Shimano's quick release skewers are widely regarded as the best on the market. The enclosed cam design holds wheels more securely than most "lightweight" skewers, the lever is easy to use, and the finish beautifully matches Shimano components.
The XT Skewers are sold individually. Choose either a Front or Rear model for traditional MTB and many cyclocross hubs (100mm, 135mm). Steel shafts. Black. Claimed weight: 57/64g.

Campy no longer makes their stainless steel chrome quick release skewers. I have some on my old steel Colnago. I wanted some internal cam skewers for my newer carbon bike. Shimano is about the only company that has internal cal skewers. I have a Campy bike, but these work just as well as the Campy's. Yeah, they are a tad heavy, but Shimano thinks that quick release skewers are a safely item and weight for this component is secondary. They don't require a lot of effort to lock down. Smooth action, well make, durable, and will look nice with any bike. These are the best. I think the Ultegra Quick releases weigh a couple more grams than the Dura Ace. Great deal. This is coming from a Campy guy.
