DT alpine III®

Bicycle spokes

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 173 g compared to spokes with a constant diameter. Despite the light centre piece, DT alpine III® is very durable and is perfectly suited for the big loads occurring in high performance e-bike or tandem wheels.

Weight: 418 g

Functions Spokes

  • E-Bike
    The extra power of E-bikes asks for extra strong parts, this product is ideal for E-Bikes.
  • Triple butted
    These spokes have three different diameters. Thread and centre piece of the spoke are butted during the cold forging process. The thread diameter becomes somewhat smaller than the diameter on the head and the centre piece of the spoke has the smallest diameter. 3-d spokes are adjusted to the forces applied to different parts of the spoke, to achieve a weight reduction while maintaining stability.
