In the German cycling magazine „Rennrad 11-12/2009“ DC 14 came out as the winner in a skewer contest. Now we have overhauled ourselves for the holding forces of the U20 are 100N higher over DC14 – at more than 50% weight saving! We use the same excenter-technique for both skewers and a slight modification of the superlight Skyline nuts. The axle comes out of carbon, at the ends with glued-on Ti- respectively Al-threads. For safety reasons the necessary gluing has been doubled about theory. That the U20 stresses only the hub axle and not you we treated the excenter mechanism with a patented bonded lubricant. On these lifetime lubricated surfaces dirt has low adhesion, can be washed and wiped off easily and you never need fluid and tacky lubricants. Fascinating, isn`t it?
