Review – Lezyne Pocket Torque Drive Wrench

Review Lezyne Pocket Torque Drive
The Lezyne Pocket Torque Drive is a compact torque wrench that you can easily slip into a jersey pocket or race-day tool kit. Presented in its own soft-shell case, it gives you with the tool-bits and confidence you need to adjust delicate bike components accurately and easily.

When it comes to adjusting stem bolts, seat post clamps, saddle rails and even gear lever clamps, you need to be careful not to overtighten or under tighten the bolts; overtightening could result in stress fractures, whilst under tightening could result in slippage between components. A torque wrench allows you to easily adjust a bolt to the correct torque level.

Traditional torque wrenches are bulky items though; they are made for workshop use and not for taking with you on a ride; this presents a problem for ad-hoc adjustments on the go. Leyne's new Pocket Torque Drive is the brand's solution to torque wrench transportation; small and light enough to take with you on your travels.

Oozing the famed Lezyne quality, this CNC machined tool features a removable T-handle that slots into the torque wrench drive. The T-handle allows you to gain good leverage on bolts, while the amount of force you can put through the tool is adjusted using the splined handle that turns the gold coloured knob on the end of the tool – torque can be adjusted from 2Nm to 6Nm in 0.5Nm increments.

The wrench packs up neatly into a compact moulded EVA case that can be strapped under a saddle or stored in a bar bag. The tool comes equipped with six hardened steel bits: 2.5, 3, 4, 5mm hex bits and T20 and T25 Torx bits – these should cater for most modern bike adjustments.

Superbly made and faultless in its functionality, the Lezyne Pocket Torque Drive is a must-have accessory for bike owners that need to avoid being too heavy handed when making minor adjustments to their bike on the go.
