SKU: N/A Category:

Our preferred nipple is the Sapim Hex-Polyax in 12mm length with 2.0mm threads. Compatible with all spokes sold here. Available in brass and aluminum × silver and black.

The rear 5.5mm hex drive is an intuitive way to build that leaves external tool flats unmarred. At a minimum it’s a second interface that can facilitate repairs in tricky situations. The Polyax design is a semi-spherical profile where the nipple meets the rim. It acts like a ball joint for improved spoke-nipple alignment, which can be further enhanced by pairing with Polyax washers. This nipple is configured with a screwdriver slot to accept a conventional nipple driver. Overall a total package of all the features you want and none you don’t.

Prices in Canadian dollars. When comparing to foreign retailers, be aware credit card conversion from US dollars adds 34.2% and importing means fees on delivery (potentially combined with a queue at the post office). Customs-related delays are increasingly common in the trade war era.
