If you need your skewers really tight for some reason I wouldn't go this route. They are thin and light which also makes them a tad hard to grip and open. They function well though and are good looking
I got them mostly because I disliked the look of the ones that came with the bike. But when i got them, I was surprise how much lighter they were.
I like the fact that they are stainless and are lighter than the ones I got with my, look better and should outlast the oem skewers as well.
Sharp stainless steel by Zipp. They work perfectly with my Shimano Ultegra hubs, look real nice and will never rust like the original skewers.
