The Daysaver multitool with the Coworking5 (prototype)

Press Release: Daysaver


Coworking5: The innovative extension from the makers of the Daysaver multitool. Back in 2020, Daysaver launched an innovative cycling multitool offering 9 tools at only 39 grams. Now, one year later, comes an extension with 5 additional high-quality tools.

The introduction of the Daysaver last year was a huge success for Daysaver with an amazing response from the market. The worldwide community reacted with enthusiasm to the launch of this super lightweight quality multitool but also asked for a chain breaker and a tire lever to complete the perfect on the go toolset.


You wanted 2 - we give you 5
The makers of Daysaver have heard you and are bringing not only the two tools you asked for. They add 3 more. So when the Coworking 5 is launched on Kickstarter in October, you'll get:

- a chain breaker
- a tire lever
- a valve tool
- a spoke wrench
- a chain link holder

At an incredible weight of only 30 grams.
The tools of the Coworking5 (prototype)


Workshop quality on the ride

The Coworking5 comes with all the features that also characterised the Daysaver. Workshop quality that won't leave you hanging, handiness paired with the haptics of a professional tool, compact, versatile and ultra-light.

Workshop quality with no compromises

The chainbreaker comes with an innovative chain positioning system that is compatible with all popular chains from 9 to 12 speed. Combined with the Daysaver's lever, you can apply the necessary force to easily open even sluggish chains.

The innovative chain positioning for 9 and 12 speed chains

Handy and strong

The tire lever is compact, but thanks to the glass-fibre reinforced polyamide it can withstand enormous forces without breaking or damaging the rim. With such a strong tyre lever you only need one lever to get even the most stubborn tire off or onto your wheels.

With only one lever you can get any tire off the rim

The perfect match

The Coworking5 and the Daysaver Multitool are a perfect match and fit seamlessly. Together, the 14 functions weigh an incredible 70 grams. But the Coworking5 can also complement other multitools.

The ultimate combination: Coworking5 (prototype) & Daysaver multitool

The new Mount Cradle3

You can still carry both tools in your pocket, jersey or backpack. Daysaver wouldn't be Daysaver if they didn't also offer you the perfect mount for the bike frame. Held in place by magnets, you can simply click the tools into the mount and use the strap to attach a tube or other equipment rattle-free to it.

Tested under hardest conditions

Since the Daysaver Team has been working with the Gehrig twins for almost a year, the Coworking5 was tested under the toughest conditions of the EWS racing series. Caro and Anita helped to optimise the tools and test their limits, so that you will receive a durable and professional tool that can really save the day in unpleasant situations on the road.

In October on Kickstarter

The prototype phase has been completed and all tests passed with flying colors. The Coworking5 can go into production! You can make this first series a reality with your contribution on Kickstarter. Become a part of this exciting project. For those who missed the Daysaver Kickstarter last year, special bundles with the Daysaver multitool and the new Coworking5 are offered. The start of the funding is on October 12th.

Don't miss it! Subscribe for notification before the start of the campaign or fund your own Coworking5 on Kickstarter!

Cooperation with Pump for Peace

As it is important to Daysaver to take on social responsibility, they decided to support the Pump for Peace project by Velosolution. Pump for Peace is a global initiative focussing on building pump tracks in underprivileged communities, with aims of making cycling and action sports more accessible than ever before. After the campaign, and upon successful funding Daysaver will donate an amount equivalent to a percentage of the sold pledges to Pump for Peace. So getting a Coworking5 will not only save your day but also provide great days for people around the globe.

 mavic ma40 mtb rim from the early 90s. you cant get the tyre off the rim with a tyre lever, unless you use a scaffolding pole for leverage...

 I'm sure it works great with lightweight tyres and no inserts. I'm pretty sure I could have removed and fitted the set-up in the Daysaver video with no lever.

 @daysaver: Notice no tire insert. And seems like a nice compliant tire rim combo he chose.

 @scantregard: I remember the feeling of revelation when I got my hands on a set of Park Tools big, metal, dh tire levers for the first time in the early 2000s. Game. Changer.

I still use them to help on my Nobl wheels sometimes. Don't need them to get the bead off the rim, but sometimes the bead doesn't want to break away from the sidewall and they're the only things that help.

 @daysaver: I like this tool a lot. It's a beautiful design. One thing that scares me a little bit is the pop and slide technique. I once ripped a brand new tire bead sliding the tire lever along the edge like that and never did it again. I usually pry the tire over the rim in two spots and push the bead off in downward motion. It's a PIA but has worked for the last 15 years.

 @dirtdiggler: thats interesting, we didn't experience such a thing during our tests and it never happend to any of us in general. I can think of 2 things: the tirelever had sharp edges or/and there was a lot of force involved when sliding. wich probably was needed because there was not enough room to pop the tire over the rim, wich can be greatly improved when pressing the tire on both sides all around in the middle of the rim, this frees up room to wiggle. please let us know your thoughts about, we all are still learning :-)

 If you can't remove a tire with only one tire lever (regardless of casing or insert), your technique is wrong. You only ever need one tire lever.

 @scantregard: what is it with Mavic?... I have a XA rim that has claimed the lives of many innocent tyre levers in combination with a super gravity Magic Mary (in this case, I think it's the tyre not the rim!)
  • 3 0
 Yeah, I rarely can get a tire off with just one lever. However, you can just carry a second tire lever of your choice, even a third or fourth tire lever. Problem solved.
  • 2 0
 @IluvRIDING Sh*t.... Sometimes I need 3 levers to get a tire off. If it's tubeless, with Stan's and hasn't been taken off the rim in 6-12 months or so.
  • 2 0
 @tacklingdummy: ya, this is the real answer. ..Rather than bothering to challenge someone who suggests they can pull any tire off any rim even with an insert.

