Whats people opinions on the Planet X ti stick skewers (the ones with carbon fibre levers) ?

In need of some new ones and want something light and fancy. Must be red aswell :lol:

    Ideal then, as they're light, fancy and come in red. Mine weigh 42 grams for the pair and they have a lovely action, very smooth.

    I'd buy some. In fact, I did.

    +1 for the red...
    Start with a budget, finish with a mortgage!
  • They are OK. They are light and good value for pound/weight and look good. I've got the black ones.

    However they are not as secure as traditional (read: Campag, Shimano) skewers. Even done up tight it's possible to rotate the skewer to tighten some more.

    I've decided to change back.
