Help again :shock:

Zipp v Enve v Reynolds QR Skewers. All Ti.

Reynolds the cheapest, Enve lightest and most expensive possibly, and Zipp the most aero (seriously they claim 2 watts) :lol:

Any of them a bit dodgy and to be avoided? All around 65g for the pair.

I vote for the zipps twice. Once because I got them and have had zero problems for the 9 months or so I've had them. 69g actual weight, second reason is I paid $72 on ebay for them and you've found them for $47!! :evil:

I've had multiple Reynolds and Zipp skewers (different wheel sets). I've never had an issue with any of them. I don't have any experience with Enve skewers, but between Zipp and Reynolds, my vote is for Zipp, simply because they're lighter.

Say you had to buy two sets and the total cost for the Zipps over the Reynolds came to £20 / 25USD, would you still go for the Zipps?

Dura Ace! If you don't mind a couple of grams extra anyway.

+1. I've tried lightweight QRs but for some reason I can't get the wheels to stay centered in the dropout no matter how hard I clamp down. So I'm only running heavy QRs from now on. I'm a lightweight with low power output. I don't know how others report no issues with lightweight QRs. Don't you think there's a good reason why Shimano and Campy don't use titanium shafts and external cam designs?
