I've seen some tools in my time, I've even had to work with a few of them and still do today and I'll tell you now, some of them are as useful as a chocolate fireguard.
Not Micki Kozuscheck of Lezyne though.Like your Grandma we all know the guys at SRAM are wise cookies and as she always told you, "A bad workman always blames his tools".
SRAM purchased Truvativ four years ago from Micki Kozuscheck. No doubt he earned a few dollars and whilst you and me would of been off to Vegas and the Crazy Horse II (Yes I know it's closed down now). Old Micki joined up with his old mucka from Truvativ, a Mr. Dillon Clapp and they started to make some beautiful products that are now hitting our European shores.Lezyne Stainless 12 Multitool retails for £19.99
Sexy? You gotta love that neoprene style wrap around mini skirt, didn't Kylie Minogue wear something like that? Keep that in place whilst in your shorts pocket in case of any crashes. This will stop a 4mm Allen key from skewering you silly.
Now take a look at the way each tool is attached: Most manufacturers use the "Wrap Around" style of securing their tools to the end axle. Lezyne cold forge and then CNC from Stainless Steel each tool and manufacture a hole at the end. The end axle slides through said hole, this makes them lighter and stronger than your conventional multi-tool.
