Thru-axle counteracts a twisting as it is bonding more extensive at the bottom side of the fork and ensure a more stable and calmer front. Furthermore the wheel is always well positioned due tot he thru-axle skewer. With quickreleases it might happen, that the brake disc slips after removal and installation oft he wheel.
Tune is the first who has attended successfully to the optimising of weight of thru-axle skewer!
The here available version for FOX forks is lying with its 40 gram only 50 gram under the original part. Despite of the lower weight, our thru-axles is not subject to weight variations and can be driven without doubts. Other versions avalible for Marzocchi-, Rock shox and DT-Swiss suspension forks.
The eccentric principle is used here in the same way just like our quickrelease. In a kind of „pan“ there is a ball inclusive lever bedded in which the head of the axis is located eccentrical. With the carbon lever you can open and close the thru-axle.
Lubricants are as a rule sticky and they bond very well dirt. For the exposed and flexible parts of the new series of DC-quickrelease, Tune is using therefore a new patented method of dry mixture. Here is the solid lubricant molybdenum disulfide ( similar to graphite)embeded in a lack. After a mudbath you need to clean it instead of greasing it like the chain ring. In any case… if you like to. The intigrated lubricant varnish does not only care for a permanent grease, it enables in addition the adjustment of the lever even when closed. Gone are the days when you needed to fix in a detailed way the quickrelease. You can close the DC 15 easy and than turn it into the desired position.
Tune thru-axles – in a class of its own. Ultralight but with enormous clamping force. Unique visual appearance, lots of anodically oxidised shades. Extremely slim and safe, no sharp edges, no risk of injury.
