Secure retention for your wheel - in a sophisticated package. Tune's breakthrough was more than 25 years ago with superlight quick release skewers. The product is still available today and has been refined over the years. There have been many copies but no-one could ever reach the original. The most noticeable feature: tune quick release skewers are the only bike parts to ever go to space! On the MIR space station a tune quick release skewer securely held a fixture in place. Get the original!

Using several clever and elegant design features, the DC 130 achieves an incredible weight of 34 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 aluminum alloy, with knurls added to the dropout contacts and adjusting nut for maximum security and easy adjustment. Both front and rear axles are constructed from 6/4 titanium in a tension screw design for maximum strength where it's needed.

Installation and Maintenance
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. However, the ball-and socket eccentric cam allows for the skewer tension to be modified once the lever is closed. Simply rotate the lever clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the clamping force. Tune impregnates the socket plate with molybdenum disulfide (i.e. graphite) to reduce friction in the cam. For this reason, the cam does not require lubrication, and should be kept clean and dry. The skewer threads should be occasionally lubricated with a light grease to prevent corrosion and allow for smooth adjustment.
