 Product Descriptiongo to order page   |   ↑ 


  • Give your wheels a touch of your own design by adding a bit of colour to the spokes. Shocka allows you to pick from various high-quality SAPIM spoke types, colours, lengths and amounts.

  • We don't use heavy low-quality 2.0mm-only spokes but ones from the Belgian company, SAPIM, who are well known for their high-end durable products. Amongst others, you can choose from the D-Light [2.0/1.65/2.0mm rounded], Race [2.0/1.8/2.0mm rounded] or notorious CX-Ray [2.0/2.2x0.9/2.0mm bladed] spokes. This way you won't have to build your awesome wheels with just any old Brand-X spokes.

  • Our coating-method is unique and the result of years of experience, trials and specially-built tools. The outcome is a thin but well-covering and colour-intensive layer, which depending on colour is between 0.1 and 0.25mm thick with very little to no droplet formation behind the spoke head. We are also able to coat spokes with more difficult colour tones such as yellow, light-orange or light-green. The polymer-based powder-particles are melted together using infrared-radiation supplying the coat with much better elasticity, durability, UV- and scratch-resistance when compared with "normal" paint-coating. Another great advantage is the coat doesn't alter the mechanical properties of the spokes itself such as the tensile strength. This remains at, for example, 1,370N/mm2 for the D-Light and 1,600N/mm2 for the CX-Ray type spokes.

