I downgraded this two stars because unlike the picture showing the product, ONLY ONE KEY IS INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE AND THERE IS NO WAY TO BUY ANOTHER KEY. Had the picture shown only one key and a replacement key could be ordered, I would have given this 5 stars. I really hate being lied to or misled by a company.
I have a vertical dropout (bike axle slides in from the bottom and isn't meant to be adjusted forwards and backwards) which these skewers work well for, since they don't need to be tightened as much as a horizontal dropout does.
I hand-tightened based on the math I did to determine how much torque should be applied. The package states they should be tightened to 7 Newton meters (N m), but there's no way to properly attach a torque wrench to their proprietary wrench.
How to tighten them:
The "middle" of where your hand presses on the wrench should exert 24.8 pounds of force. you could close your eyes and pretend you're lifting a 25 lb weight.
The end of the wrench has a hole in it, if you hung a 19.1 pound weight on it (with the wrench hanging parallel to the ground) that would also be 7 newton meters.
One thing to note - the picture makes it look like you get two keys. You don't, it's just one.
I've been using these for the past 6 months, aprox 200 miles, on my Cyclocross bike which see's 50/50 dirt/pavement. These skewers have been dependable and easy to remove. I've had a few flats and it only takes a couple extra seconds to wrench these off vs. a quick release. For me its worth the extra time as this bike is parked out on the streets of Seattle in not the best of neighborhoods.
cons: only comes with one key, skewer ends are matte and not polished, difficult to torque down
while there are a lot of protective measure available, i trust hublox on all of my bikes. i most recently purchased a set for an $800 wheelset i just built up.
there's no such thing as an unbreakable lock; in my mind, the best thing you can do is increase the inconveniences a thief has to face. this is what hublox does--it adds inconvenience and turns your bike into less of a target. now, this doesn't mean you're completely protected, especially against bike thieves who really know what they're doing, but 95% of the scumbags looking to turn a quick buck at the pawn shop to feed their meth habit aren't going to be master thieves. hublox protects your wheels from the average scumbag looking to make a quick steal.
regarding the "torque down" under my list of cons, the driveside end of my campy rear hub is flat, not toothed (no idea why). even under incredibly tight torquing, the hub kept slipping in the dropouts. i ended up having to put on a quick release rear skewer through the wheel to resolve this issue. for 99% of the hubs out there, this really isn't going to be an issue.
