Quick releases & skewers
Atomic 22 infiniti3D is a comprehensive, clever and effective security system designed to protect all your bike's components, from the usual seatposts, stems and quick release skewers through to brakes, shifters, derailleurs, chain-rings, pedals and saddles. The parts are made from high-strength titanium, so it's not cheap.
Zefal’s Lock n’ roll security skewers are something of a missed opportunity to produce an imaginative and inexpensive deterrent to opportunist thieves when locking in the street, outside the café’ and other situations where bikes are left unattended for shorter periods. Standard quick releases in my experience invite unwelcome attention from the light fingered who may snatch a skewer should the bike, wheels and seat post be locked to an immobile object.
These Brunico skewers are a good quality, nice-looking set that'll complement a posh wheelset well. Testing their claims of universal compatibility, I’ve paired them with eighteen- year old Campagnolo road and modern Shimano MTB hubs with no discernable problems.
This security pack contains stainless steel locking skewers, a seatpost lock and top cap lock designed to prevent the light fingered from whipping your wheels, seat post and increasingly, valuable forks and stem. The system works on a similar principle as household door locks with a unique combination, operable only with the supplied key which doubles as a useful bottle opener.
