Anyone fancy one of our Showa H&D lightweight custom 7075 hollow axles? A shop demo axle that we have to show people and we had it sat in a set of Showa forks on the 'shelf' bike. 82 grams lighter than a standard l/w alloy axle. £100. RRP £135
"Not just in Ti, we now do our famous hollow axles in 7075 alloy.
This is a saving on material cost over Ti, but also with the added bonus of being even lighter!!
I know, you are thinking that the standard axles are alloy. yes they are, but as well as being a dense and cheap grade of alloy. they are not hollow like these racing axles. So with these you save even more weight than usual!! "
