Titanium Spokes VS Stainless Steel Spokes

We received many emails asking about the weight difference between titanium BMX spokes and our lightweight 304 stainless steel BMX spokes. We have measured a set of 36 titanium spokes which came in at 100.8 grams and a set of 36 stainless steel spokes which came in at 166.8 grams.

So the difference between the two sets is exactly 66 grams as you can see in the pictures below. If you are looking for the lightest possible option we would always recommend titanium but if you want a maintenance free, no hassle solution then our 304 stainless steel spokes are the way to go!
