Wheels Mfg will be phasing out all spoke & nipple sales in November 2017. This nipple is no longer available.

Sapim has chosen the highest aluminum grade possible (7075 T6) for its nipples, combining light weight, strength and corrosion resistance. The anodized surface treatment provides various color possibilities. Furthermore, Sapim ensures that aluminum nipples receive a special coating that reduce the friction. The Sapim coating is a unique process that applies on the thread and the nipple surface. Friction between both spoke and nipple and rim and nipple are significantly reduced.

Patented Secure Lock Sapim nipple utilizes a locking mechanism that prevents nipples from untightening. Highly precise and accurate machines have specifically been developed to produce this type of locking system. They ensure stable and well defined deformation on the thread. The advantages of this easy locking system are:

  • No loose function while truing the wheel
  • Silent, effective truing with no more squeaks
  • Virtually torsion free spokes
  • High tension wheels without problems
  • No over tight nipples on spoke threads
  • No more oily and dirty wheels
  • Wheels are easier to true
  • 14 gauge
  • Length: 14mm
