HEX Skewers - Road Bike
Lightweight, sleek and an ideal upgrade for improved security – as there’s no QR lever.
Popular with Time Trials as drag is reduced with no lever and ideal for fixed and single speed bikes as they hold the axle tighter than a QR.
Anodised alloy end cover and nut with Cr-Mo threaded rod using an Allen type Hex key fitting.
The “Nut” features a steel “no-turn tab”, making doing up these Skewers and releasing them a lot easier than trying to hold the nut from spinning.
Only 72g per pair.
- Good choice if your concerned Quick release equals Quickly gone wheels Review by Nigel
Plenty of info provided on the packing card the skewers are attached to.
e.g) "The Rod should have grease applied along its entire length - especially the threaded section and under the hex head to reduce friction during tightening (to gain maximum power) and also avoid long term corrosion."
The recommend torque for tightening is listed as approximately 7 ft lbs (about 9.5 Nm)
The tabbed nut means you don't have to hold it while you tighten the hex head as well as having a recessed section for a 15mm cone spanner in case it's needed.
The skewer set lists the dropout capacities as follows
Front (100mm); 6.0mm thick
Rear (130mm); 9.0mm thick
Rear (135mm); 6.5mm thick
