The Spider rim is the lightest alloy clincher rim available.  It is light without compromise to durability and quality by adding variable taper walls and a precision balanced extrusion flow design.  The braking surface walls are machined.  The nipple hole floor is reinforced.  It offers truly outstanding side-on aero drag characteristics. Even with a 19mm depth, the special cross-sectional shape makes it among the most head-on aero wire wheel rims. 

Spider aero nipple tool -- Click to enlarge The optional custom aero nipple configuration requires a non-standard but commonly available Spider aero rim spoke tool.  This tool is a 5mm or 3/16" socket driver with a narrow exterior diameter.  Many shops have this tool for working on Rolf or Campy wheels.  It can be found in high-end hardware stores and we also sell a very nice version.  Or we have one for sale.  Hole options include 6 standard and 6 aero configurations, permitting a variety of front and rear wheel builds. Custom drillings are also available, ask our tech staff. The aero rim version only is sold with custom nipples included.  See configuration options. See pricing.
