Superior engineering for the strongest, lightest wheel builds
Super hard 7075 aluminum alloy construction, anodized
14g (2.0mm), 14.4mm length, add 2.3 mm to traditional spoke length
Produced by CN Spoke, one of the world's largest spoke manufacturers
Sold in packages of 72
NOTE - Pink nipples have a slight color variation visible when grouped in pkg but it's not noticeable on a wheel
Using a superior passthru head design, QuadDrive nipples improve the strength of traditional alloy nipples significantly.
Based on typical ERD measurements, you'll use spokes 2.3mm longer than normal to allow full penetration into the nipple head & eliminate the common weak point with alloy nipples, where the neck meets the head. You can also simply add 4.6mm to your rim ERD measurement for proper spoke length.
Please see image for a baseline ERD measurement location., some manufacturers measure differently. For example, American Classic measures their ERD based on using these nipples, so the 4.6mm is already calculated in. Rim manufacturers commonly have production variations also, so their stated ERD can be off by several MM's. It's always smart to measure first!
Uses Park SW-0 nipple wrench (black) or Park SW-16 for access from rear thru rim.
Compatible with most any double wall rim with the exception of VERY low profile designs, such as some fatbike rims. Not compatible with single wall rims.