 FAQgo to order page   |   ↑ 


  • Q: Ich würde gerne Farbspeichen bestellen, ich verstehe aber nichts. Könntet Ihr Mir helfen?
  • A: Klar, wir sprechen Deutsch. Für die deutsche Version, bitte hier klicken.
  • Q: J'aimerais commander des rayons couleurs mais je ne comprends rien. Pouvez-vous m'aider?
  • A: Oui, nous parlons français. Pour lire la page en français, cliques ici.
  • Q: Do you have other spokes or spoke lengths?
  • A: Yes, we can offer you a wide variety of spokes from SAPIM. If you're looking for Laser, Strong, Leader, Force or CX Sprint or if you need spokes cut to 1mm length-precision, please contact us: spokes@shocka.eu
  • Q: I need another colour. Is that possible?
  • A: For other colours not listed above, please contact us: spokes@shocka.eu
  • Q: Which spoke lengths do I need?
  • A: Unfortunately, we cannot offer you any recommendations or statements from far away. You either have to calculate the lengths yourself, obtain them per trial-&-error or head over to your local bike shop and ask them if they can calculate the needed lengths for you. We ask you to consider that you cannot return or exchange spokes if you ordered the wrong lengths because they are all custom-made. We do offer the alternative of sending us your hub and rim (we will not calculate using manufacturer-specs, we don't trust them. We will proceed by measuring your parts and precisely calculating the spoke lengths you need. This service costs € 30.00 + shipping. It could end up saving you time, effort an money. For our spoke calculation services, please contact us: spokes@shocka.eu
  • Q: Warranty/Guarantee?
  • A: Yes, of course our products are warrantied for processing quality and manufacturing defaults. The quality of our work is very important to us. However, please keep in mind, that if you choose to build the wheels yourself you may void the warranty-agreements for hubs, rims, spokes, nipples and ultimately, your entire bicycle. We do recommend getting your wheels built by a professional wheel-builder or bicycle mechanic.
  • Q: What do I have to be careful of when lacing the spokes?
  • A: The spoke holes of the hubs can be sharp and edged. Pushing them through can scrape and damage the spokes. You should be prudent lacing the spokes into the hole and very careful when bending the spoke head flat against the hub flange. The hub spoke holes should be at least 2.3mm wide (for D-Light & Race) and 2.4mm wide (for CX-Ray). We will send you further helpful tips with your spoke delivery.
  • Q: Is there anything to be mindful of when cleaning the coated spokes?
  • A: Not really. The same care for the spokes is needed as your bike does. This means, please do not use any high pressure water cleaners, no aggressive cleansing solutions and only to use soft sponges.
  • Q: How scratch-resistant is the coat?
  • A: A very good but relative question. Powder-coating does not go inside the material as with anodisation but our polymer-based powder paint is more elastic and sturdy than regular paint. The coat literally holds itself together and engulfs the spoke. We've been using the coated spokes for years on our own and customer mountain bikes; wear or colour deterioration has never been a problem even after years of trail-blazing, jumps, bushes, crashes and washes. However, of course, the colour coat can be damaged and at the spoke crosses, where one spoke goes under the other there may be minimal abrasion but this is hardly noticeable and is of no bother.
  • Q: Why are the prices only valid per colour?
  • A: If you want many different colours, it is definitely possible but, of course, a bit more expensive. Why? Well, every time we switch colours, we have to clean all tools and workspaces before plugging in the next colour. It's for this reason that lower quantities of spokes per colour is more expensive than higher ones. This means your rainbow-coloured wheelset is somewhat expensive ... but possible :)
  • Q: Can I send you spokes to powder-coat?
  • A: In theory, yes. The spokes must be new and silver, not anodised. Please contact us: spokes@shocka.eu
  • Q: Can I send you other things to powder-coat?
  • A: Thank you, but no. We are specialised and cannot promise to offer a satisfying result. There are too many parameters and we have specially-built tools and devises and a particular know-how. Because we do not know if the result will fit our quality demands, we do not wish to offer you trial runs.
  • Q: How do I lace a wheel?
  • A: The best thing to do is to go to your local bike shop and ask them if they would build the wheel(s) with coloured spokes for you.
  • Q: If I have a few coloured spokes, should the other spokes be of the same make and type?
  • A: Yes, we recommend it. The spokes should at least be of same make and type for each side of the wheel, just as the spokes should be of the same lengths on each side. The reason for this is that spokes of different makes and types can vary in the way they relay static and dynamic stress to other parts of the wheel such as hub or rim. If the stress-diagram of a wheel is off center and it is taken out on a ride, the wheel-build may become unstable and spokes start snapping or worse. If you wish, we also offer spokes of same make and type in black or silver per piece. Simply let us know when placing your order.
  • Q: Can you build my wheel?
  • A: To be able to and to be allowed to are two different things. We are a small industrial company, protected under the German Chamber of Industry and the job of bicycle mechanic, wheel-building for end-consumers being part of that job, is protected under the German Chamber of Handicrafts. This is just one of those German bureaucracy things. So, we recommend going to a local bike shop and asking them if they would be willing to lace and build your wheels for you. We do, however, offer our own Shocka wheels for purchase. We have carbon and aluminium MTB and road wheelsets. If you are interested in Shocka wheels, simply contact us: spokes@shocka.eu
  • Q: Why so expensive?
  • A: We get this question from time to time. Actually, our prices are quite affordable. You have to consider the following: a) the basic price of the spoke, we do not add anything to this price b) every single spoke must be cleansed with alcohol and powdered, then a batch at a time is radiated with IR and receives a longer cooling period. Our workstation and tools must be thoroughly cleaned after each colour change. Finally, the resulting product is quality-checked. c) Packaging material is needed. d) Taxes are included. We are a Germany-based company, which means we must pay VAT-, commercial- and corporate income taxes. In the end, we all receive something out of it! The prices go down the more you order. So, the bigger the order, the more you save. Ask us for a quote on 5,000 spokes. We'll gladly make you one and you'll save a lot in the process ;)
  • Q: VAT, MwSt, EU and abroad?
  • A: If you order as a private individual within from Germany or the European Union, we must gather a 19% German sales tax (VAT, MwSt) from you. This has already been included in our listed prices. If you are a non-German EU company with a valid European VAT-Tax number (delivery must be made outside of Germany), we will gladly make the invoice net-priced. If you're ordering as a private individual from outside of the EU (ex. Switzerland, U.S.A., Russia) AND -importantly- you have the products delivered outside of the EU, we can also gladly draw up a net-invoice for you. Please keep in mind, however, that a minimum quantity and a surplus handling charge and/or different shipping costs may apply. Fur further information, please contact us: spokes@shocka.eu
