Sapim

Founded in 1918 by Mr. Herman Schoonhoven, Sapim has been producing spokes and nipples of the highest quality for over a century!

Sapim are a team of professionals dedicated to bicycle spokes and nipples. Everybody is committed to providing top-notch expertise, experience and advice to customers.

Sapim constantly monitor each step of their production process. They offer a wide range of products made from the very best raw materials only and call on the services of a unique testing facility to test the performance of their products and those of their customers, because wheels are subject to more and more intensive uses, higher pressures and stronger weight requirements. It is without surprise that Sapim is considered by many professionals as the leader in the design and production of spokes and nipple.

Sapim use different grade of steel, different diameters, heads, surfaces and, of course, length.  Producing with care and on highest quality standards Sapim offer the widest range in the market. All Sapim’s spokes are made in the Europe and more specifically in Belgium and France.

What is a spoke? You can define it in different ways: a piece of steel, a wire, a spring or, what we like best, the connection between the hub and the rim.  Being the link between the hub and the rim, the spoke has multiple functions:

  • Carry: spokes carry the weight of the bicycle as well as it load.
  • Absorb: spokes absorb the irregularities of the road and ensure the comfort of the rider.
  • Transmission: spokes transmit acceleration and braking effort of the rider.
