Little Known Fact
On a traditional QR rear wheel hub, the axle flange is the only thing that's actually 9mm - this is the part that actually interfaces with the frame's dropout. The standard QR skewer itself is actually closer to 5mm!
So you're probably thinking, how in the world can this 10mm axle fit on a frame that uses a 9mm QR? It's too big! Well, your dropout is actually 10mm! Manufacturers identify their frames to have a 9mm dropout, so that it "matches" with a 9mm axle/skewer, just so that it doesn't confuse consumers. In truth, 9mm dropouts are actually 10mm.
The traditional QR setup gives you a 5mm skewer to clamp your 9mm hub axles to a 10mm dropout. This leaves a lot of room for slop and flex, which may contribute to a host of issues, including bad shifting and poor braking performance. With this 10mm thru-axle, you gain a significant amount of clamping force on an axle/skewer that won't flex, and the 10mm axle interfaces perfectly with the 10mm dropout on your frame which minimizes alignment issues.
There's no doubt this will stiffen up the rear end and possibly resolve some performance issues. Get one only if your rear hub can accept, or can be converted to, a 10mm thru-axle. (You can't simply replace your QR skewer) This particular American Classic axle is just as effective, costs a little less, and is easier to use than the DT Swiss RWS version; though, that axle is also a good choice.
