The London-based company, Altum, has launched a new bike multi-tool via a Kickstarter campaign, which they say, “is the last bike tool you’ll ever need”.
According to Altum, the innovative 13 function multi-tool and accompanying tool roll, offers a portable yet powerful alternative to folding bike tools.
The MODUAL range consists of MTS, an innovative 13 function multi-tool and MTR, an accompanying tool roll that also provides an effective means of transporting a cyclist’s essential items. Each are comprehensive enough for use at home but compact enough for the road.
MTS is a modular system that utilises individual tool bits rather than pivoting allen keys. Four of these can be held internally so the tool can be configured to match the specific requirements of any bike. Tire levers snap magnetically to each side forming an ergonomic handle while the tool’s elongated body provides superior leverage. The head of the tool features two tool bit slots, one acting as a wrench and the other a screwdriver, allowing for easy access to any bolt.
MTR is a novel twist on the traditional tool roll and is constructed from hard-wearing Cordura. The top flap provides a workstation whether you are at home or on the roadside. It even features a hidden magnet so no longer is there a risk of tool bits getting lost. Internal sections are divided to store MTS (and its attachments) as well as other cycling essentials and there is an external strap for securing a spare inner tube. MTR is spacious when flat but when folded up forms a compact bundle that can be strapped under a saddle or sit perfectly in a jersey pocket.
