... with 37g is certainly one of the lightest available storage cranes
Tune quick release - a class in itself. Super-light yet very high clamping force.
…with only 37g the DC12 belongs to the lightest available Thru-Axles on the market. Nonetheless the Thru-Axle does not underlies any weight limits and is usable without concerns.
Thru-Axles help stabilising the fork, the stiffer connection between hub and fork reduces twisting. With a Thru-Axle the wheel always sits perfect. Using a Quickrelease it can happen that the brake rubs, after removing and mounting the wheel.
TUNE is the first, who took up the thematic „weight optimizing at Thru-Axles“ successfully.
Like at our Quickreleases we use a excentric principle. In the excenter-seat, a kind of „pan“, a ball with a mounted carbon lever is embedded, which the axlehead is mounted excentric. The Thru-Axle can be opend and closed with the carbon lever.
Greases are regularly sticky and tend to collect dirt. TUNE uses therefore a special new developed and patented dry grease. Every open and moving part is treated with it. A molybdenum disulfide contaning grease (similar to graphite) gets bound to a varnish. After a muddy ride the spanner should not get greased, like a bike chain, it only has to be cleaned, if wanted…
The special varnish used not only provides a permanent greasing, it also enables the alignment of the lever, also in closed position. Over the time, where you had to fix the Thru-Axle complicate. The DC12 can be closed comfortably and turned into position when closed.
