The best lightweight skewers are bolt-on IMO. I use KCNC bolt-ons for everyday and View-speeds for special occassions

I tried Tune DC 100/135 (37g) but over few months creaking on the back wheel is started. On every ride, so it became tiresome.
I have the same QR, no creaking...

Same. Another vote for KCNC. Especially in gold.
So the gold ones creak less than the other ones? :roll:

The skewers are only one piece of the creak problem. Just because they don't creak with rider A doesn't mean they won't with rider B.

If you have them over. let's say, 1000km and not throwing less watts than I do (I don't know my output, but it's not huge, that's for sure), then you are lucky. Of course, some other things can cause that, but still...
One of best looking skewers, though.

I have them over 1000 km, I don't know my power output, I presume it's not big, I'm just an amateur :)
