Ordinary multitools for the bicycle are available in all shapes and sizes. But no matter how mature the tools may seem, many disadvantages are still unsolved. The often foldable tools are often tricky to use, because of their shape many places on the bike cannot be reached at all, they are usually heavy and large and some systems are tied to a holder in the handlebar, stem or crank.
The founders of Daysaver — all of them passionate bikers and racing cyclists themselves — want to clean up the mess. Together with PB Swiss they have developed a multi-tool that is as big as the classic Allen key, weighs only 45 grams and provides 9 tools.
The basis for the new multitool was the minimal form factor of a classic Allen key, which ensures ideal accessibility and with which the correct torque can be applied — via the two different lever lengths. The innovation lies ultimately in the interleaving of 4 bits. Two on each side, which can be turned over and inserted into each other. This makes the Daysaver a multi-talent that has 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 Allen, 25 Torx and a slotted screwdriver at the ready.
The Daysaver is so small that you can easily carry it in your jersey or trouser pocket. But if you prefer to transport the Daysaver on the frame, the minimalistic Daysaver Mount gives you the possibility to attach the tool to the bottle cage. You don’t have to do without the bottle cage, because it is simply mounted above the mount!
The prototype phase has been completed and all tests passed with flying colors. The Daysaver Multitool can go into production! To make this first series possible, this campaign is currently running on Kickstarter. For about 65 Euro the clever tool can be pre-ordered there, with the Daysaver Mount about 92 Euro are due. At first sight a lot for such a small tool – but new tools, Swiss quality and a lifetime warranty speak for the Daysaver!
