Rated 5 out of 5 by NotTall Excellent, no nonsense skewer
These hope skewers have a good strong feel. The adjuster nut is a pleasure to turn even with full finger gloves and mud. The QR is simple strong and sturdy. These are definitely worth the extra cost and should last a lifetime.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Disappointing
Had a wheelset made up with a nice Hope hub.... thought I would also get the matching Hope skewer. Unfortunatley, from day 1 I found this very tricky t to get the adjustment right. It was suuuuch a fine line between it being too tight to close and too loose.... the proverbial bee's d. I persevered for a few months thinking it might bed in after a while but it didn't. Finally decided enough was enough when my wheel was a bit wobbly on a ride and I found the skewer was loose. Just too risky. Have reverted back to the old XT Shimano skewer which has the normal adjustment you would expect. Love the Hope hub, but in my case, the skewer was a waste of money sadly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great!
They look the mutts nuts, and have a firm grip of the dropouts :)
Installing them for a friend and the little notch gives more grip than the old bulge at the top on last years!
Another quality hope part :)
