Hirobel is a specially designed clamp for bicycle repair stands that makes it easier to work on your bike. It better distributes stresses and loads through the bicycle frame, offering superior stability while eliminating possible crushing or damage to thin-walled and shaped tubing. The pressure clamps used on contemporary workstands were developed for round steel tubing more than 40 years ago, predating carbon fiber, aluminum, aerodynamic and oversized tube shapes, integrated seat masts, dropper posts, and suspension systems. These legacy designs assume your bicycle tubing to be both round and straight, and when it is not, the clamp can impart very high point loads at the clamp edges causing finish damage, internal carbon layup damage, or outright crushing of tubes on the lightest designs. With Hirobel, specially shaped, paint-friendly cones and bindings cradle the frame at the tube intersections, where wall thicknesses are higher and forces can be distributed over much larger surface areas. Adjustable and adaptable for any possible frame design, the Hirobel also allows the repair stand clamp to be located closer to the bicycle center of gravity. This improves stability and eliminates bouncing of the bike during heavier work while also locating the drivetrain consistently higher for the mechanic, improving visibility while reducing back strain.
Roughly 70% of damage to high-end carbon components like seat posts, handlebars, and stems happen when making adjustments without using torque measurement. This problem is accentuated by the majority of adjustments occurring on the roadside or trail-side. T-Ratchet + Ti-Torque solves these problems by delivering a highly ergonomic tool with a torque measuring extender that provides real-time feedback as you are tightening the fastener. The Ti-Torque beam has three separate scales on it, 2-6, 3-5, and 4-8, which allow you to easily see when you've reached your desired torque setting. Ti-Torque weighs in at a mere 30 grams meaning you'll hardly notice it's there until you need it. The T-Ratchet uses interchangeable magnetic components to convert from a screwdriver to a ratchet, to a ratcheting T-Handle in seconds, which gives the user the ability to have several tools at once in an extremely small package. - Ti-Torque beam with three separate scales for measuring 2-8Nm - Precision ratchet with convertible magnetic extension - Steel bit extender - S2 steel Hex bits: 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm - S2 steel Torx bits: T10, T20, T25 - S2 steel 2mm Phillips head bit - Duck-waxed canvas carrying case measuring 120mm x 70mm x 30mm - Kit weight: 220 grams
One of the first things you notice in the toolboxes of top-level motorsport or Pro-Tour mechanics is extremely high-quality hex keys. The reasoning is simple; better tool fit leads to better feel and confidence for the mechanic as well as a significant reduction in the likelihood of damaging exotic fasteners made from titanium or aluminum. For the HX-ONE, we use the finest S2 tool steel; shock-resistant steel which has been refined by toolmakers for the optimal balance of strength, hardness, shock resistance, and dimensional control. The keys are then coated with thin-dense chrome and a high-grip, high-visibility textured polymer finish for maximum grip and control. Included with the HX-One Home Essential Kit is the proprietary SILCA 17-4 Stainless Magnetic Adapter. The adapter turns the 6mm hex key into a 1/4" bit driver. - Fully CNC-machined beechwood box with magnetic closure - S2 steel hex keys: 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10mm - Red polymer coating for superior grip on hex keys - Custom S2 stainless steel bit adaptor: 6mm to standard 1/4" bit - S2 steel Torx bits: T8, T10, T15, T20, T25, and T30 - S2 steel Screw bits: PH1, PH2, SL4, and SL5
