    Absolutely perfect. I purchased the thru-axle to use with Hexlox on my Scott Solace. Still waiting on the Hexlox to arrive, but the axle worked perfectly.

    Perfect fit/function on my Giant TCX advanced.

    High quality axles with precise threads and clean labeling. Lightweight. Good looking. An excellent product.

    Originally bought one of the trainer specific axles for my Giant TCX. Got a message back before the product shipped that I probably didn’t need it, as my stock axle should work fine with my trainer. However, the rear axle that came with my Giant TCX cannot be securely fastened on my CycleOps Hammer due to the length of the handle on the stock thru axle. So, I was recommended this product instead and it shipped fast. As expected, it works great. The only wish I have is that the washer, a single one (6mm I believe), would instead have been two washers of 3mm each. Using just on washer would’ve made for a perfectly flush fit on my Giant TCX (although this doesn’t matter much on a trainer). Excellent customer service!

    Perfect fit on my Liv Langma. Beautifully low profile and light.

    Superb product, light and strong. Service was excellent even when I messed up my order was corrected very quickly and politely. Quick post to the UK too.
    I’m very pleased and have already recommended.

    This axle was a direct replacement for the bulky stock rear thru axle. Cleans up the look of my Giant TCX-CX. Thanks for making a high quality axle!

    Fantastic fit for my Devinci Hatchet. Roughly half the weight of the stock thru axle and way easier to install and remove! Have bought one for my trainer, as well as a set for my road bike!
