By starting with a 20-25% larger cross-sectional area, Industry Nine's machined 7075-T651 aluminum is equal in tensile strength to any 14-gauge or 14/15 DB spoke available. In many ways, the Industry Nine spoke is much stronger, because of the removal of all the weak points (known as stress risers) inherent in the design of a traditional hooked steel spoke. First, the spoke has no bend. This is nothing new, but remains an intelligent design. Most steel spokes fail either at the middle of the bend, or the first thread at the nipple end. By eliminating the bend altogether, the spoke is instantly less prone to fatigue stress failure. Second, the root diameter of the Industry Nine one-piece spoke thread is actually larger than the diameter of the length of the spoke. Other spokes fail at the first thread because the root diameter (the bottom of the thread's "V") is actually the smallest diameter of the spoke, just where slight relative motions of the nipple apply additional bending forces. Simply put, a lot of thought went into making these spokes really light and ridiculously strong. These high-end, proprietary spokes can ONLY be used with Industry Nine Torch hubs (2013-current).