Still really tempting to offer up a newish assagai DH casing on a spank rim with cushcore for a demonstration though. We could sit back with a beer and watch the show.

 @Kark: hence me "subscribing" to this show of manliness known as the comments Beer

Someone several weeks back was bragging LOUDLY about such. So I asked if he could throw my last generation Brand New Shorty on a new DT E532 w/ Tannus Tubeless insert.

A portable, high volume air compressor, his handy dandy big bottle of soapy water, a snapped Park lever & 3 other levers all in the rim at the same time with me squeezing two sides of the tire on and him and another dude running the 3 levers (and 3 "I gotta let the tank fully charged" shots with the compressor later") and buddy that tire just jumped right on around 8 minutes later.

 I'm sure by the time the price is set for the MSRP, you probably won't need any levers to get the tire off your rim.

 A multitool with loose bits is a big no for me.

But no need to worry, replacements are available for a "mere" 5-15 USD plus shipping.

 Remember the days when you read about a new product and could go down the shop and then buy it?

There's so many adverts on here for Kickstarters projects rather than actual product releases.

If I pledge on this, I will probably have done at least 100 rides before it gets released and that I'll have forgotten about what I even thought was a good idea , after carrying my trusty Silca around all the while and not worrying one bit about the weight of it.

 Hmmm....this is VERY similar to a Blackburn tool issued in the late 90’s - a brilliant tool and I still both have it and use it. And the Blackburn one has two levers...this new one looks good...and regret the Blackburn one no longer available. As for price, I base it on what I would pay if I was 20km out with a broken chain and nothing to put it together with. And that changes with weather. Bitter deep winter ride, no tools and a broken chain, deep in the forest. 20gbp easily parted with....

 "As for price, I base it on what I would pay if I was 20km out with a broken chain and nothing to put it together with".

Wise words. I think two levers is best if you're going to be off hours from the trailhead.

 I still have the Blackburn. And a couple of other BB multi tools. Great quality.

 This is one of the more well thought out tools I've seen in quite a while. I'm generally excited for this one.

 Except you need to buy the first multi tool to even use the second. Notice the chain breaker isn’t usable unless you have the lever that’s not included.

 @stevemokan: The Coworking5 includes the lever as well as the chain breaker. And of course you can use it also with other multitools than Daysaver.

 @daysaver: why someone need valve tool and spoke wrench trail side?

I'm super interested in the following tools and already at the wait list, however for me, spoke tool was always a valve tool as well, and I never use those trail side, only at the shop/hime/parking lot;

 @nickmalysh: lots of times you notice your spokes super loose trailside. Nice to have a tool for that.

 you could pack an extra tire lever, shouldn't be such a problem Smile

 It does say above that you can get any tire off the rim with only one tire lever. In my opinion that isn't true. Who would risk only taking one lever on a ride?
  • 8 4
 @dglobulator: I've only ever used one tyre lever, if any at all. Tubeless DH casings, road clinchers, anything. It's all technique after years in bike shops. This tool looks sweet, but strapping an extra lever on isn't the end of the world either.
  • 5 1
 @dglobulator: Without inserts I haven’t used a tire lever in over 20 years. I stopped carrying them about 15 years ago. It’s all technique. With inserts I could have 10 tire levers and not get the tire off sometimes.
  • 2 0
 @daysaver: Ha ha, thanks for that, definitely made me laugh at 1.59 where you insert the lever then it jumps to you successfully running it around the released bead. I must admit I currently can't watch it with the volume on so maybe there was a reason given for this in the narration. Without volume it looks like an old Tommy Cooper trick :-)

 Finally! This is what I have been waiting for. Only thing missing is a pair of pliers and it would be perfect
  • 3 0
 Good call. I carry a leatherman and a multitool, but would love a pliers-based bike-specific multi tool since I rarely need the can opener, flat blade screwdriver, scissors, metal file, etc., on bike rides. The knife blade is also nice for cutting tire plugs and stabbing yetis and cougars
  • 2 1
 @VtVolk: wolftooth 8bit pack pliers are better imho.
  • 1 1
 Same! Throw in the the Wolftooth pliers and hex/torx driver of your choice and it's a complete set. I've been looking for more ergonomic tools to slowly replace my folding one. My cheap folding Filzer does everything, but the layout makes it clumsy to use. I've considered stash tools like the EDC, but they're a bit cumbersome to take out of their elegant layout and not much more ergonomic than my existing folding tool.

The spoke key + chain breaker combo just makes too much sense, but they all come attached to folding multi tools atm, or they aren't compatible with modern chains

 Thanks to everyone who founded the tool at Kickstarter. We reached the goal in the first2 hours! So the Coworking 5 is becoming a reality. For those who haven't got it yet: There are still Early Bird pledges available. You can find the link to the campaign the article.

 Looks well made and solid. Stem mounted multi tools are too small for my liking and the typical multi tool are cumbersome in tight or awkward areas like saddle clamps and shimano ispec EV
  • 8 5
 Who uses two tire levers to get a tire off? Seems like more work
  • 12 0
 There are several wheel/tire combinations that demand two steel-core (DH) tire levers. Or some people are just small and aren't built like gorillas. Just because it's easy on your bike(s) doesn't mean it's easy for everyone.

 I love bike tool porn, and this is pretty cool. However, for actual preparedness, I’d still choose the Topeak Ninja 16 and one blue Park lever.

 It is always surprise me, racers on dh casing with cushcore and spare tube? It is faster to finish ride without air in the tire, rather put tube trail side

 For long races and In between long stages where no mechanical assist available. The chain tool could prove vital to get you you up and running.
