" Bling bling "


Overall Rating

The Review
A pair of reliable skewers without any problems at all, other than the too tight area. Unique design, others swear by their seatclamps, but I don't think they will be going for their skewers. Cause a sore hand if undoing the QR without gloves if it's very tight. Get it if you wanna match your bikeparts colours. Pimpy!

Strengths
Nice variety of colours avaliable.
Laser-etched logos.

Weaknesses
Price wise is abit on the above average side.
If overtighten, you might have a big problem undoing the QR. Especially if you are in a race.
The colours gets scratches off very easily.
Need to take extra precautions when fixing a puncture out on the road/trail.
