    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!!!

    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

    Lightning Bolt-on axles are a great products. While R.A.T. axles were initially appealing in concept, in practice not so much. The simplicity and high quality of Lightning Bolt-ons have resulted in lighter weight, more secure attachment (no more disc rub), better looking and more aerodynamic-what’s not to love?

  • 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!
