My wife's bike has a Rockshox Sektor on it and it has one of the expanding collet axle like this one

Me and Her both hate this axle as the corners of the area you use to loosen or tighten it have gotten bent up and sharp, as we have to take the front wheel off every time we go ride as we use fork up roof rack trays.

So now on to the question can we replace it with the new style one like this one:

******UPDATE****** The axle Part Number from when this was originally talked about, and figured out has changed to 00.4318.005.006 the link for the part on BTI's Website is BTI | Rock Shox Maxle-Ultimate Road Q/R 15x100mm T-A kit******UPDATE******

i dont think you can, just by looking at the picture. it looks like the older style is tapered where it seats to the dropouts, where the newer style looks to be flat.

We may end up being the first to take the plunge, I am sort of hoping that someone owns a pike and also has access to the sektor that could try it out without having to spend the money.

So I managed to stumble across someone out on the trail that had a pike so I asked if i could try his axle in my wife's fork and he said sure and let me try and everything seemed to fit so we ordered one from the local bike shop.

I picked it up and installed it today and everything fits fine and here is a picture.

Good to hear.

I ordered one for my Reba recently. It's funny, sometimes I feel like the best upgrades are always small, usability-related things.

Resurrecting and old thread since I've just run into a problem trying to upgrade to the new lever. I was sent a 00.4318.005.001 Maxle Ultimate which appears too long to replace my 15x100 Maxle Lite. Did I get sent the wrong part or do I need a different part number?

What fork are you currently running? The Maxle ultimate is for the Pike RCT3/RC/DJ and RS-1 forks.

Ok, thanks for the feedback since I'm also looking for the new lever (version B?) 15x100 Maxle Lite 15mm that the OP found. Can anyone confirm the correct part number?

I contacted the seller and they reiterated that 00.4318.005.001 is for Pike/RS1 only. It's possible that RockShox changed part numbers and they certainly changed the name from Maxle Lite to Maxle Ultimate. The Maxle Lite XC, which is what I originally have, seems to have a newer version called Maxle Lite 15mm.

I'll check the dimensions of my Maxle against the 00.4318.005.006 part that you posted. The first difference that stands out to me is the threaded section of 12mm on the road Maxle versus 9mm on the off-road applications.

Okay, I just received 00.4318.005.006 which looks like the correct replacement with the new style lever. So, maybe Rockshox changed their part numbers or whatever, but 00.4318.005.001 is NOT the replacement for the old 00.4318.005.002 Maxle Lite. Order 00.4318.005.006 also described as "Maxle-Ultimate Road 15x100mm."

Awsome, enjoy the new axle, I will put an update in the original post so that no one else makes the same mistake. Shame they made it so complicated.
