TUNE DC-130 Road Skewers, ti axles, disc approved, black
For the DC130 road skewers, Tune has brought together aluminium, titanium, and carbon fiber to create one of the lightest and most attractive quick release road skewers available. Using several clever and elegant design features, the DC130 has titanium axles, i suitable for disc applications and is just 37 grams. Perhaps the most unique and striking feature of these skewers are the thin but strong carbon lever ends. The lever bases and adjusting caps are elegantly machined from high strength 7075 aluminium alloys, with knurls added to the dropout contacts and adjusting nut for maximum security and easy adjustment. Tune's skewer design operates the same as most other skewers, with a simple closure of the lever to secure the hub in the dropouts. Tune coats the ball joint pan with a special self lubricating molybdenum disulfide (i.e. graphite) to both reduce friction in the cam and remove the need to grease this interface. Instead, the cam should just be kept clean and dry. The skewer threads should be occasionally lubricated with a light grease to prevent corrosion and allow for smooth adjustment.
