(2 customer reviews)

$ 42.00

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. Learn about compatibility with Hexlox security systems.

Description

  • Lightning is Better. Our front and rear Lightning Bolt-On axles offer a stronger, more durable, lower profile and lighter weight option to replace your stock thru-axles.
  • Low Profile. No more bulky handles to strike trail obstacles or create wind drag. Aerodynamic design.
  • Light Weight. Our axles are internally bored to remove unnecessary material without compromising strength.
  • Easy to install. Our matching front and rear Lightning Bolt-On Axles only require a standard 6 mm hex wrench for easy installation and removal.
  • Better Tolerances. Manufactured in the USA to the tightest tolerances using aerospace materials and CNC manufacturing. No longer will your axle loosen while riding.
  • Available Security. Learn about compatibility with Hexlox bike security systems.

This is NOT an axle for attaching trailers or trainers.

    This and the matching rear axle I purchased for my Specialized Diverge are just so much better than the stock axles. No ugly spring-loaded handle, just a clean, neat looking hex socket head. Just a little copper assembly grease on the shaft and thread made for an easy, bind-free torque-up to the recommended 12Nm.
    The axle selector menu is easy to use and the delivery was really fast to the UK. Top quality products and a top class service, both fully deserving of five stars.

    Purchased the front and rear 12mm thru axles for my ’16 Crux. Top quality manufacturing, fits beautifully – all the good stuff. A very nice finishing touch to a carefully spec ground up build. Nice Job!

Also Fits Your Bike

  • 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!
