Our new Box One Pro Spoke Kit was created w/ one goal in mind; Performance.
Featuring a double-butted 14 gauge spoke (2.0/1.8/2.0mm) our Pro Spoke Kit is lighter & stronger than traditional straight 14 gauge spokes. This is possible by using a spoke that is 14g at the ends but 15g in the middle; this combination makes for an exceptional strength to weight ratio. Additionally included is Lightweight Black Anodized Aluminum Nipples to further reduce rotational weight.
This adds up to a weight savings of nearly 60g per wheel when compared to the same wheel built w/ straight gauge spokes & brass nipples. Less rotating weight means faster acceleration, quicker movement & decreased lap times!!

I have been using double butted spokes for years now. I like the fact that you also save the same weight as titanium spokes but they feel stronger to me, my bike feels lighter and my wallet is heavier
