After years of mountain biking with thru-axles with bulky handles that seemed to strike every trailside obstacle (including ourselves) 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. Learn about compatibility with Hexlox security systems.

    Bought this for my 2017 Trek Top Fuel 8.
    Pros:
    Made in the United States of America.
    Bolt-on piece of mind.
    No more gigantic QR levers sticking off my bike.
    No more fighting with QR levers to release/tighten them.
    No more deciding which direction looks coolest and is safest when closing the QR levers.
    No more banged up QR levers detracting from the look of your bike.
    Mega fresh appearance. Much fresher than the shiny anodized blingy ones available from other companies. Subtlety is key. Your bike already has enough color accents. Trust me.
    Everyone is jealous.
    Cons:
    None.

    This is an excellent though subtle upgrade that should definitely be the second thing you do to your brand new bike (after a fitting). I check them with a torque wrench before I leave my house for a ride so that there is never anything to worry about. That being said, they haven’t loosened at all since I’ve installed them about 60 miles of vicious trail riding ago. Buy these.

    This axle is great, the customer service is awesome! I placed an order for an axle size that was in-between sizes. I ordered the shorter thinking it would be enough. Then I got an email explaining the axle is too for my Foes Mutz and to order the bigger size and adding a spacer. This is brilliant, you guy’s are great! thank you and keep the good work up.

    Super happy with this replacement axle for my Focus Mares R.A.T. which was proving to be very problematic. Perfect replacement and it’s an easy installation. I actually ordered the wrong one initially and one of the reps from Robert Axle contacted me immediately to confirm and corrected my order.

    I received the axle within two days – super happy with this purchase and the service. Wish I’d done this earlier.
