    Superb quality! I wanted to replace the DT Swiss RWS thru axle on my Trek Emonda SLR Disc and this worked perfectly. Great customer service from the folks at Robert Axle Project. The only place I will turn to for thru axles in the future.

    My Robert Axle Project Story: My new years resolution for 2018 was to build a 650B gravel bike. I spent months planning, searching for the right components, geometry, etc. My goal: that the first time I sat on the bike, it would feel perfect (no adjustments needed). For some reason, the frame I purchased did not come with axles. I was at a loss trying to find the exact specifications needed, tried DT Swiss, Maxle, Shimano, i9, fox, the list goes on…I was ready to call it quits, to give up and just buy a 105 Slate (a fantastic bike, but not the passion project that I spent so many hours planning) when I stumbled upon The Robert Axle Project. Like clockwork, the site had my exact frame model in its list of choices. Finding the correct axle was so easy, I thought it was too good to be true and that there was bound to be some compatibility issue that I was overlooking. On the contrary: the first time I screwed in my axle, it felt as if the heavens had opened and handed me a warm butter knife and a silk blanket, and I proceeded to cut through multiple sticks of butter while completely engulfed in the finest fabrics on a brisk Fall morning.

    So, in short, my review of the Lightning bolt-on axle: EXCELLENT

    I replaced the stock axles on my 2019 Trek Madone, and couldn’t be happier. They are lighter, more aero, and more secure against wheel theft. I can’t say anything other than they are an excellent, high quality upgrade!
