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. 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. Compatible with Hexlox bike security systems.

This is NOT an axle for attaching trailers or trainers.

 

Specification

  • The diameter of this axle is 12 mm and the true length of the axle shaft is 158 mm. We include a 5 mm tapered X-12 spacer for a 153 mm axle fitment. Please note: Thru-axle lengths do not equal hub standards. An axle has to be longer than the hub to fit in the frame.

  • This axle has a 1.0 mm thread pitch.
  • Weight: 40 grams
  • The axle is precision CNC machined in the USA from 7075 aluminum and hard anodized for rugged durability. Our axles are built to the tightest standards in the industry.

    Hi, I recently ordered a pair of your Lightning Bolt-On Axles for my Specialized Diverge and was very pleased at how soon they arrived at my delivery address in the UK. The axles are now on the bike and are a huge visual improvement on the nasty looking stock axles. With a small amount of copper assembly grease they torqued straight up to 12 Nm without any binding.
    Great product and a fantastically prompt service, thanks to everyone involved. USPS must get a mention here too.

    Kind Regards – John

    This is a quick follow-up to the email I sent to The Robert Axle Project and which appears above. If you want a nice, clean appearance without unsightly, easily damaged, potentially unreliable handles, not to mention the dead weight (the handles on my former axles have been replaced by a hex bit that fits into a tyre lever which doubles as a wrench), then these are the axles you want!
    No moving parts, unlike some over-complicated solutions I’ve seen, just solidly-engineered simplicity. Tidy!
