Altum: The Bike Multi-Tool That Works!

The Ride Velo household must have half a dozen bike multi-tools, none of which really work very well. I’ve cursed each one for not reaching the more inaccessible parts of the bike or for the way bits flop around uselessly. And none of them have an 8mm allen key to unscrew my Look Keo pedals.

Two decent quality tyre levers clip in either side of the handle and it has detachable 2, 2.5,3,4, 5, 6, and 8mm hex tool bits as well as a flat head and Phillips screwdriver tool bit.
