Save weight and stay strong
The DT Swiss RWS Ti Road Skewer is ideal for any road rider looking to save weight without sacrificing strength and convenience. DT Swiss uses high-strength 6/4 Grade 5 titanium for the shafts and the lever arms are lightweight skeletonized aluminum. The Ti Road Skewer features DT Swiss’s Ratcheting Wheelmounting System, which provides up to 50% greater clamping force than conventional quick release and it’s easy to use. Simply turn the lever clockwise until tight, then press the red button to release the ratchet and position the lever where you see fit.

Don't skimp on your Skewers
These skewers are sold individually. I have either these or the steel version on my road and cross bikes. The ratcheting lever is the coolest feature, but you have to be careful not to over tighten them. One of my bikes has a slotted rear drop out and I think these skewers and the bulky old shimano ones are the only skewers burly enough to hold my rear wheel in place. Checking the tightness of my skewers and seeing if my wheels are sitting square in the drop outs has become a pre ride ritual for me.
Is this coming with 2 for $90 or just 1 for $90?

What stops you from over tightening these...
What stops you from over tightening these skewers? Oh wait im Robocop and I have a torque meter in my hand. No seriously how do I know when its at 15Nm
With the small lever on the DT Swiss RWS, most people would not be strong enough to tighten the lever beyond 15Nm. The same limiting factor exists on standard quick releases.
With respect to Mike, I have to agree it's a legitimate concern. 15nm IS probably tighter than the average person would hand-tighten the thing but, QR skewers CAN absolutely fail from over-tightening. It makes a loud bang...
