Some riders like to have light parts on their bikes while others prefer something with maximum strength; the Vigilante falls on the latter end of the two choices. Originally, this skewer was only specced out for mountain bikes, but we had all these roadies demanding they not be left out, and if there’s one thing we do know…… you don’t anger a roadie! To make it acceptably light for road riders we milled out the middle of the lever. But then the mountain bikers saw the new design and demanded it as well because it looks better. So…..we decided to make everyone happy and offer the same design across the board. The new lever design and axles will fit both road and mountain bikes and we finally got roadies and mountain bikers to agree on something!
