Best Bike Multi-Tools – Top 6

Fitting perfectly in your saddle bag or back pocket, the multi-tool is the Swiss Army Knife of the cycling world. A bike multi-tool can be used to fix a serious mechanical problem or simply adjust your bike setup while out cycling. We’ve chosen 6 of our favourites that we believe tick all the boxes in terms of functionality, quality and price.

  • Essentials

There’s a handful of tools that are essential on any bike multi-tool. The majority of bolts on your bike are adjusted using Allen keys, otherwise known as hex keys. The most common sizes are 2mm through to 6mm, make sure when you buy a multi-tool that it has these! Crosshead screwdrivers and T25 are also important and can be found on any good multi-tool.

  • Emergency Tools

there are some problems that require special tools; a chain-breaker or spoke key for example. If you need to work on your chain or wheel at the roadside then chances are you’re in a bit of an emergency. High-end multi-tools cost a little extra but give you the peace of mind that you can fix almost any mechanical problem while out on the bike.

  • Added Extras

Basic multi-tools with less than 10 tools feature just the essentials but the all singing all dancing options feature some added extras. A knife, disc adjuster, chain holder and even a bottle open may not seem like things you’ll rarely need when running a roadside repair. That being said, if some thread on your jersey needs cutting or you simply want to crack open a cold one after a ride then you’ll be happy to have the tool to do it.
