Lezyne SV Tool Review...
SV10 Multi-Tool review by Wojtek Wysocki for the Atlanta Sports Gear Examiner. Thanks Wojtek!
Andy Johnston has spent most of his life in the bike world, and over 20 as a Mechanic. There are a myriad of multi-tools out there, but few as finely crafted such to appreciate the detail as the Lezyne SV multi-tool.
The SV 10, as implied, includes 10 tools: hex wrenches of 2,3,4,5,6 and 8, Phillips screwdriver, T-25 and T-30 torx wrenches, and a chain breaker for 9 & 10 speed chains. Price is $45.
All bits are stainless steel for extreme durability and rust resistantance. Forged Stainless steel bits means a hard, long lasting tool and no rounded off corners for the hex wrenches. Side plates and chain breaker are CNC aluminum to keep the weight at 101 grams.
The chain breaker is the most ingenious component for its simplicity and lightweight. A threaded pushpin attaches to the tool and a machined aluminum chain breaker body threads onto that. Chain pin removal is easy, but to further save grams, there is no method for reattaching a pin. It is assumed most racer-oriented trail repairs will be made with a master link, so be sure to have a spare or two on hand. Lower down the Lezyne line the chain breakers do have this option.
