- lightweight (approx 4.36g per spoke in 260mm lengths);
- available in silver and black;
- uses standard 2.0 (14g) spoke nipples;
- easier to build with than other thin (eg 1.5mm spokes) because bladed nature means you can see spoke wind up and use a bladed spoke holder to prevent it.
- expensive - about 3x the cost of non-aero versions (like DT Swiss Revolutions or Sapim Laser) for no real performance gain when used on a MTB.
