SpokePrep™ is the ultimate spoke thread compound because it is both a lubricant and a thread lock. How can it do both? When spoke tension is low and there is risk of loosening, SpokePrep “locks” the nipple by maintaining a minimum nipple torque. When spoke tension is high SpokePrep keeps the nipple torque low with Teflon lubrication. SpokePrep is available in two colors so you can prep your spokes and immediately know which side of the wheel they will be used.
