Crank Brothers Pixl

Our review

Simple yet effective but very pricey

CrankBrothers’ Pixl tool provides all the essential Allen keys – from 2mm to 8mm – with no fiddly snap-on attachments. We like the 137g weight and compact 65mm length, which makes the tool perfect for stashing in your pocket if you’re out for a quick spin.


All the bits are indexed and flip into place when opened – it’s an innovative touch that helps minimise faffing. We like the inclusion of three screwdrivers along with the T10 and T25 Torx keys. We’ve deformed the T25 Torx key slightly already but it still works fine. It’s the price that’s the real hang-up here.
