The DT Swiss RWS Thru Bolt provides a new take on the axle/skewer system. Laufradbefestigungs system. In other words, a Ratchet Wheelmounting System (RWS). It has the look of a quick release (minus the springs), but in place of a lever attached to a cam, there's a lever attached to a bolt head.

Turn the lever clockwise to tighten. When there is sufficient resistance (15nm), stop turning. Press the red button to position the lever in a place where it won't get knocked around. You're done, and the benefits are pretty obvious. It provides up to 50% greater clamping force than with a conventional quick release, not to mention the added stiffness associated with any rear thru-axle system. And, they make it super easy to pop your wheels off your bike. The oversized shafts are high-strength yet light aluminum, and the lever arms are reinforced carbon. Want it off? Just start turning the lever counter-clockwise to loosen.
