When it comes to tool wraps, the concept isn’t exactly a new one. Mechanics have been rolling up their tools in cloth for years and the idea has gotten quite popular with cyclists as well. Wanting to create a modern version of the classic tool wrap for cyclists, Just Enough Tools felt that most that were currently available were also too big. What do you expect with a name like Just Enough Tools?
The answer then was the JET Roll, a tool wrap designed for the bare essentials – a spare tube, patch kit, tire levers, and small multi tool. The JET Roll keeps everything wrapped up in a neat, stylish, and hand made package without rattling or the ability to fall off your bike. Now available in the JET Roll II and the JET Roll MTB, there is an option for nearly any rider…
One of the big advantages to a tool roll compared to just throwing the individual tools in a jersey pocket is that the bundle is always ready to go. As long as you haven’t used the tube or patches, you’re grabbing just one item as you walk out the door for your ride instead of multiple. Each JET Roll includes a classic leather toe strap (synthetic for MTB) that allows the roll to be strapped onto the back of your saddle. In order to guarantee the roll won’t slip out of the strap, the leather is slipped through the reinforced slot in the wrap itself ensuring it stays in place. The compact size of the wrap improves over the saggy profile of most saddle bags, and is able to be pulled tight.
If you’re not keen on strapping something to your saddle, the JET Roll II adds a simple button closure that allows it to be carried easily in a jersey pocket as well.
Because of the desire to keep everything tightly wrapped, the original JET Rolls will not accommodate a mountain bike sized tube. That’s where the JET Roll MTB comes in with a larger tube pocket, and an additional tool storage divider. The MTB is also recommended for touring or cyclocross/gravel bikes that use larger tubes than a standard road bike. Available in black with green or orange highlights, the MTB is specifically designed for use in wet or muddy conditions including the synthetic toe strap.
Hand made in the USA, JET Roll wraps are available in a number of different colors with black or white toe straps. Depending on the color and the model, prices range from $30-40. Sizing for the road models is listed at 10×5″ and 24-26g in weight with an additional 26g strap.
