Anyone order them yet?

Hmmm?

I am intrigued...

I don't see anything called "Streeters" on Extralite's site. What are they?

Weight looks nice!

Edit: it doesn't let you link to the page. They are a set of quick releases in the webshop

Here then: http://www.extralite.com/products/streeters.htm I agree, these are LIGHT with titanium rods front and rear! Heavy price tag though.

Crazy light, but somehow much more comforting than skewers using 2 different materials that are bonded together.

Scary light indeed. Cool to see they did it without the use of carbon.

i like them, nice weight with the levers included
i never trusted my tune skyline as the fixed cap came loose of the axle and they require a silly tool to remove your wheel
at 119 eurie very pricy but not impossible to buy

The Alien 2s are considered heavy by today's standards of minimal quick releases but they are beautifully machined components, which are trustworthy and changing a wheel under duresss is easy with the full sized lever. They have this cool design element that keeps the springs in place (both sides) when you remove the end nut. They work well on MTBs if you are still running QRs. Colors available too.

No, I don't work for nor am I associated with Extralite - other than being a satisfied customer through the years. They make beautiful parts and Sergio Riva is a nice guy with a sense of style.
