Product Description

It's hard not to smile when seeing Salsa skewers. The original incarnation of Salsa was run by a guy who always found a way to make bike parts fun. The Salsa Stainless Suspension Flip-offs first came about when everyone else was "serious" about gram shaving. The original flip-offs were advertised as "Light. Functional. Expensive." It was a jibe at the "slow" releases some of the ultralight skewer sets really were. The levers came in a variety of anodized colors, including the mixed-color "Rasta" set. Nowadays, Salsa has progressive new owners, but the vibe is still there and the skewers are still great. The Rasta set still exists, too. The lever has a sculpted look that is both elegant and makes opening and closing the lever easy. Great colors, too. The rods on this set are stainless steel, not as light as titanium, but Salsa doesn't recommend using ti rods with suspension elements.

Strengths:    Tough and applies a lot of force, easy on the fingers

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Bought this to go along with my CK wheelset, I wanted a no nonsense skewer, and this is it. Red looks great, and I have never had any issues with it coming loose. Salsa makes good stuff.

I think the MSRP is off a bit on this skewer.
