Topeak Link 11 chain tool - in brief £16.99

Folding tool for multi-speed chains

BikeRadar score 3/5

The Link 11 chain tool from Topeak combines the functionality of a larger, home workshop tool with the convenience of a foldable multi-tool number. 

It’s roughly the same size as a cigarette lighter, so it fits in a pack or pocket very easily and means you won’t have to rely on smaller, fiddly chain tools such as the ones often found on multi-tools.

Once opened out, its 75mm length means there’s plenty to hold onto when tackling stiffer links, although the metallic edges of the casing do dig into your hand a little. The extractor pin is driven by the 4mm Allen key on the handle, within which sits a little chain hook that makes the whole operation even easier.
