Certain parts of the bike really don’t have much in the way of sex appeal, like, say, wheel skewers. Okay there was the purple anodise phase a few years ago but for the most part skewers are a bit, well, boring.
Then along come these little numbers from Planet X with plenty of bling. These skewers aren’t just about looks though. They’re made from lightweight yet super strong titanium so there will be no problems with stretching or bending over time. Add to this the little carbon fibre sleeves used on the release itself and you have the makings of some true bike jewellery. These are not only light and strong but are also easy to flick open even when you’re wearing gloves in the colder months. Compared to a regular set of skewers you could save yourself a fair few grams too. This is certainly great for the weight weenies out there and those who love every little last component to have a special something.
