Strengths:    Front and rear are Ti.
Very attractive.
No slipping. Fast shipping from Airborne.


Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
When my CrMo skewers broke I did not know where to go but knew I wanted Ti. Found these on Airborne.com for $15 but was charged $15 shipping! So I bought 2 pr to offset the shipping costs.
These were delivered to my home 3 states from the distribution center in 26 hrs! Now that is prompt!
They are light, attractive, high quality skewers with front and rear being Ti. $45 for two sets is a steel.
No slipping even after sprints or tough hill climbs.

Strengths:    Light weight, low price

Weaknesses:    Holding power

Bottom Line:   
Cheap price caught my attention. Rear wheel slips under high torque on my stainless dropouts. Now I have to crank it really tight and test it befrore each race starts to avoid taking the paint off my chainstays (done many times) or screwing up the race (haven't done yet). If I can get some D/A skewers for a reasonable price I'll switch.

Date Reviewed: April 5, 2002

Strengths:    Nice price, light weight

Weaknesses:    Rear skewer would not hold, grooves were vertually non-existent after 1 ride.

Bottom Line:   
I had no problems with the front wheel, but the rear skewer slipped like crazy. I have a steel frame, so I don't understand the problem. I haven't sent them back yet, but plan on it to see what the customer relations are like.

Strengths:    cheap, good.

Bottom Line:   
where else can you get a pair of Ti skewers at $15? they work perfectly - the guy at the LBS said that using Ti skewers on a Ti frame may cause problems with the rear wheel slipping, but my frame's Al.
