Agree that "hexkey" type skewers don't necessarily have more clamping power than traditional "lever" skewers, but they are often lighter or at least at the same weight do provide greater clamping force. Also more aero. Viewspeed are really good for this.

take a look at the newer Enve skewers for QR. holds tighter and feels much better than the one the OP shows in the pic.
Good call, thank you mate :thumbup:

Do you guys think a skewer with Dyneema instead of rod will be a good idea or possible at all?

Any thought about the DT system providing more power?? Is is true ??
This is what I use on my CX bike, since it's a pre-Thru-Axle design. I love them, they clamp really well, but ARE NOT light.
