Cross-Center International

Spoke sets for Honda CRF, XR and F

Swedish Motocross specialist Cross-Center International has added to an already extensive range of MX and ADV bike spoke options with new stainless-steel OEM replacement (3.6 mm) and Heavy Duty (4.0 mm) front and rear spoke kits for Honda’s popular CRF 100 and variants.

Manufactured in-house by Cross-Center, all the company’s spokes are made of Swedish stainless material, with all coloured nipples made of aluminium and anodised. “We have a wide range of different spoke nipples, in terms of material choices, such as steel, brass and aluminium in a wide range of size options and surface treatments - such as brass or aluminium only, zinc, nickel plated or anodised,” says owner Torbjörn Bergh.
“All our spokes are made as exact as possible to OEM specifications, and are sold as replacement spokes. Some spokes may have different length, bend or angle but when assembled they will fit the wheel perfectly. “We have tested all the other spokes on the market and know that ours are definitely made from the strongest stainless material available.
“Our steel spoke wire has a tensile strength of 1450 Nm and a yield strength of 1350 Nm and we include nickel plated steel spoke nipples in the price of a spoke or spoke set. Not only is ours the largest assortment of motocross spoke sets in the world, but we also make spokes for off-road, street bikes and vintage bikes.
Cross-Center has over 500 different spoke kits on the shelf and ready to ship at any one time. They also offer natural or anodised colour finished hubs and rims and a big selection of motocross brake discs.  Torbjörn says they are looking for importer/distributors worldwide and that “if we do not have the spokes a distributor or dealer needs, then simple – we make them to order, and they will meet or exceed OE specifications in just the same way all our spokes do”.
