DT Swiss RWS Aluminum Lever Thru Bolt DT Swiss RWS Aluminum Lever Thru Bolt
This RWS Thru Bolt w/Aluminum Lever is the latest version of DT's RWS technology. Where the standard RWS Thru Bolt uses a carbon reinforced plastic lever arm, you'll get a lever made from machined aluminum here. The weight is exactly the same, and you'll perhaps get more durability in the event of a crash with these alloy bits, not to mention the appeal of the more sculpted look. RWS stands for Ratchet Wheelmounting System. It has the look of a quick release (minus the springs), but in place of a lever attached to a cam, there's a lever attached to a bolt head. Turn the lever clockwise to tighten. When there is sufficient resistance (15nm), stop turning. Press the red button to position the lever in a place where it won't get knocked around. You're done, and the benefits are pretty obvious. It provides up to 50% greater clamping force than with a conventional quick release, which can be a great thing when riding a disc brake in front as it will resist the twisting forces better. And, they make it super easy to pop your wheels off your bike. The oversized shafts are high-strength, light weight 7075 aluminum, as are the lever arms. Want it off' Just start turning the lever counter-clockwise to loosen. The DT Swiss RWS Thru Bolt w/ Aluminum Lever is available to fit three hub configurations -- Front 9x100mm, Rear 10x135mm, Rear 12x142mm (Syntace X-12 type). The weights are as follows: 49g (front 9 x 100) 63g (rear 10 x 135.)

Zipp Tangente Titanium Quick-Release Skewer - Pair Zipp Tangente Titanium Quick-Release Skewer - Pair
Sacrificing a set of skewers to the race gods every so often is an unavoidable part of cycling. If you joined the ranks of those who made the sacrifice this weekend, you can give yourself some small consolation by replacing the ones you lost with the Zipp Tangente Titanium Quick-Release Skewer Pair. The skewers are hollow titanium, and their handles feature a wider, more comfortable lever that's shaped to contour cleanly with your frame when closed. According to Zipp, the lever's aerodynamic design can also help save you a couple of watts over older, less precise options.
