can handle over 750 pounds, which is over 150,000 psi. In addition to its astounding tensile strength, our proprietary spoke steel offers a fatigue life that is theoretically infinite.
Every batch of our refined raw material (wire) goes through an extensive quality control process. All Wheelsmith spokes are produced and housed in our Wisconsin-based headquarters, which allows us to ensure reliable, quality outcomes.
