The round shape of the head of the polyax nipples works like a ball-joint between the rim and the nipple ensuring a better spoke/nipple line.
Polyax nipples are offered in 12, 14, and 16 mm.
Depending on rim we offer 12mm, 14mm and 16mm nipples. Please be aware that you cannot adjust too short spokes with longer nipples.
Most common material for nipples, brass nipples are generally nickel coated to ensure good corrosion resistance. Most wheel building robots can only work with brass nipples. Sapim offer brass nipples in silver and black.
