DT Swiss RWS Thru Axle

DT Swiss RWS Thru Axle

As one of the strongest wheel mounting systems on the market, the RWS (Ratchet Wheel-mounting System) Thru bolt is the perfect way to add some muscle and solidify the rear end of your rig. DT Swiss’s RWS tightens skewers with turns rather than using a cam, providing up to 50% more clamping force than conventional quick releases. Additionally, a multi-position lever with a red alloy release button allows lever angle/ clocking after tightening. Come s in 12 x 142mm Thru-axle, and also 15x100mm for the Salsa Firestarter

Features:

  • Ratchet Wheel-mounting System (RWS), 100% Swiss made
  • AL 7075 axle and Alloy lever
  • Safe and easy to use: tighten up the system by turning the lever clockwise by hand as firm as possible (min. 15 Nm hand force)
  • Up to 50% more clamping force than standard quick releases
  • Lever can be rotated into an ideal position after tightening
  • 12x1.0mm thread pitch
  • Axle Types: 12 x 142mm Thru-axle, 15x100mm for Firestarter
  • Claimed weight: 65g

Works Great!
The RWS skewer works great and the adjustable lever means I can position it so it's out of the way of unsuspecting rocks and roots.

Does the job well as it should
DT Swiss makes quality goods, and this thru axle is no different. I really like how once you have it tightened, you can rotate the lever into an optimal position.

Is this Thru -axle compatible with the Giant Drop out kit and would it work with my 2016 Giant Trance 2 to convert from QR to 12x142?
Thanks.

Please can anyone let me know if this will just replace a rockshox maxle 12mm axle from a 2016 kona hei hei trail dl.

Will this Axle work as a replacement for the GT Grade front hub. DT Swiss 240 Hub on Stans Grail wheels?
Charles j on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You need to follow the fork's threading and spec not the type of hub you ride. All 15mm hubs work on all 15mm axles provided the stanchion to stanchion spacing of the fork matches the hub ( I.e. boost at 110mm or standard 100mm). However, the threading pitch of the thru-axle and locking mechanism are proprietary and thus you need to match the right spec of thru axle to your fork and rear dropouts. So to answer your question, this axle will probably not work unless you ride dt Swiss forks or your fork is specifically designed for this axle pitch (i.e salsa cromoto grand uses a rockshox maxle)
Would this fit a 12x148 boost hub?
Trevor on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it is for a standard 12x142 spaced hub. You want a different SKU.
Does this axle have a12x1.5 thread pitch?
trent on Jan 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello, I purchased this part for my 2015 Pivot Mach 6. The stated thread pitch for the Pivot is 12x1.125
The part fit good on my Bike and after almost a year, had no problem. Hope this helps.
What is the over all length?
thanks!
Marvin on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Over all length is approximately 7.5" or 190.5mm with a shaft length of approximately 6.5" or 167mm.

I need a 135x 12 mm thru axle. Can only seem to find 142 x 12. Think this 142 x 12 would work?
