    I only have Great Things to say about The Robert Axle Project Company and their front and rear axle option , I ride a 2015 Focus Mares CX Bike with the R.A.T. thru axle system. By replacing the R.A.T. thru axle with the Lighting Bolt-On Axle I have removed all of the inconsistency that I was having. The fit and finish of the lightning bolt-on axle is top of the market.

    Really great product. My Izalco Max Disc was having issues with the RAT thru axles and I couldn’t find replacements here in Canada, despite trying. While I did like the RAT axles, these are a far superior and more durable solution. Also, really great build quality. Thank you!

    The best solution for R.A.T Axle! Finnaly front wheel has a perfect stiffness, axle from Robert works and looks perfect!!!

  4. Dave (verified owner)

    Fantastic replacement for the R.A.T thru axle system. Two thumbs up!!
    My daughter rides a 2016 Focus Mares CX & on her first ride with the Robert Axle she noticed a superior difference in the stiffness of the front axle.
    Now time to order the rear – should have done both together
    Excellent product.
    Thanks
