Pro Super Compact Mini Tool review£6.99

Bargain multi-tool

BikeRadar score4/5

For a penny less than seven quid you can’t go wrong with this straightforward multi-tool.

The set screws retaining the tools were perfectly adjusted so the screwdrivers remained stable when attempting to loosen stubborn screws.

The frame of the multi-tool is formed by a crude looking ‘S’ shaped steel bar so we were expecting some twisting when applying high forces, such as tightening or loosening a pedal with an 8mm Allen key.

Thankfully, the tool handled the most formidable of roadside tasks: loosening a pedal with titanium threads, though a lot more force was required than with the longer tools that give better leverage such as the Topeak Hexus or Passport CDW.

There’s no spoke key, but the inclusion of the T25 Torx is commendable at this price. You also get 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8mm Allen keys, and straight blade and Phillips head screwdrivers.
