    Strengths:    cool design; cool name

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    tensile strength of Ti is obviously superior than the caving strength of any hub, so the bottom line is whether the bite, ease of use, and quality of materials compares with the competition. With Airborne out there selling Ti skewers with 7075 Al hardware at $15/pair there is no one coming close to the value point.

    Hope makes a nice skewer, but good heavens, it costs 3X as much as the next nicest. And I swear you will not notice the difference. I bet Hope makes their skewers in the same factory....

    Any how, nice parts, but they are so simple it's silly to pay for them when just as good brands can be had at 1/3 the price.
