What are the best carbon wheel spokes ?
I have a set of carbon wheels, they are complete carbon units and have sapim spokes at the moment but I fancied a splay myself with them and was looking to see if they could be upgraded for something better ?

    Carbon AND Kevlar - very F1.

    My spokes are carbon and kevlar... of course they're bonded to the rim, so that's a non-starter. When in doubt Sapim CX-Rays are still pretty much the best out there.

    I think I have the sapim cx-ry on mine at the moment, if they are decent I may as well keep them, I just fancied having a play with them really.

    You want to chop those off and sow some Aerolite on those hubs man...

    Perhaps you'd fancy a Madfiber wheelset

    Madfibers are for people who have never heard of Lightweight.

    I've seen them but would not spend that sort of cash on wheels. I think a few hundred is more than enough. Especially at my level.

    the cx-ray are fine, not sure there's anything better you could replace them with anyway

    treat yourself to some lw once you've got nothing else to lose weight on :-)
