True, the DT Swiss RWS Titanium Road Skewers look like a standard quick release skewer, but they offer a bit more. Their system takes the quick release in a whole new direction. It's called Laufradbefestigungssystem, or in English, a Ratcheting Wheelmounting System (RWS). They have the springs, adjustable nut, and skewer rod of a quick release, but in place of a lever attached to a cam, there's an alloy lever attached to a bolt head.

The surprise is inside. The fixed end of the rod has teeth that mesh into corresponding teeth inside the lever head. Turn the lever clockwise to tighten. When there is sufficient resistance (15Nm), stop turning. Press the red button to release the ratchet and 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. The shafts are high-strength 6/4 Grade 5 titanium, and the lever arms are skeletonized aluminum for light weight and durability. Want it off? Simply start turning the lever counter-clockwise.

The DT Swiss RWS Titanium Road Skewers include both front and rear skewers. Please Note: These are designed for road use. In particular, the rear RWS skewer is designed for a 130mm rear hub width. The front weighs 43g and the rear is 46g.
