HyperBoost/Smart3 F - HyperBoost/Smart3 R - HyperLefty3

Here you find all the necessary instructions to realize your dream wheels with pre-calculated spoke lengths.

Follow instruction step by step:

1) Measure your "spoke-end diameter"

2) Find your spoke length on table

3) See specific info about spoke type

4) Follow correct lacing patterns

Rim offset:
2-3mm of rim offset influences the spoke length for an average 0.3mm only.
You may neglect it or eventually use that tiny amount just for rounding lengths to the available spoke size.

Maximum spoke tension:

HyperBoost3 F - Refer to manual

HyperBoost3 R - Refer to manual

HyperSmart3 F - Refer to manual

HyperSmart3 R - Refer to manual

HyperLefty3 - Refer to manual

Spoke lacing and tensioning require skills and experience, refer to an expert professional wheel builder for these operations.

"Spoke-End Diameter"

Rim manufacturers offer ERD figures however we warmly recommend to precisely measure the rim+nipple combination.

Basically a correct spoke calculation requires exact "spoke-end diameter" and rim drilling.

Spoke-end diameter depends on your rim internal diameter and nipple type too.

Table A

Note: We list "spoke-end diameters" every 5mm step. If your "spoke-end diameter" measure is in between 2 steps adjust your spoke length consequently.

Steel Spokes
Flanges accept standard spoke heads however we recommend to use only high quality butted spokes.
Butted spokes are lighter and allow a better
spoke aligningment that translates in a reduced stress of the parts
.

Berd spokes
Flanges fit Berd spokes, since edges are well rounded "Tangential Straightpull Inserts" are not necessary.
Adjust Table A lenghts as follows:

Adding "Tangential Straightpull Inserts": use same values on Table A
WITHOUT "Tangential Straightpull Inserts": subtract 2mm from table values.



WARNING: never modify
even slightly the flanges of Extralite hubs not their surface finish.

Lacing: correct lacing patterns with straight-pull spokes must be tangential, exactly as shown below
(and not as the traditional 2 or 3 crossings used for elbow spokes)

Warning: spoke lacing and tensioning require skills and experience, refer to an expert professional wheel builder for these operations.
