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.

Good from a security point,saves your QR front wheel going wheelies on its own. Look good and secure fit too. Get XL size if your front dropout is slightly wider than the usual 100mm. Not a weight weener so the weight isn't a factor for me.

I bought these in black for added security over my Halo Porkies XL skewers. Their a bit lighter without the camlock mechanism and are finished to a high standard. Nearly a year after buying them I've managed to bend the rear - but I also ruined my swingarm, rear hanger, de-raileur and rear disc so given that they bent by approximately 1 - 2mm I'd say they're well worth the price! As mentioned in previous reviews they come a little too long - they're the XL set for wider frame dropouts so cut them down and they'll look perfect! Rather that than have them too short.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Tightened the correct amount, after maybe 3-4 times removing/replacing rear wheel skewer snapped, front is still working but have replaced as I dont trust, sad as I have a rear halo sas pro wheel which is faultless

For £8.99, you can't complain. However, i had these for 18 months, and the thread on my rear one pulled today and now the rear one is useless. I would stick to conventional QR skewers next time

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous So far so good. Front skewers is slightly longer than a 100mm fork but it works well. At least the nut will not fall off to get the wheel out. Hold the wheels as tight as you want it.

Not a lot to say about these as they are essentially an extra-long socket cap bolt with some nice washers. Strong, secure, cheap, relatively lightweight and a heck of a lot neater looking on the bike than standard QRs. Only thing to watch is make sure you get these XL version if you have a frame with thick dropouts (like a lot of aluminium frames) as the normal version is a bit shorter. Mine have survived a proper battering for a few years now with only a few cosmetic scuffs and dings on the endcaps to show for it.
