Another great piece of technology from the road market are forged bladed spokes. High end road bike spokes use a special forging process to create an incredible strength to weight ratio. These spokes are lighter than titanium and are much, much stronger than anything currently used in BMX. While titanium spokes are trick, they do have a fatigue lifespan and will start to break when they get old. These spokes are forged from a special blend of Sandvik T302 steel and do not age like titanium.
