Ti spokes are exceptionally lighter then normal spokes , and if you care about weight , having lighter spokes makes a difference. Things like light rims such as birdcages , ti spokes and hardware like axles , bolts , drivers , and a lightweight tire can make a huge difference in feel due to rotational weight. So combined , your bike will be lighter and will feel lighter as well.

I'm pretty sure ti spokes don't flex well because ti is brittle so you'll end up snapping spokes alot compared to just bending them . Also , never grind with ti hardware / spokes.

Thank you Brayden once again for actually contributing a detailed, relevant answer to the topic, to help those (myself included) who are curious about Titanium Hardware.

Ti is only okay for a few things in my opinion
pegs (for the sparks)
hub guards ( can't argue that it would be awesome to have a ti daily grind infinity guard)
Axle nuts ( not femal bolts)
bar ends ( i have)
stem bolts
and internal axles for female hubs( blue6 ti ratchet axle)

Testimony and apologies





I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

What would Jesus say: I didn't die for you to live like this!

I would never run ti spokes. Too pricey and i already wish my normal spokes were stronger so ti spokes are a no go for me.

Ti is good for spindles and drivers , I wouldn't trust them for spokes unless it was a race bike

Ti just snaps where Stainless Steel bends.

If you are worried about saving wait just ride double butted, save a little weight compared to triple butted.
