15mm Through Axle

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of upgrading my MTB, and the next part I am buying is a new front shock.

 

I would like to know if a 15mm through axle will work with my standard hubs or do I need to upgrade/change it. I know the standard skewer is like 5mm so obviously something would have to change.

 

Any advise would be appreciated.

What is your current hub?

 

XT/XTR has a specific QR15 hub, while Chris King, Hope and I9 (among others) are convertable.

some hubs can be modified - many of the sealed bearing units are pretty well modifiable.

well I replaced my cassette last night and saw that it does not have sealed bearings.

 

I see new Hubs in my future...
