Rated 5 out of 5 by LeGrimpeur **Excellent quality Skewers**
Superb built to last quality skewers from Mavic. Definitely amongst the best on the market. Strong and lightweight. Powerful cam action. Highly recommended.

These are some of the best QR's out there - period.
The clamping mechanism is such that, unlike other skewers out there, you don't need to wind the skewer in so far to get sufficient clamping force to hold the wheel securely in place. As a result they are easier to open to release the wheel.
Never had a rattle in any of the Mavic skewers I've run.
Lightweight, superb quality and finish and great action.

Pivot pin on the closing arm has become loose after around 500 miles rattles like hell and is amplified 10 fold by carbon forks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Pretty good QR skewer
I have totally no idea how the other reviewers of this item could hear any vibration/noise from it. Maybe they didn't close it properly or have faulty item... As to Me, the skewer is quite light, easy-to-use and very safe even if you didn't close it tightly. Would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous I recently bought a 2nd hand giant, with ksyrium elite sl, other than a slight rattle the bike was in good condition. I was coming down a hill and the rattling got louder and to be honest i thought my front wheel was going to fall off. I woudn't advise these skewers to anybody who has an intolerance to rattles.

The gap between the press lever and its mounting keeps making noise while riding. I try to change it to any other QR

I have these skewers holding my Mavic R-Sys wheels on and although they may be on the lighter side they have a small amount of play between the pin and closing arm which reverberates the vibration, This noise seems to only get amplified through to carbon forks and rear stays making for a not to stealthly ride!!!

130mm refers to the internal spacing on the rear hub, not the external. Front QR is 100mm on Road and MTB, Rear is 130mm on Road and 135mm on MTB. Dropouts are commonly around 10mm thick, so overall length of rear axles is usually around 160-180mm on Road and 165-185mm on MTB.
