Cool design
On my other bikes which have a rear 10mm thru-axle hubs either use the nutted or flip-QR lever.

So I had a difficult time understanding how this design work when I saw it online. I thought it would make more sense when it was in my hand

The price was reasonable and I figure if it didn't work then I'd just send it back.

When it arrived it still didn't click with me for some reason. It wasn't until I got it on the bike and then the design made complete sense to me! I don't know why I had such a hard time grasping the concept. I suspect because DT Swiss was calling it a QR and to me QR has always been associated with a flip lever.

I love the design and was first concerned that the lever/ratchet would catch on brush or possible even snap (with a flip-QR you it pretty much tucks in closer to the frame). But the design of the ratchet system allows you to position lever so that it's *protected*.

So far this axle hasn't failed on me. It grips tight and feels solid. I will probably buy another just to have as a spare.

The best skewer for a Q/R to thru axle conversion
Love the ratcheting system and way you pull back the handle and relocate it to wherever you want once it is tightened.

Adds Noticable Stiffness
Got these front and rear to replace QRs on Stan's Arch 29 wheels. Noticed a difference cornering and descending. I need to make fewer mid-turn input adjustments, and the bike feels a bit more solid holding a line on descents. It's not a huge difference, but a real one I feel from the saddle. Biggest benefit is the old QR would come loose - even once in a race - and these I don't have to worry about that, ever.

RWS
I use 10*135mm & 9*100mm RWS skewers with Hope hubs on my ridgid bikes. These thru bolts are light, easy to use and hold the wheel much tighter than a QR. As a clyde I notice a lot less flex compared to standard QR too.

I have a Deity Cryptkeeper with horizontal dropout. 135x10 hub spacing. Would this work rather than a simple bolt on axle?
Jeb W on Mar 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it would work. The DT axle acts the same as a quick release but the axle diameter is 10mm in diameter as opposed to a standard quick release axle diameter. It's not threaded on the end of the axle like a Maxle, it has a standard knurled nut. Be careful not to over torque it when tightening the lever as I did and snapped it off.
hi will this fit in a Crank Brothers Cobalt 3 27.5" MTB Wheelset with a 10x135mm rear 9mm front?
Rean on Mar 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should fit, that is what your hub specs are...try it.
Can I use this on a Specialized 29er HI-Lo hub that came with my 2014 stumpjumper HT with 135mm QR rear end?
