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

  • Our Trainer Axle is designed to adapt your thru axle equipped bike with your wheel-on trainer, such as a 1up, Blackburn, Cyclops, Kinetic, Tacx, Wahoo and many other trainers. Our goal is to fit the thru axle to your bike perfectly, so we minimize spacers and extra parts, providing a clean, high performance axle for your bike. Train, warm up and be race ready and fit for the season.

    An additional benefit you will experience, once you switch to our threaded trainer axle, when riding outside with this axle your disc brake will no longer rub. This is due to the more consistent and greater clamping force of a threaded thru axle vs the RAT system. Consider our Lightning Bolt-on Front axle to rid your bike of the flex from the R.A.T.

    This axle is specific to bikes with FOCUS R.A.T. thru axles and 12×142 or Boost hub spacing. Includes a replacement R.A.T. nut with the Trainer Axle.

  • Purchase Robert Axle Thru axles and Hexlox locks for both your axles and for other vulnerable components.

    Here’s how:

    1. To secure your Lightning Bolt-On Axles, you’ll need one 6mm Hexlox for each axle. These include the magnetic insert for our axles which, since they are aluminum are not magnetic.
    2. Add at least one key to install and remove your Hexlox system. You will receive a key which matches the Hexlox you order. Order multiple keys if you want a spare.
    3. For other all other components, check your bike for what you want to secure. Options include Hexlox’s that fit in 4mm, 5mm and 6mm bolts, so check your bike and purchase what you need!
    4. Don’t forget to go here (link) and order our Lightning Bolt-on Axles  for your bike. Enter your bike information into our Fitment Selector database.
