ax-lightness quick release
Lightweight quick release skewers have flooded the cycling market in the past few years. Here at Fair Wheel, we carry skewers from no less than ten manufacturers with a multitude of choices in color and applications. The A/X Lightness series of skewers stand at the extreme lightweight end of our product range, and use design features similar to other quick releases in their class. However, they stand out in their utility and simple elegance.
The handle end is slightly longer and wider than on most skewers, allowing for comfortable and secure closure. The attached cam system is built on a standard sphere and dish system which requires no specific alignment of the lever and end cap. This feature eliminates the possibility of inadequate closure or unintentional damage to the cam during normal use, a common problem with other designs. Titanium axles are machined with a reduced taper from the adjustment end for weight reduction, and the axle end is very finely threaded to allow for delicate adjustments in closing strength. Additional weight reduction machining has been applied to the end caps, and the interior of the handle is machined to be completely hollow.
The mountain version of this skewer set feature durable titanium axles on both the front and skewer. This skewer set is designed for cross country or road use only, and carries a rider weight limit of 100 kg.
