Lightning Bolt-on Axle – Rear 12 mm x 170 mm x 1.75 Thread

(5 customer reviews)

$ 48.00

You have a  beautiful road bike it should have beautiful low-profile thru axles to match. Bulky thru axle handles have no place on your svelte road bike. 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.

Cervelo owners with RAT thru axles: This axle will replace the RAT axle found on all of their RAT equipped bikes. In addition to this axle you will need to replace the RAT compatible derailleur hanger with Cervelo threaded hanger Part Code: DRH-WMN112. This axle combined with the replacement derailleur hanger will provide a complete threaded thru axle system. If you don’t know what “RAT” is then this message is not for you, but the axle still is.

    They’re wonderful! They’re half the wait of my Cervelo C3 axles. Thanks so much!

  2. eliot pitney (verified owner)

    The fit was perfect and it really cleaned up the look to the bike. I will get another set for the CX bike!

  3. Lauris (verified owner)

    Amazing stuff. Saved 60grams from my R5 Disc stock RAT axles (front + rear) with these – nobody else really offers an alternative on the market. Top shelf product + the communication and shipping overseas was super quick as well. Highly recommended.

    Top product, purchase with drop-out and was a effortless swap a big difference in looks and weight savings.
    I recommend this 100%.

    Ordered this for my 2018 Cervelo S3 disc (along with the front axle which I had ordered earlier from another vendor, but I’ll be ordering direct from T.R.A.P. from now on to show my support for their tremendous product and exceptional customer service). I was expecting the 30g weight savings per axle, as well as the aesthetic improvement of no longer having an axle lever protruding from the fork and chain-stay. What I wasn’t expecting that it would fix the rotor rub I had been experiencing in the 4 months I’d owned the Cervelo. Previously, if I put the bike under strong torque forces (like getting up off the saddle to put down some watts to get up an incline, or cornering hard on a high speed descent) the front disc rotor would rub slightly, no matter how well I aligned the pads and rotors.

    Once I installed the front T.R.A.P. axle…those annoying rubs were gone. My local bike mechanic’s theory (I asked him why this could have happened) was that the stock TAs were flexing under heavy load, where’s T.R.A.P. TAs were so strong and well made that they didn’t flex as much (or at all?) and thus the rotor no longer rubbed under torque-y conditions.

    I was so grateful for the unanticipated benefit that I immediately purchased their TAs for my Giant TCR, and will be doing so again for my new Giant Revolt!

  • 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!

The Drive Thru is also great or packing the bike for transport. Originally developed by cyclocross legend, McGovern Cycles, now brought to you by The Robert Axle Project!

    *How to order: This product is thread pitch dependent. You must order the same thread pitch as the thru axle in your bike. Need help with that? Visit our What Axle Do I Need page for help with measuring your thread pitch.
