Topeak Mini 9 Pro Carbon multi-tool$51.58

Compact trail tool

BikeRadar score3/5

Weighing in at a teeny 73g and measuring just 75mm long, Topeak’s new Mini 9 Carbon Pro could be the perfect tool for sticking in your back pocket in case of emergencies on the trail. As the name implies, it features nine tools – 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5 and 6mm Allen keys, a Phillips screwdriver, a fold-out plastic tyre lever (which is surprisingly good), and a metal lever, which is sturdy but best kept for emergencies to avoid damaging your rim.

The Allen keys are high quality, and despite the tool’s diminutive size, it’s no bother to get enough leverage to undo or tighten anything. It’s not what you’d build a bike with, but for a compact trail tool it works fine.
