Lightweight Titanium Spokes by Pillar

Sha Dar Accessories’ brand Pillar, from Taiwan, has introduced the latest standard in lightweight titanium spokes. The newly patented PST X-Tra Lite is made according to Advantage Pillar patented cold forge technology.

This results in a spoke that is super lightweight – up to 60% less than stainless steel. Additionally, Pillar has developed a new way of colourizing the spokes called “ceramic nanometer ti-plating.” This process hardly puts any weight on the spokes.

The PST X-Tra Lite is available in anodize multi-colour or natural ti-colour. Pillar has its own specialist manufacturing operations in Taiwan, coupled to the latest R&D facilities. Currently the production runs well in excess of 1.5 million sets a month.
