Small, sleek, compact and easy to store, the Lezyne Torque Drive tool is a simple but elegant solution for ensuring bolts are fastened to the correct specifications.
The mini torque wrench features machined aluminum construction with a removable t-handle and a bit holder and a wide select of bits. The Torque Drive Tool includes a Hex 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6mm plus a Torx T10, T25 and T30 which should cover a wide range if not all stem and seat bolts. There’s even a flat head and phillips head bit included (though I can’t imagine a bike part utilizing that interface) to make the mini tool more useful.
While the tool is nicely executed and aesthetically pleasing, the included padded carrying case is what nails the final presentation. The entire package is small enough to fit into a front pocket which means it easily stores in a gear bag, ensuring stem and saddle adjustments on the road are properly executed.
It’s almost small enough to take on a ride but as a minimalist there are far better multi-tools more suited to the task. For frequent road trippers like us though, it fits nicely into our road trip tool box and can double as a replacement for my t-handled hex wrenches.
An integrated magnet holds the bits in place enhancing usability; most importantly, having the Torque Drive on hand (and using it) should lessen the chances of cracking a Thomson faceplate, (or similar parts) which are one of those components worth fastening properly.
