DT SWISS HR quick release RWS Thru Bolt TA10 135x10 mm The innovative wheel mounting system from DT Swiss! Instead of the eccentric clamping principle developed for racing bikes over 80 years ago, the clamping force of the RWS is built up by tightening a screw connection with a lever.
Operation is very simple: Tighten the tensioner by hand as tightly as possible by turning the lever clockwise (min. 15 Nm). Depending on the frame or fork construction, this can also be done by turning the lever several times. Then lift the lever and turn it to the desired position - the impeller is securely and firmly mounted.
Because there are no plastic parts in the power flow of the RWS, the clamping force is temperature-independent and the RWS is therefore 100% suitable for disc brakes!
By directly transferring the leverage to the thread, the RWS can achieve a clamping force that is up to 50% higher than with conventional quick releases. This is not only safer, but also increases rigidity, which is particularly noticeable with disc brakes.
The DT Swiss Thru Bolt optimizes the RWS system even more. Instead of the regular 5 mm thick quick release axle , a 10 mm thru bolt axle used at the rear. Together with the DT Swiss Thru Bolt hub, an even better connection to the frame and fork is guaranteed than with the standard RWS or other quick releases. The RWS Thru Bolt System combines the advantages of a fixed Thru Bolt axle with the easy handling of a quick release. The RWS Thru Bolt System is 100% compatible with any standard frame or fork that normally works with a quick release.
