Salsa Cycles Flip-Offs Skewers

5/5 (3 Reviews)

Product Description

Scorchin' good looks are just one of the benefits of the venerable Flip-Offs™. They're light and durable, too. Available in Ti, Stainless, or our mixed Suspension set (Ti rear, Stainless front), in a cornucopia of colors: black, silver, red, blue, gold, gray and rasta. Flip-Offs™ sold as pairs and individually front and rear. Tandem length in Stainless only. Stainless 104grams, Suspension 94grams, Ti 85grams P.S. Flip-Offs™ have rods long enough to fit all bikes. For safty's sake please trim the excess rod once you've sized them for your bike (makes 'em even lighter!) P.P.S. Always allow the cam to fully engage (this means: don't let a fork tube or frame stay stop the lever travel when closing). P.P.S.S. Titanium skewers are NOT to be used with suspension forks.

Strengths:    They dont just look good, they work good. light and durable.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Ther are alot of skewers out there that look good but not many that hold you wheel tight and dont break your hand. A little oil every now and then will help.

Strengths:    Unique looks, secure locking action, exclusivity, wide range of colors.

Weaknesses:    Non that I can think of.

Bottom Line:   
I'll be honest, I bought these because of their looks - very different from most everything else out there. Bicycling mag also voted these one of its "best products" or editors choice. The locking action is the best I've ever tried, very secure without having to really honk on the lever. Buy a set!
