I'm searching for a light ( lightest possible) option for internal cam quick release skewers.
Besides Original Shimano Dura Ace, do you know of any other brand-names ?
Thanks for the help guys :beerchug:

Louis :)

Tune AC14 at 49 grams. But from the looks of their 2017 catalog the AC-14 is no longer but the AC 16+17 combo looks to be 50 grams in a std road length.

I'm interested in this as well and have read a lot reliability issues with the Tune AC skewers. Anyone using them for awhile that have had good luck with them?

I've had 3 sets used on 3 bikes - one set is over 10 years old. No problems.

just make sure you keep them clean and corrosion-free. lube the cam area with dry lube.

never had issues with the other than when they first came out. the carbon part came out of the aluminum cam section. got it replaced.

Tune DC14 - 33g... I've been 107kg and smashed these to pieces, still 100% perfect.

I have tried light QRs (Aliens 4) but they didn't work for me. I'm at 62kg and am now using Campagnolo QRs and couldn't be happier. Mavic used to make an internal cam QR with titanium rods. I believe they weigh about 85g. for a set. It's hard to find new ones and the used ones are quite expensive still. I'm afraid to switch to anything else to save 40g. and then find out they don't work. I'll stay with my Campagnolo.

Been using Tune AC14 for over two years now, never had an issue with them.

What is the reason you focus on internal cam only?

This.

And the ability to use the same ( mostly rear) skewers on any training or light race wheelset, on any fixed trainer before a race, without having to worry about wheel, or skewer change...

Sounds a bit contradictive to me. You want a light one but a robust one . . . . :)

Not bad, OP just want the lightest of the "robust" one :)

Having said that, I have been using KCNC Ti Skewers (exposed cam) with no issue, I am 175lb ready to run, and not a sprinter by any measure.
