Ordered some Halo spokes for a wheel rebuild. Spokes arrived without packaging and have an unfamiliar stamping. From my other wheel build I remember Halo having capital "H" stamped on spoke heads. Did Halo change the logo or was I sold wrong spokes?

  • That logo doesn't show up on this page (mrrabbit.net/docs/spokeheads/main.html) of spoke logos, not even as unknown. The page looks like it's a bit out of date, but I can't find a more current reference.

    @ojs, I want to identify the manufacturer. Spoke dimensions are what I have ordered. But I paid for specific brand and I have a suspicion what has been delivered is a cheaper lower quality spoke. Jun 20, 2023 at 22:09

    If in doubt, why not just return them saying they aren't what you ordered then go to a more reputable retailer?

    I recommend emailing Halo about it. They'll likely just tell you what's up. Halo to my awareness is a 100% design/marketing/importing company with no production capacity of their own - that doesn't make their products bad, but it does mean that changing suppliers in a pinch for something like this is a thing that could happen, and maybe the stamping tooling wasn't in the right place at the right time. Or it could just be a new logo. Jun 23, 2023 at 2:31

    @Hursey, that would not be very fair on the retailer if it turns out that Halo just used a different stamp on a batch of spokes. I am genuinely trying to understand what are these spokes. Especially if I come accross them again in the future. I have now sent an email to Halo for clarification Jun 23, 2023 at 8:30

I have received a response from the manufacturer:

Hi Art,

Thank you for your email. We use a few different manufacturers for different > spoke SKU’s. These do look like a stamp from us, so they should be legitimate.

Kind regards,

Mystery solved. These appear to be Halo spokes. Credit to @Nathan Knutson for advising to contact the manufacturer.
