  • Patent number: 10293638
    Abstract: A quick release device for at least partially muscle-powered two-wheeled vehicles, having an axle unit and a clamping mechanism. The axle unit includes an axle extending in the axial direction, a locking device at the first end of the axle unit and a fastener at a second end of the axle unit. The clamping mechanism is suitable for mounting and demounting the axle unit to a two-wheeled vehicle. The clamping mechanism has an operating lever and a clamping component, the latter is non-rotatably coupled with the axle unit and is decoupled from the axle unit. The clamping mechanism has an intermediate device with an actuating unit, which ensures in a first position a non-rotatable connection of the clamping component and the operating lever, and in a second position, allows the operating lever to pivot relative to the clamping component while the clamping component is non-rotatably coupled with the axle unit.
