The GT Titanium skewers are made in the US. The lever, made of aluminum, has a 70mm length and 1/2" height, and is an external cam shape at the pivot pin to constrict on the axle. The lever rotates against a concave washer, that rests against a 19mm diameter contact washer that grips the hub. Using two washers in this position equalizes the tension as the lever is closed. The pivot pin, housed in the lever is made of stainless steel, and fastened to a Titanium skewer rod. The nut is machined from aluminum rod. It has a 19.3mm diameter with a serrated contact surface. The exterior of the nut has two rows of knurls, between which is a rubber O-ring. The O-ring and the knurls provide a good grip while tightening. The volute springs are of flat spring steel. The front skewer weighs 47 grams, the rear weighs 50.5 grams. The GT Techshop Ti skewers are anodized in Blue, Black, Lavender or Silver.
