Syndex - Axle Diameter

By: Keedan Mitchell  

Axle Diameter

There are only 2 axle diamters.
Most commonly found, is the 8mm axle. This was the only size until 2016 when Ethic DTC Created the 12mm Standard, consisting of a 12mm axle, and decks, forks, wheels, and bearings, to work around it.
The benefit to the 8mm axle is that it is a more commonly found size outside of scootering. This means it is very easy to find replacement bolts and nuts if you don't have access to a scooter store near you.
The benefit to the 12mm axle is that it is stronger, and requires a bigger bearing which creates a smoother, faster ride.
