Replacing rear axle

My kid crashed and broke the rear axle on his bike. Couldn't figure out was wrong at first since he bent the hanger, knocked the wheel out of true, and broek a bone in his foot to boot. The wheel wouldn't stay centered in the drop-outs, so Last night I took out the skewer and axle came out in 2 pcs.

It's 145mm long and 10mm diameter. I think this is the right axle ?

Wheel Master Quick Release Axle - RR, 10 X 26 X 135 X 146.

can anyone explain why there are 4 different dimensions? I get the 10 and the 146 but what is 26 x 135?

Also saw some reviews on amazon that said this bent easily. Is there a better choice than wheelmaster?

The 26 is 26 threads per inch, commonly used by Campagnolo or Joytech. Another common size is 10x1, which is Shimano and several french hubs
Your hub could be either, there are many mfgrs.Your 146, is the total axle length, assuming it's a QR. The 135 is the outer locknut distance. (outside to outside). You have a freewheel type system, because the axle is supported up under the freewheel, it is prone to bending/ breaking. The freehub system gives better axle support, and riders tend to have a lot less problems with bending/ breaking axles. Wheel master is just the wheel builder, not a component, per say.

ok, now i'm impressed. how the hell did you know it was a freewheel? I didn't even look but thought no-one made those anymore? Especially not on better bikes and this is not old , probably 7 or 8 year old K2.
no point in replacing the axle IMO, my kids 6 foot tall and 200 pounds, he'll just bend it again . Hell we used ot bend these awful things on our road bikes back in the day.
I'm better off getting a new wheel and 7 speed cassette. Darn-it! but .........
thanks for saving me from wasting 10 bucks

The fact that he bent the axle says freewheel type all over it.

LOL, I guess it does. Explains why I haven't seen a bent/broken axle for years, or a freewheel

New back wheel w- Alex double wall rim/ lower end shimano hub + Sram PG730 7-speed cassette set me back $69. delivered. Not terrible for new parts and I know it will last for a while.
