Sapim Aluminum Polyax Nipples

Sapim Aluminum Polyax Nipples

Sapim's original Polyax nipples have a rounded profile, which allows up to 9 degrees of adjustment for better spoke seating. Improved seating angle increases spoke life and overall wheel durability.

Polyax nipples are ideally suited for wheels with deep cross sections or tight spoke seats as they prevent problems arising from misalignment. Standard spoke nipples have a tendency to straighten themselves away from the direction of the spoke, but the rounded design of the Polyax nipple head reduces the stresses produced by axial and lateral forces inherent in wheels with low spoke counts. Polyax nipples realign themselves within a rim hole up to 9 degrees in the radial direction and 6 degrees in the axial direction.

Aluminum nipples have about one-third the mass of a brass spoke nipple and save on the overall weight of a wheelset. However, alloy nipples are not recommended in wet or salty riding conditions due to corrosion potential.

You will want to use the 0.127" or 3.23mm spoke wrench. These are typical of most Wheelbuilder, DT Swiss and Sapim nipples.
