Title: Spinergy Spox

These never really caught on, though I see they endure in wheelchair world.
Why not? Did they come up short on performance, or were they undone by conservatism?

They are quite thick compared to wire spokes, so I'd suspect that you lose more on aerodynamics than you gain on the lower weight
