I have a set of Rol Race SL wheels with Sapim CX-Ray spokes. I need to true the wheel. Which spoke wrench fits this? I can't seem to find the information online at Sapim.

A small piece of hardwood with a few brisk strokes of a hacksaw does the job.

Metal tools just make it more likely to take the finish off black spokes.

I use a DT Swiss spoke holder and no problems with wheels I have built with Black spokes.
+1 for the Unior Spoke Tool mentioned by Mike T.

I have a few spoke wrenches. This is my favorite one:

Spoke wrench

I believe this will work for most nipples except the ones on Shimano wheelsets. Those use a larger size.

The DT swiss aero spoke holder works great for holding the spokes while turning the nipples. It holds them right down by the nipple and the spoke wrench fits around the base.

If you can find the old silver version, that one worked great on CX Ray spokes. The newer red and lack version still works, but doesn't fit as perfectly.
