GW Switch Lever System

GW Switch Lever System

 
Award   WINNER 2017
Category   Bike Components
Company   GW Manufacturing

The Switch Lever is a patent pending system for thru-axle bikes and consists of two pieces, a Switch compatible axle, and the optional snap-on lever. The clean, simple, flush-mount lever can easily be rotated to the preferred nuetral/riding position, but it is the Switch compatible axle that makes this system special. The axle is a clean, simple, stand-alone thru-axle that can be used without the Switch lever. The price and specs are comparable to standard bolt-on thru-axles. A user or product manager can upgrade a bike/axle at any time by simply adding the lever which snaps into the head of the axle. The high end, hollow axles are available for any thru-axle size and spec.


Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Degree of innovation
  • Functionality


Jury Statement

The Switch Lever System is a well-conceived and straightforward solution for thru-axle systems. The idea of attaching a lever to a thru-axle is a breathtakingly simple solution to the thru-axle.
