Type of spokes...

Are DT revolution spokes good for disc brakes wheels (not too weak)? 2.0/1.5/2.0
or maybe DT competition are better (2.0/1.8/2.0)?
What do you think?

my type of riding: rather long rides 50 to 100 miles,
i am rather light 160pounds, not aggresive type of riding, not that fast on downhills, terrain - hills + little of real mountains

Thanks for your response

and one more question... what is this little black ball on the envelope, on the left side of post screen?

DTSwiss Revolution, Competition and Champion will are work. As a matter of fact, ALL DT spokes are good as well as WheelSmith. As long as the wheel is built right you should not have any problems.

Thanks for response.
I asked the question because I was affraid that DT revolution spokes (very slim) might not be strong enough for the disc brakes.
but as you said they will work - it will mean lighter wheels
