Hexagonal head nipples allow for head-side truing in applications where spokes are spaced very close together and hard to access. Sapim self-locking nipples use a mechanical punch to guarantee secure locking regardless of solvents applied to the thread.
Hexagonal head design can handle higher torque without damaging the flats of the nipple.
Brass is an excellent material choice for nipples due to its superior corrosion resistance and high strength. Silver nipples are nickel-plated for a long lasting high quality finish.
We highly recommend the use of brass nipples on wheels intended for daily training, commuter use, e-bikes, or use in wet/corrosive environments.
