Lightweight tool

Coming in at a feathery 102g, this is the multi-tool for all the weight freaks out there. It packs a lot of functions for such a minimal weight and whereas you often have to trade off some rigidity for weight reduction, there’s no real compromise here.

The slim alloy body is very compact (it might be fiddly for anyone with less than nimble fingers) and, combined with the box section tool bases, it’s firm and effective to use with very little flex.

If you do happen to snap anything, replacement tools are available individually – including a rumoured additional T15 Torx upgrade for Formula brake users. The tyre lever is really an emergency option rather than one you’d want to use regularly.

The only feature that really lets this down is the chain tool. It’s too small and too minimal to hold the chain firmly in place, and it detracts from an otherwise well-specified and engineered tool.
