Designed for big rides and big riders. Our Thunder Bolt-On replacement thru-axles are a strong and durable option to replace your stock through axle. Thunder Bolt-On Axles are NOT for use with a trailer, but are a solid option if you’re looking to replace your stock thru axle with a more durable, lower profile design. If you want a lighter weight axle, then check out our Lightning Bolt-On Axles.

This is NOT an axle for attaching trailers or trainers.

Simple, clean, and very strong, these bolt-on thru axles are a perfect alternative to your stock thru axle. Easy to install and remove, too!

    Perfectly described and documented on the website, it was no surprise that the axle I bought fit perfectly and did it’s job on my first fat bike bike packing trip.

    Great presages Support with the printable size guide etc.

    Great product, works as described, fixed the issue of a loosening rear axle on my Fat CAAD 1. Great support as well. Thanks!

  3. Mike Graham (verified owner)

    Great axle, machining and quality is top notch. Correct length, spacing and threads are perfect and replaces the QR with style. Nicely butted to reduce weight on the centre section that sits inside the hub. A definite upgrade for my Fatcaad 3.

    The axle finder made the decision easy. Only retailer I was comfortable purchasing a replacement axle from without worrying If I had the correct thread and length. Shipping to Canada was really fast as well.
