SO I am wondering what everyone would recommend to replace the standard Mavic skewers that came with my Krysriums. I had ordered the skyline's but cancelled it due to some reviews that were less than positive.
These would be used on the Mavics as well as on a set of Reynolds SDV's that I would like to lighten up.

My black ORs have over 1000 miles and so far no issues to report. I did however put grease in the cam/lever section just so that it's easier to lift the lever. Now it's easier to release especially since I clamp my skewers on relatively tight. Clamping force seems just as good as M2s.
I believe Catbon Ti have some very light QR's coming out in various colours. Might be worth a look as I think they are lighter than the OMNI bolt-ons but are a QR.
I've just ordered some Bold Precision from Fairwheelbikes. They are almost identical to the Heylights and come in about 50g the pair (same as the Heylights).
I have had several customers telling me the KCNC work pretty well too.
Carbon-Ti is releasing a set of 26g quick releases: http://www.rouesartisanales.com/article-20364392.html
If you want lightest, then you want something without a QR lever, like something with nuts on both ends. e.g. Control Tech
My favourite now are the Zipp Ti skewers. Lardy at ~90g but they inspire me with confidence. Tune did not, in fact they scared me
Why would that be?
AC 16 front & AC 14 rear - both with titanium spindles for a tad over 50g.
Exactly my piece of cake.

They are light, secure and come in various colors. Good value for the price, distinct style makes them stand out from the norm.
