Fantastic and in-depth overview on skewers from Fairwheel Bikes
Skewers are an often overlooked component on the bike, even though they can be a great way to reduce significant weight for a small price. Of course getting a skewer that doesn’t work for you may make any weight savings not worth it — it doesn’t matter how light a skewer is if it just lets the rear wheel slip under load. We’ve opted to review only skewers we know and trust. There is nothing in this review that we don’t consider a good skewer and most of these will work for just about any rider, but maybe not in all circumstances. Hopefully the following will help you find that one that meets your needs the best.
