Different from other similar products on the market, Hardlite axles with conical heads use an aluminum washer under the axle head to reduce friction on the frame.
We chose this option to protect your expensive fork, and also to provide a tighter fit giving you a stiffer interface. Our washers also prevent the axle from sticking when you want to remove it. We recommend applying a small amount of grease to the threads when installing. Installation is easy and requires only a 6 mm hex key.
Hardlite axles are a great replacement option for lost or damaged stock axles.
