OneUp Components isn’t the first company to make replacement thru axles, but they do have a fairly specific reason for creating them. Apparently asked to create a stiffer and more durable axle by “top EWS Pro Riders”, OneUp was up to the task. Rather than just making a tooled axle that ended up lighter, OneUp went after the stiffer claim as well.
And of course they claim to have succeeded. The resulting axles are claimed to be 98% stiffer and stronger than a stock 15mm QR thru axle, while still knocking 20g off the weight. There’s the added benefit of the tooled axle being lower profile as well – if catching your fork’s QR lever on obstacles is a problem you face.
Sold in versions for both Fox and Rock Shox, in both Boost and non-Boost, the axles are for 15mm thru axle forks only and not compatible with the Rock Shox RS-1 or Fox 36 pinch bolt style forks. Each axle sells for $30, and they’re available in black along with red for Rock Shox and orange for Fox.
