Description

Since 2013, we have been an important part of cyclists’ adventures all over the world. Our axles have millions of miles on them in mountain bikes and road bikes, carbon bikes, fat bikes and e-bikes. Our axles are specifically designed to handle the high-torque loads generated by e-bikes.

Your stock thru-axle is not strong enough to haul your precious cargo! Our axles are 3 to 4 times stronger than the stock axle that came with your bike. Our stainless steel axle ends provide a safe and secure attachment point of the hitch to the axle. The axle is quick to install and remove with a common 5mm hex key.

Our axles are not just designed in the USA, but are made here as well. They are machined by avid cyclists to the tightest standards in the industry. We safety test, to failure, every batch of axles we produce to ensure they exceed your expectations.

Specification

Robert Axle for Kid Trailers replaces your stock thru-axle so you can attach a child or cargo trailer to your 12 mm thru axle equipped bike.

 

  • This axle is compatible with Burley, Carry Freedom, Chariot/Thule, Croozer, Instep, and many more hitch style trailers.
  • The true length of the axle shaft is 178 mm, but can be shortened using the included 6 mm spacer. This allows for axle lengths of 172 mm or 178 mm. Please note: Thru-axle lengths do not equal hub standards. An axle has to be longer than the hub to fit in the frame. A 12×148 hub does not equal a 148 mm long axle.
  • This axle has a 1.5 mm thread pitch.
  • The axle shaft and axle end are precision CNC machined.
  • The axle shaft is 7075 aluminum and hard black anodized for rugged durability.
  • The axle end is stainless steel, which allow for mounting of the hitch provided with your trailer. The threads are M10x1 (metric).
  • Hardware for attachment of the hitch is included; the hitch is not.
  • No special tools required. Design allows for installation or wheel removal using your standard 5mm hex wrench.
  • Designed, built and quality tested in the USA. Proven around the world.

    Brilliant bit of kit that fits perfectly and does the job it was designed for without any fuss. Just follow the instructions on the website to select the correct axle and place your order. Delivered to the UK in two weeks as promised and the guys at the Robert Axle Project couldn’t be more helpful. In fact it was so straightforward I ordered another axle for my Bob trailer and with a couple of quick modifications to the Bob yoke to open it up to the the width of my boost rear (see the Robert Axle Project YouTube instructions) the axle dropped in to perfection.
    Sweet as, thanks guys!

    Works a treat with my budget Nashbar trailer and my new Raleigh Willard 2. Fit and finish are excellent, took maybe 5 minutes to install.

    thank you for the great axle – it works flawless. I´m happy and my kids are too!
    It´s a very good product.

    I ordered my axel and the day it came I got an email from Chris at the project and let me know they might have sent the wrong axel by mistake. I checked and indeed it was wrong one, they sent new one right away. I was extremely happy with their service and their outreach to me even before I opened my package. Top service let me say!
    The new axel arrived very quick and worked great. My daughter loves going on rides and now she can go with me with my new BMC. Quality is great and everything was perfect!

    This is fantastic! I’m not highly mechanical at all. I read the directions and watched the YouTube video. Took no time to replace the old axle. Been riding around with the toddler in tow ever since.

  8. Andy (verified owner)

    It’s a thru-axle. It installs easily (watching the install video helps) and it does the job I need it to. Nothing fancy other than the price tag, but it’s the only way to pull our dog trailer on my new bike.

  9. Garrett M Frampton

    Works great for my 2018 Raleigh Redux iE electric bike. Took 2 minutes to install. On day #1 I forgot to tighten the nylon washer and lost it. Robert Axle sent me another for free. Thanks! I did buy a T-shirt.

  10. Ahmed Tawashi (verified owner)

    Expensive but well made product. Superfast shipment. Fit my 2018 Salsa Cutthroat perfectly. Pulls the Burley Bee nicely.

  11. Braf (verified owner)

    Works great. Fast shipping. Easy website.

    Only issue is that another spacer would have been nice. Installed the threaded portion protrudes significantly out the other side. I probably could have just asked for one and they’d have sent it, so it really isn’t their bad.

  12. Robert E Martinez (verified owner)

    Great product. Easy to follow instructions to order the right axel. Easy to install. Now when my wife and I ride the dog goes with us. We’re a happy family. And I will be order an axel for my wife’s bike. She wants to be able to tow our Charlie as well.
    Had a few questions when I placed my order. Questions were answered ASAP.
    Excellent customer service!!
