Quick Release Skewer for New Hubs

I'm building a set of road wheels using the Bitex hubs, but need a pair of quick releases preferably in sliver. Can I assume any road skewers for 100/130 mm spacing with 5 mm axles will do the trick? I think I prefer the internal cam type. Thanks for any help.

I’m a big fan of the Ultegra quick release. Have them on both of my bikes after playing around with light weight versions and experiencing some failures. The weight gain is negligible but they are reliable and they were cheaper as well.

Yes they will work.
