After years of mountain biking with thru-axles with bulky handles that seemed to strike every trailside obstacle we needed a better option. Our Lightning Bolt-On thru axles offer the highest quality, simple, lightweight alternative to that bulky handle. Available in a range of sizes that fit both front and rear wheels on all types of thru-axle equipped bikes. Compatible with Hexlox security systems.

This thru axle is compatible with bikes that have the FOCUS R.A.T. thru axle system and 12×148 hub spacing. M12x1.5 threaded replacement nut included, to replace the FOCUS R.A.T. nut that came on your bike.

    THIS IS REALLY GREAT PRODUCT!
    Now I’m using it in UCI official races. I was looking for a thru-axle that can replace the FOCUS RAT system. I met this happily! This is really light and great quality.
    My bike is FOCUS 01E
