    Good Titanium quick release skewers

    Hi guys,

    I want to replace my heavy Shimano XT qr skewers with something lighter (titanium).
    I have tried Mavic Ksyrium (road) and KCNC (MTB) but the handle of the front QR interfere with my Fox float fork.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    DT Swiss RWS 75 Ti skewers, even the steel shaft versions are lighter than XTR, and they won't come undone accidentally.

    I've just bought some A2Z ones. Only had them on the bike for a few rides but no problems so far, nice big lever and a positive cam action - certainly stronger than the old Mavic QR's they've just replaced (and suprisingly cheap to buy!)

    Are these skewers for a road bike?

    I have the steel DT RWS skewers on my HT and I find them great.
    They help stiffen up the front end a lot. The great thing about them is that you can do them up real tight, more so than a conventional cam skewer and they're very easy to open.
    When I get a new wheelset for my SXC, I'll be using the 10mm thru-bolt version on the rear for sure.

    I can't say enough good things about the bolt on rear axle version of the Easton Havoc AM wheels. That just makes the tail end of the SXC as solid as a rock.
