  • Very light Skewers

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    These skewers have a very nice golden Anodized finish.

    The Front Skewer weighs 30gr. the Rear 34gr. My Mavic Road Wheel Skewers each weigh 30 gr. more!

    I believe they were actually made for MTB Hubs, the rear thread is approx 5mm longer than usual. But do fit Road Hubs. Later I will shorten the thread.

    Cons:

    The Springs included are not great quality, I did not use them, instead I used the original Mavic!
    The Locking lever is very short, okay once they are closed, then is not a problem

    OtherThoughts:

    I have not ridden on the road with them yet, I am a little sceptical as to if they might open while out riding. It would be a fiasco if they did. I wonder how long the washer will last under the locking lever, I will just have to wait and see.

    Bottomline:

    They look great, and lightweight. In UK Bike stores one Skewer costs more than these pair, but my guess is also better quality.
