After looking around at various spokes, I think I am going to pull the trigger on some CX-Ray spokes and nipples for my new wheels.

The retail bags of the spokes come with nipples that are described as 'polyax alu 14mm'. Now alu normally is short for alluminum, but the description of Sapim nipples says that Polyax nipples are 'silver coated nickel coated brass'.

So are these nipples alloy or brass? Any one know?

You can buy Polyax in either alloy or brassB2

At least the Thorusa site lists various different nipples under the heading of "Polyax", including brass and alloy.

Thanks, but what type are included in the retail poly bagshudsonite

The retail poly bags have twenty spokes and twenty nipples in the same package. It is not clear if they are brass or alloy?

Any idea?
