Nimble FLY spoke tool
The Nimble FLYTM uses a special inverted nipple hidden in the rim.  This tool allows access to this nipple for wheel building or maintenance.  Please note that Spider also comes in a configuration with hidden nipples that uses a different nipple and custom tool (also see Spider aero tool, and spoke).

Nimble FLY tool for access to inverted hidden nipple

Wheel builders please note the special attention needed.  When inserting tool, rotate to align with nipple head and insert completely to base of nipple. Incomplete insertion may hurt nipple head and make truing difficult. FLY spokes have 110 kg tension (on the highest tensioned spoke).  To avoid instable truing due to wind up of the thin gauge FLY spokes, it is important to hold the spoke while turning the nipple in tension.  If you are having trouble, do not use force, instead contact us, we are happy assist with expert advice.
