No Maxle for the 7POINT rears for now. Enough people who want to run Saint out there that we want to keep it a plain thru axle.

There are some lightweight alloy thru axles out there. We spec them on some bikes in 06/07. On the 05 bikes we played it safe and went with the cromo but had no problems so switched to alloy for 06.

I bought the Azonic one and it works fine. Dual-nut type which requires a large open-end wrench. 17mm or something like that. Sort of a hassle to carry that wrench to the mountain; I wish it had a fancy single-allen release like the stock axle.

It is much, much lighter though; I don't own a scale for the exact difference.

Azonic rear axle

I've been running the Azonic aluminum axle for a while with no problems. Although I'm sort of a light-weight (160 w/ gear) and don't go big on the drops (max 5 feet). We do ride some pretty steep techy type stuff in SoCal, but I'm completely happy thus far with the Azonic axle.
