    Difference between rear maxle and rear maxle lite

    Is there a difference between a rear maxle and rear maxle lite? Is it just a weight difference or are they different mechanically some way? I have the rear maxle dropouts and need to buy the maxle itself now.

    the two versions are compatible with the same frames. The Maxle lite gets skinnier down the center so it only contacts the hub axle near the two ends. See this picture
