Victorinox Bike Tool

While classic Swiss Army knives handle a multitude of tasks, specialization is increasingly seen in small, portable tools – and with good reason. Take Victorinox’s Bike Tool, for instance. Weighing in at less than 3.5 ounces, this multitool oozes preparedness in the form of an L-wrench, 8 commonly used bits, and a pair of plastic tire levers, omitting anything and everything not needed by cyclists (and a couple of things they could use, too, but who’s counting?). Regardless, stash one in your messenger pack alongside a tire repair kit & mini-pump, and forget it.

Find it at Victorinox ($50) or Amazon ($40)
