Rated 1 out of 5 by OrangeBandy It's not getting a third chance
I've snapped two of these on my Orange in the last year. The first time it was covered on warranty, but that didn't help me get back into the race. I managed to snap the second at Bike Park Wales, and as Rockshox will not give me another replacement, I won't be getting another.

Rated 3 out of 5 by danyboy it's ok but way too expensive!!
i have this on a mongoose, and its always been a pain in the butt. i mean i first knew it was gonna cost so much when the hanger snapped in half and it cost me 30 quid which is insane and the maxle itself is 50 quid!! why? its not worth that much and yeah it works its way off as your hitting the rough stuff, its ok but if i could choose any axle for the back, i'd avoid this as its not the right bang for the buck its way too expensive

These are a real pain to use, fiddly and i have managed to snap the quick release whilst tightening up after noticing it had come extremely loose after a mid level ride. The cost is far too much to replace also.

As others have said, this is far too expensive for what it is. The other problem I have is it keeps working loose on serious rough stuff like the Fort William DH. I have to check and tighten it after every run. Now using locktite on the threads!

I have one of these maxle things on my orange 160, and im not happy at all with it. Its hard to get in and out its really tricky to undo the QR lever and its hard to pull out of the hub. Not much fun at the side of a trail, and to make it even better I just broke mine trying to get it out then only to fine out they cost £49.99 witch i think is taking the P***!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Good part but too expensive
Makes a difference and stiffens up the back end, but it's soooooo damn expensive for what it is!!! It's hardly 'cutting edge' engineering...why the high cost to replace it?

I have a SC Driver8 and was wondering if this rear axle will fit? The pictured axle has a straight shaft, whereas the axle that failed axle on my Driver8 has a stepped shaft (see attached pics). Thanks!
