IceToolz spoke nipple tensioner for carbon wheels

IceToolz is a brand that focuses on both the professional and the (better) do-it-yourselfer in the bicycle industry. But the ordinary cyclist also comes into the picture with handy maintenance products and easy-to-use items. IceToolz is a brand where you can find those things that make your hobby as a cyclist or mechanic or as a bicycle craftsman easier.

This nipple spoke tensioner is used on the rim side. The nipples of the carbon wheels are hidden in the rim, which gives a better aerodynamic effect. IceToolz has designed a number of types of nipple spoke tensioners for tightening these nipples. When tightening the nipples, with any nipple spoke tensioner, it is very important to hold the flat spoke. The IceToolz Blade Spoke Catcher (or flat spoke clamp) is used for this. (IceToolz item number 12T4)

Watch this video for the correct use of this nipple spoke tensioner. (A different spoke tensioner is used, but the idea is the same)

Cr-Mo stands for chrome-molybdenum

Cr-Mo is the abbreviation for chrome molybdenum steel. A type of steel that is often used in tool making because Cr-Mo has the properties that make the nipple spoke tensioner impact resistant and rigid. It would be a pity if the force exerted on the nipple spoke tensioner is lost in the bending of the material. Cr-Mo is also widely used in cars, racing cars and motorcycles where the requirements for the material are high.
