The DT Swiss RWS thru bolt optimizes the RWS (Ratchet Wheelmounting System) even more. Instead of a regular 5 mm quick release axle, a 9mm (front) / 10mm (rear) thru bolt is used. Together with a DT Swiss thru bolt hub it offers an even stiffer connection to the frame or fork than a standard RWS or other quick releases. The RWS thru bolt system combines the advantages of a proper thru axle with the ease of use of a standard quick release.
Featuring an aluminium lever.
The RWS thru bolt system is fully compatible with any standard frame or fork that features traditional 9/10mm dropouts. The RWS thru bolt does not fit traditional quick release hubs!
The handling of the RWS is very simple: Tighten up the system by turning the lever clockwise by hand as firm as possible (min. 15 Nm). Depending on the frame or fork construction, this can be done by turning the lever several times. Once the wheel is mounted firm and safe, the lever can be aligned in a tidy and safe position.
The RWS is 100% disc brake compatible with no plastic or synthetic material parts interrupting the force flow. As a result the clamping force of the RWS is not influenced by heat. RWS quick releases allow a clamping force up to 50% greater than traditional quick releases. The resulting connection of the wheel to the frame or fork is is not just safer, but also firmer and therefore stiffer. This becomes particularly apparent on bikes with disc brakes.
