Black Series MTB 15mm front thru-axles save maximum weight while maintaining maximum stiffness. These skewer weigh as little as 42 grams and are manufactured using the highest quality materials and assembled to the most accurate tolerances.
The anodised end cap and cam are manufactured in different grade alloys to limit wear and create a more durable design with a higher clamping force, while the elegant and extremely light QR lever which is CNC machined from 7075 T6 heat-treated aluminium can be closed through 7 degree increments of rotation, ensuring the lever can always be closed in the desired direction. Proven in World Championship competition. Hand made in Germany by Tune.
Quick release skewers are rods which are threaded at one end, with a cam assembly on the other. This combines to make a lever operated cam system. The quick release mechanism was invented in 1927 by Tullio Campagnolo, who was an Italian bicycle racer. He was frustrated when he needed to repair a flat tyre during a race, the weather had turned cold, and his hands were numb, so he could not operate the wingnuts which retained the wheel. He had been well-placed prior to the puncture, but lost valuable time, so decided to develop a quick release skewer system which enables simple wheel removal in seconds.
