    Skewers: RWS (DT swiss)

    I read here and there that the classic enclosed cam skewers are slightly better then the exsposed cam. I have on my DT Swiss road wheels the RWS skewers. Any comment or opinion?

    My point is that they are quite heavy (circa 130-140 the pair), so if they are similar in functionality to the enclosed cam skewers that's fine, but if they are similar to the exsposed cam why not to move to a lighter skewers (like KCNC Ti or the Planet X Ti skewers). Suggestions?

    I never tried RWS Skewers so I can't tell my opinion about them. I also bought my Titanium Skewers recently, and rode on them twice (because of weather here in Poland)

    I was really curious about them and I think I read almost every possible review about them. They convinced me to buy so I did.
    While we are trying to make our bikes a bit more light, why shouldn't I spend just a few bucks on titanium skewers.

    Mine are slightly different, but they're still the ratcheting kind. I love them, they're much easier to use than the others I've worked with. They're still quite light for skewers - lighter than alloy/steel ones I've felt. But if you absolutely have to save a few grams, why not burn the money and buy new ones?
    I have a single track mind
