What drive side tension should I be aiming for on an ENVE SES 4.5 with CX Rays? I have a DT Tensio meter with charts for DT spokes; what spoke would be the closest equivalent to CX Ray? Is it DT Aerolite?
Pegoretti
Colnago
Cervelo
Campagnolo

    What you want is this calibration chart for Sapim spokes on DT Tensio, I have used it in the past and it works very well

    Thanks Paulo that's exactly what I need. Am I correct in assuming that on the 1177 kn row that they mean .68 mm deflection?

    Do you know if this calibration chart is for the original DT Tensio or the newer Tensio 2 (a given deflection equates to a different tension depending on which model it is). A friend has offered to loan me his Tensio (original model) to use on a wheel build with CX-Rays.

    Tensio 2
