Wheelsmith™ Spokes

WHEELSMITH™ SPOKES

Santana tandem wheels are built with Wheelsmith stainless steel spokes. Rear 700c wheels get Wheelsmith’s DH-13 butted spokes. These thicker-at-the-bend spokes are 34% stronger, yet just 2% heavier.

WORLD’S BEST WHEEL WARRANTY

Other tandem wheels are guaranteed only against original defects. Santana’s Wheelsmith wheels, built with higher-grade materials and to more-exacting standards, require no preventative maintenance and are guaranteed for a full two years—the longest and best wheel warranty in the bicycle industry—a valuable difference that can provide a free rebuild in the event of fatigued spokes or a cracked rim.
