Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good idea.. Excellent quality, definitely more solid than normal QR.... 10 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by good equipment!! I knew and used many QR,I am satisfied one of them, the function that was hard to relax was particularly splendid. 18 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by works perfect Super tight, I use it on a belt drive Rohloff and wanted something with no chance of slippage. Works perfect. Bizarre that this is made here en Suisse but i couldnt find it in any local shops, I even emailed DTSwiss and had no response. Boo for local Geneve bike shops and having to order my Swiss product from England but it sure did show up quickly! 02 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent piece of equipment This thing just works as its meant to. Locks onto the frame nice and tight. All metal construction means you can fall onto it (as I did on my previous plastic one) and it won't break. Its strong, feels really well made, and you can really crank it tight with ease. 06 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tension control I've got one of these on my rear wheel currently. It was one of just a few with the appropriate length (I've got a trailer connection attached to it, so I need a few mm more length than what is normal). Very easy to tighten (although a bit slower than on a standard QR, as mentioned by another user), and it seems to hold rock solid. If it survives the winter over here, I'll upgrade my review to five stars. 02 October 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by OK rather special but... First I would call this "slow-release" rather than a normal quick one. it's function is different from those in the market like hope, tune, etc...the lever can be be pushed in. instead,it's working like a rotating screw and you could stop when it's firm enough. the lever can be pulled out, for you to get over the fork or rear triangle for more tension. and it works the same way when you need to release the tension. troublesome. but i have to admit, it could produce more tension than normal ones. but it takes 5- 10 times duration and who can stand this during a game? and i do notice it hurts the contact point more- due to its mechanic speciality and you will understand once you have it. the price is not cheap. and the wight is only acceptable. for me i would increase my bydget to buy a tune or popup ones. not recommended unless you are a dt hard core fan 15 June 2012

The 100mm and 135mm measurement refers to the dropout width on the frame/ fork, rather than the overall length of the skewer. Not being a Specialized dealer I have no way to double check, but I believe the BRAIN equipped forks are listed to use a standard QR skewer, so the 100mm Front version of these RWS skewers should be fine.
