Ideal for fixed and single speed bikes as they hold the axle tighter than a QR. Anodised Alloy end cover and nut with Cr-Mo threaded rod using an Allen type Hex key fitting. Lightweight, sleek and an ideal upgrade for improved security – as there’s no QR lever. The “Nut” features a steel Halo “no-turn tab”, making doing up these Skewers and releasing them a lot easier than trying to hold the nut from spinning at the time.

Steel "No-Turn" tabbed nut.
Serrated alloy frame grip surfaces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by helman A good product with scope for improvement
I found these skewers to be easy to use and corrosion resistant. The anodising is of good quality. My main suggestions for improvement would be to;
1) use a unique security type hex such as a torx key.
2) provide a small hex/torx key which can be attached to one's key chain. Personally I heated up a standard 5mm allen key and worked the long side of it into a loop so I could do this myself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by joss its made of butter
first day i put this on my bike it held tight for a few hours of light riding ( small gap ups and drops no bigger than a couple foot) then it came lose so tightened it back up and the front snapped be for it was completly secure, then two days later the rear skewer became lose and the same again. the skewer sheered be for it was tight enough to hold the wheel in place securley

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack54 They do exactly what they say they do
I've got them on my trials bike and so far they haven't bent or snapped and they've kept the wheel in position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nignod Good choice if your concerned Quick release equals Quickly gone wheels
Well at least a deterrent anyway. They do after all only take a 5mm hex driver to undo. They are light weighing in on my scales about 67g for the pair. Appear to be well made although I haven't had the wheels on and off much yet to attest to their durability.
Plenty of info provided on the packing card the skewers are attached to.
e.g) "The Rod should have grease applied along its entire length - especially the threaded section and under the hex head to reduce friction during tightening (to gain maximum power) and also avoid long term corrosion."
The recommend torque for tightening is listed as approximately 7 ft lbs (about 9.5 Nm)
The tabbed nut means you don't have to hold it while you tighten the hex head as well as having a recessed section for a 15mm cone spanner in case it's needed.
The standard set lists the dropout capacities as follows (from skewer packing card )
Front (100mm); 6.0mm thick
Rear (130mm); 9.0mm thick
Rear (135mm); 6.5mm thick

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous very fragile
Bought these to look better on my single speed mtb worked fine at first then on tightening up for about 3rd time bolt snapped and sent nut flying across garage took 15mins just to find it,gone back to shimano QR's never snapped one yet in conclusion look good but way too fragile watch how you tighten them will not be recommending them or buying any more.
