It’s always great when good manufacturers develop high quality products that will make life easier. Recently a pretty exciting new tool set from SILCA passed by our digital desk – well actually, it’s two different multi-purpose tools. The SILCA T-Ratchet and TI-Torque titanium tools are the latest releases after the hugely popular HX-One Tool Kit. The reason why they are both exciting is because they take the existing tools that exist and improve, simplify and offer multi-purpose usage.
The T-Ratchet is 100mm long and can convert between several different positions including T-Handle tool, a thumb stabilized ratchet tool and a flag handled screwdriver. The Ti-Torque extension enables you to view live torque readings while using the T-Ratchet. The T-Ratchet is built on a 72-Tooth mechanism which is up to 2x the number of engagement points compared to most other mini-ratchet tools on the market.
Interestingly, they are launching the product on Kickstarter with an estimated delivery date in December of this year. The pricing is also quite good for a high quality manufacturer like SILCA has proven to be. For $85, you get the T-Ratchet, the Ti-Torque extender, 10 different steel bits including 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, T10, T20, T25 and PH2, a Hard Steel Magnetic Bit Extender, and a Waxed Canvas bag.
The reason why we’re a fan of this product is because of it’s compact, multi-function and durable construction. We’ve been finding that you, our readers, are increasingly getting interested in ‘long term’ and ‘survival’ based products, and this definitely meets that call. If you’re planning on using your bike as a long term travel option, and you’re looking for something convenient, compact and lightweight that is also multi-purpose… this meets all those requirements!
