Sapim Standard Nipple Driver

£39.99 inc. VAT

The Sapim Nipple Driver comes in two lengths, standard or long.

Sapim is not a tool manufacturer but it would like to support its customers by proposing a set of good tools to be used with its spokes and nipples. Therefore we have been trying nearly all different tools in the market and wanted to share with you the best we found. The tools below are mostly made out of existing tools with some slightly different specification. Good tools and good wheel building belong together.

The Sapim Nipple Driver allows you to easily screw nipples onto spokes, with a durable alloy handle for an ergonomic grip. This tool is essential for building wheels, especially in the workshop.
The tip of the driver sits perfectly in the head of the spoke nipple, allowing prescision and efficient wheel building. The nipple driver will disengage from the nipple once it reaches appropriate thread depth allowing quick and easy tension and truing of the wheel.

If you are looking for a Nipple driver for a deep section rim the see the Sapim Nipple Long Driver, this will allow you to use the same technique for rims upto 50mm in depth.

The main benefits of Sapims alloy nipples are of a weight saving nature. Alloy nipples are commonly these are made of the 2000 series aluminium which is comparatively weak. They can deform during the build, they can corrode with the elements and seize up to prevent re-truing. Sapim’s alloy nipples are made out of 7075 aluminium which is stronger and more fatigue resistent. It also has a special anodized coating which resists corrosion. The new coating also means that these nipples require no lubrication. They are squeal free during the build. They also retain the weight saving advantages over brass. Sapim are confident that their alloy nipples will actually out-last their brass versions as they held up better to salt water tests. Sapim alloy nipples can also come in different colours if you wish; green, gold, purple, black, blue, red and silver.
