Pillar Spoke, a specialty manufacturer based in Taiwan, has been producing spokes and nipples for over 30 years. Combining their experience with state-of-the-art research processes and manufacturing techniques, Pillar is able to produce high quality spoke nipples for a wide variety of applications. The DSN series is designed for use on standard bicycle rims with exposed, external nipples. As its name implies, the DSN is equipped with 3.2mm square tool fittings on either end. The addition of an internal tool fitting gives wheelbuilders a better option for lacing and tensioning wheels, and also provides a method for nipple removal if the exposed wrench flats become damaged or destroyed. These premium nipples are manufactured from Pillar's Alloy Pro 7 series aluminum for superior strength and corrosion resistance at a low weight.
Pillar DSN nipples are sold individually and are available in 13 gauge to fit Pillar X-Tra Lite Ti spokes.
