DT Alpine III is the DT Swiss 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 grams compared to spokes with a constant diameter. Despite the light centre piece, the DT Alpine III is very durable and is perfectly suited for the big loads occurring in high performance e-Bike or tandem wheels.
