Kabolt Axle

When seconds matter, shaving a few grams can make or break a trip to the podium. Fox Racing Shox crafts the Kabolt Axle for weight-conscious racers looking to drop that bulky QR from the front axle in order to get every last advantage on the course. The 100mm version clocks in at a claimed 40g lighter than Fox Racing Shox's standard skewer. Either size is compatible with all 15mm quick-release forks and installs in a flash with a 6mm hex wrench. As an added bonus, the Kabolt eliminates worries of catching a quick-release lever on errant rocks and branches.

  • A lighter bolt-on axle for Fox Racing Shox forks
  • 54% weight savings vs. standard quick-release axle
  • Tightens into place using 6mm hex key
  • Available in gloss black or anodized orange

New design is heavier

I just purchased the black kabolt and it doesn’t look like the picture (mine is relieved in the center). It’s noticeably heavier than the previous version 46g vs 35g. New one also doesn’t have the stainless washer. Bummer, that Fox took over and made the product worse.

Good look and fit. Makes the front end look fast and I could use some help in that department. Fastens easy with 6mm and never think about it again.

I've put it through the wringer

Low profile, looks great, and saves weight. A great upgrade from the stock quick release lever. Perfect for anyone who doesn't need to remove their front wheel on a daily basis.

Orange is the new black

I've put it through the wringer

Picked this up to set the bike apart a little bit. I know, vein, but hey...I like colors. Wanted to change it up a bit with so many other guys in the office rocking a Santa Cruz Bronson set up as well.

So this is definitely just a necessary bolt for ones bike. I couldn't help myself but to have some blingy orange bolt holding my fork together! I bought one for my dirt jumper and one for my trail bike because I was over a quick release on the front wheel. Plus the orange matches my bike

used it in a pinch

I've put it through the wringer

my girlfriend lost here thru axle and we used this one in a pinch it will fit rockshox pike boost fork....but don't recommend trying it.

Agreed on the use on RS Pike forks. It doesn't thread as far as the standard RS maxle and if it isn't tight, you can pull threads and damage the fork.

QR's are great, when you need to constantly take your front wheel off for a roof rack, but with most racks not utilizing a front axle retention system, forget it. Also, I will take weight savings anywhere I can, as long as it does not compromise performance. Throwing out the QR and saving 40grams works for me. Plus the orange thru bolt looks rad!
