    DT Swiss Aerolite Spokes - Anodized?

    Hi guys,

    I have recently been thinking of building a new set of wheels with either red or white aerolites. However, am a little concerned as to whether they are powder coated or anodized?

    I am afraid that red powdercoated spokes would get chipped very easily compared to anodized ones. (I am gathering the white ones are def painted) Anyone know what the red ones are like, or could post a close up here too please?

    Powdercoating is pretty durable. I have a co-worker who just had a wheel set done with powdercoated spokes several months ago. No chipping yet.

    It's powder coat, which is pretty durable. You can not anodize steel.
