Description

If you’re tired of having a thru axle that sticks out far past your hub, but you’re skeptical of ultra-lightweight parts, then the Thunder Bolt-On Axle may be for you. Simple, clean, and very strong, these bolt-on thru axles are a perfect alternative to your stock thru axle. Easy to install and remove, too!

  • The diameter of this axle is 12 mm and the true length of the axle shaft is 183 mm. Spacers included for a 175 mm 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. A 12×148 hub does not equal a 148 mm long axle.

  • Weight: 64 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.

    I chose the Thunderbolt over the Lightningbolt axle for the rear on my wife’s new ebike, which is pretty burly at 50+ pounds and 150 mm travel. Looks great and fits like it was made for it. Solid, quality built, and local Oregon,USA business. Can’t go wrong!
