Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Если вы хотите обеспечить безопасность своих колес, оставляя велосипед где-то без присмотра, то это ваш выбор.
Вопреки другим отзывам, у меня они еще не погнулись. Также нет ни одного намека на то, что ключ, идущий в комплекте, хоть немного зализался или испортился. Нужно выполнять простое требование: до упора вставлять ключ в паз, а также с пеной у рта не затягивать эксцентрики.
Особенно нужно отметить удобство пристегивания велосипеда: раньше у меня был тросик длиной 1.5 метра для того, чтобы пристегнуть им одним оба колеса. Теперь в этом нет необходимости. Достаточно купить U-lock и надежно пристегивать им раму, что я в дальнейшем и собираюсь делать.

These are good and look nice. My advice is: keep carrying your lock because thieves also know how to use allen keys.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous LIght, but...
Pros: Light, and they makes it somewhat harder to steal the wheels. But.
I punctured two days ago on the road, and while replacing the tube I managed to lose the allen key. I discovered this when I got home and wanted to check my tires better for glasses.
I thought this was a big catastrophe. What on earth should I do now? Order a new set (to get the allan key), and not bike while waiting? No, not necessary. All it took was a normal pliers (very much like this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pliers_slip_01CJC.png). Hardly any force was used to unscrew. Luckily I had my old QR which I now use instead.

Decent skewers in my experience. I've not had the problems with the allen key others have reported except losing mine! I contacted Brand-X and they can't or won't help.
I think these are a good shout for bikes where you don't anticipate removing the wheel frequently, e.g. a commuter bike. I wouldn't think they are a good idea for frequent removal for the reasons others have outlined so I won't be using them on my regular off road bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Awesome completeness
First saw these two years ago after a visit from scumbag thief. Now instead of carrying a burden of locks I have all the wheels on my bikes safely locked up with these babies. Absolutely secure as proven by my tourer which survived months across Europe with my expensive looking touring wheel staying with me despite a vicious attack on it in Berlin. If a German thief can't remove it then safe to say these do their job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Two set - both bent!
Seemed like a good idea and seemed to work ok, so I ended up purchasing two sets for two bikes I have. Except after a couple of months, I noticed some problems with my wheels making an odd noise... Taking the skewers out, they had bent! The metal is thinner than the shimano skewers that came with my bikes, and, under pressure (although only road-based commuting pressure I would add) they bend!!! Pretty rubbish!
Also, on a separate note, I got them for the added security... Except the Allen key is critical to getting the wheel off, and it doesn't have a key fob attachment... So if you get a flat away from home, you're screwed, as I also discovered! I now have a set of zefal lock'n'rolls which don't bend at least!!!
