Double-butted Spokes

Swaged spokes. The spokes are thicker at the ends than in the middle.
Like double-butted tubing, these are thinner in the middle where the extra metal is not needed. They are lighter, and funnily enough they are actually stronger than the normal ones (called “straight gauge”).
