The DT Swiss Ratchet Wheel-mounting System (RWS) offers a unique way to securely fasten wheels. The RWS builds clamping force by tightening a bolted connection with an aluminum ratchet handle (lever). Wheel attachment requires minimal effort and provides a significant increase in clamping force compared with traditional eccentric quick release designs.
IMPORTANT FITMENT INFORMATION: Please read before purchasing
Thru Axles must be specified by three parameters:
- Total length
- Attachment seat type
- Thread pitch and thread length
Step 2: Attachment seat type. This is the contact point between the thru axle and your frame/fork. Attachment will either be flat seat or cone shaped seat type.
Step 3: Thread details. Thread pitch is the distance from one thread to the next. If you do not have an accurate measurement tool it is easiest to count threads in groups as follows
For a 1.5mm thread pitch 6 threads will cover approximately 10mm in total length. For a 1.0mm thread pitch 10 threads will cover exactly 10mm in length.
