PolyLight polymer technology for the world's lightest spoke, saves 100 to 200 grams per wheelset. Compatible with most standard hub and rim connections

Berd PolyLight™ spokes are ideal for all cycling disciplines including mountain, gravel, road, and fat bike wheels.

From the Curator:

"These spokes are priced on the high side if you compare them with other spokes on the market. But if you compare the cost-to-weight savings for what you might pay on a frame for example, these would immediately appear like a steal, not to mention this would be rotational weight that we're saving.

We personally love them on a pair of Enve Foundation 45's. This spoke upgrade sheds about 10% of the wheel's overall weight and translates to a huge increase in acceleration.

Apart from weight, there's a very distinct ride quality with the Berd spokes. It dampens the road chatter leaving you feeling noticeably fresher on longer rides. "

TECHNOLOGY
Berd spokes are made from an advanced polymer called ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) that has 12 times the strength-to-weight ratio of steel and floats on water. Berd spokes have an improved fatigue life compared to steel and are impervious to the elements.

Berd spokes use 14 gauge threads to connect to standard nipples the same way metal spokes do. Opposite the threads is a loop, which is pulled through the hub hole and secured with a rod. Berd spokes feature a 1.8mm diameter in the mid-span and are 2.5 grams per spoke.

Berd spokes also damp vibrations much more effectively than steel spokes. This results in a more comfortable, smoother, ride. The graphs below demonstrate that wheels with Berd spokes provide 200% better vibration damping than metal spokes.
Berd spokes work with all J-bend and most straightpull hubs. The spoke is connected to the hub by pulling the loop through the hub hole and inserting a rod into the loop. Once this is done, the spoke cannot pull back through the hub hole.
