The Cyclist’s Swiss Army Knife: The Victorinox Bike Tool

victorinox bike took tool
The Victorinox Bike Tool is the perfect answer for anybody who has ever taken his or her bike on the road and had some sort of mishap. We can’t tell you how many times we’ve been out biking and we could have used this handy tool. Born out of the uber functional Swiss accessory of choice, the Swiss Army Knife, this tool combines the convenience of your classic pocket knife with all the tools needed to keep your bike running, whether you’re going up rough terrain, speeding through city streets, or cruising on a beach boardwalk. Just what does it have?

According to company spokesperson Ilissa Goldenberg, “The Victorinox Swiss Army Bike Tool contains many of the implements standard to bike tools. The bike tool was designed to respond to almost any need and most common on-the-go emergency adjustments, repairs and maintenance tasks.  Weighing in at 3.5 ounces and measuring 3.98 x 1.42 x 0.83 inches, it’s built to stow away neatly into bike saddle bags, hydration and day packs, or even in a jersey pocket. Common standard bike sizing of adjustment fittings was considered when offering the assorted tool bits.”

If you need to tighten or loosen a screw or make simple repairs, just carry around the Victorinox Bike Tool with you and you’ll be all set — but prepared to visit a bike shop if you get a flat tire. That’s one thing this useful object can’t repair. Now if only we had at that time we were biking around Bushwick and had that screw come loose. Keep your eye out for this baby. Victorinox can’t seem to hold on to them, but the brand also has tons of other interesting accessories to lust after.

“The bike tool caters to a specific group of outdoor enthusiasts — cyclists and leisurely bike riders — and was a natural extension for the Swiss Army Knife collection,” says Goldenberg.
