Thunder Bolt-On Axles replace your stock thru axle on your 12 mm thru-axle equipped bike.
- The true length of the axle shaft is 188 mm. It can be shortened using the included spacers – a flat 6 mm spacer and a tapered 6 mm X-12 spacer. This allows for axle lengths of 176, 182, or 188 mm. 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 148mm long axle.
- This axle has a 1.5 mm thread pitch.
- 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.
- No special tools required. Design allows for installation or wheel removal using your standard 5 mm hex wrench.
- Designed, built and quality tested in the USA. Proven around the world.
