Help Me, OB-1 Multitool, You’re My Only Hope
View Slideshow

Sorry about that title, I couldn’t help myself. The OB-1 is a new tool made of titanium that’s actually 14 tools in one. And if that wasn’t cool enough, it also fits on your keychain.


Design by Object Three, the tool is designed for everyone, but has a few tools that most active cyclists will appreciate. Here’s a look at all the functions this little piece of equipment can perform:

  • 4mm Hex Key (aka Allen Key)
  • 5mm Hex Key
  • 15mm open wrench (same size as found on bicycle pedals)
  • 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11mm box wrenches (within the handle)
  • Small flat head screwdriver (helpful for eye/sunglasses)
  • Universal spoke wrench (0.139″, fits most bicycle rims)
  • Pry Tool (for prying things)
  • Packing Tape Cutter (don’t worry, it’s not knife-sharp, it has just enough of an edge to cut packing tape)
  • Bottle Opener (we made sure that it pops off caps in one try, and doesn’t just bend them)
