The G-Sport Taper Hex Nipples are another incredibly detailed and extremely important touch of greatness from G-Sport. Most people don't think about the little nipples that hold their spokes to the rims, but G-sport George isn't most people. Ordinary aluminium nipples have a bad reputation for rounding off, but G-sports patented Taper-Hex Nipple shape makes it work better than brass.

G-Sport 7075aluminiumm Taper-Hex Nipples work better than traditional brass ones. Since the key slides on and off so easily, they are easier to adjust, and they save an ounce per wheel without any real loss in strength.
The spoke key itself is custom forged and precision wire eroded for a perfect fit. Each pack comes with 50 Taper-Hex Nipples and 1 tool.
