LOWMASS SPOKES AND NIPPLES


Text from image 

The properties of a wheel’s spokes have an enormous effect on its riding characteristics and long term durability

 
Commonly, spokes are selected to build a wheel down to a competitive price

LOWMASS wheels are hand built in the UK exclusively with SAPIM’s premium spokes and aluminium nipples

CX-RAY aero spokes have been selected for their outstanding strength, incredibly light weight and quality finish

Aero/bladed spokes offer only marginal speed gains for cyclocross use, but build into a more reliable wheel than premium round spokes
Other bladed spokes offer many of the same benefits, with the exception of either higher cost or lower long term durability

Aluminium nipples have been selected to minimise rotational mass, spoke preparation products are used during the build to lubricate and seal spoke & nipple threads for long term maintainability of the wheel

All rims use external nipples, this is particularly important for working on tubular wheels without the need to remove tyres!

Our wheels are build behind the rim using SAPIM double square nipples to make sure we have no build marks visible on our black nipples

Each spoke and nipple weigh 5.6g
