nipples

Stronger, Lighter, BETTER!

Normal brass spoke nipples contribute .25 lbs of rotational weight to your bike. Rotational weight counts for twice as much as dead weight. Aluminum alloy spoke nipples have a tendency to corrode, deform, and fail. Titanium is half the weight of steel and twice as strong as aluminum! Titanium is also extremely corrosion resistant... which means these are the best nipples you will ever buy.

FAQs

What is the advantage of Ti nipples?

Titanium combines the weight savings of aluminum alloy nipples with the strength and durability of brass nipples. Titanium is also known for its extreme resistance to corrosion and/or oxidization (aka: rust). Thus, our slogan: "Lighter, stronger, BETTER!"

Who should use Ti Nipples?

Here's just a few examples of where Ti Nipples are a good choice:

How do I explain to my wife/friends/mother/dog that I spent so much on nipples?

Maybe something like this: "Nice wheels are expensive. Since I'm going to the trouble of building a custom wheelset, I might as well end up with something AWESOME, instead of just mediocre. Plus, a wheel built with Ti Nipples can outlast any number of other wheels, which means it will save me the cost of many future wheelsets."

Are these nipples the right size?

Our Ti Nipples are 14 gauge, which is the standard for modern adult road and moutain bikes.

Will I need special tools to true/build my wheels?

No. Ti Nipples do not require any proprietary tools besides a standard spoke wrench.

Can I reuse Ti Nipples?

Yes!
