We previewed the new European-made Unior Euro multi-tools when they debuted last fall, and while they had hoped to have them out in riders hands at the start of the year, we’ve just got word that they are actually shipping now. While the vast majority of multi-tools that you’ll pick up are made in Asia (even from otherwise domestic tool makers), Unior is fairly unique in that they make their Euro line entirely on their production lines in Slovenia.

The Unior Euro comes in four different varieties from just 6 basic bits up to 17 more complete functions, and has them in two different colors – blue for their home EU market & red in North America. Check out their spec and pricing below the fold…

With a high level of quality and precision control over their own tool manufacturing in Europe, Unior Bike Tools continues to build their brand presence & reputation from pro teams to bike shops and end consumers. Their latest Euro multi-tool line-up makes it easier than ever (and affordable) to get ahold of some of their tools and use them out on the road or trail.

The same attention to detail that goes into their pro shop tools makes its way into the consumer multi-tools with the same materials and production methods for the tool bits. Each of the tools uses chrome plated shafts with black oxide treated tips to deliver precision tolerances and long life. The four different versions available are:

Euro17 multi-tool

Made in Europe Unior Euro multi-tools Euro17 blue

Selling for $40/43€ and weighing 176g, the Euro17 includes everything you could need: 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 8mm hex wrenches; T10 & T25 torxes; 1.0 & 5.0 flat screwdrivers; a PH1 phillips screwdriver; a chain breaker; Schrader & Presta valve tools; plus spoke wrenches for 3.3, 3.45 & DT nipples.

Euro13 multi-tool

Made in Europe Unior Euro multi-tools Euro13 red

At $38/40€ and weighing 149g, the Euro13 pares it back a bit to the essentials while keeping the chain tool: 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 8mm hex wrenches; T10 & T25 torxes; a PH1 phillips screwdriver; the chain breaker, and Schrader & Presta valve tools.

Euro7 multi-tool

The $20/18€, 65g Euro7 is much more about keeping things tight with just a full set of allen keys to get especially those small bolts: 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, & 6mm hex wrenches.

Euro6 multi-tool

Made in Europe Unior Euro multi-tools Euro6 red

Last up is the $18/18€ Euro6 at 80g, which still packs the full range of tools you typically need on the bike, in a package small and light enough to find its way into a jersey pocket of small saddle bag for every ride: 4, 5 & 6mm hex wrenches; T25 torx; 1.0 & 5.0 flat screwdrivers; and a PH1 phillips screwdriver.

The new multi-tools, as well as the rest of the full tool catalogue are globally available through a series of distributors. Unior tools that get sold in the United States and Canada use red & orange grips, while Europe and the rest of the world stick with Unior’s traditional (slightly pale) blue & black. Either way the tools & construction are the same, made on the same Slovenian production lines.

  1. Cool idea if they’re made well. Last pro tool company I bought a multi tool from (Park) rusted out in 3 weeks. Euro 13 looks slick and is a candidate for replacing my excellent silca tool if it ever dies

  2. I too have had Park mini tools rust out way too quick, but I also have a Park torque wrench which I suppose is better than nothing, so dypeterc, what torque wrench do you think is spot on for torque numbers?

    • I have a Craftsmen which has good bang for the buck. It’s supposedly w/in 4% of true torque. If I were to do it over again I’d probably get a Tekton 1/4″ drive as my Craftsmen 3/8″ drive is a bit unwieldy for bike applications.

        • Why would you replace any park tool? Send it back and they’ll service it for a reasonable fee. That being said, we have one of these that is used every day in the shop and it’s been in use for over 4 years and no problems. I think you must be hard on your tools, and don’t back out the wrench when not in use.

  3. Park has both shop and consumer grade tools. It is unfair to state “they only make home mechanic tools”. Take for example headset presses: the HHP3 is a home grade tool unquestionably, but the same cannot be said for the HHP2, which is built, meant (and priced) for shop use. Only the most well off home mechanics would consider an HHP2 a nice home tool (oh to be one of those…)

    • I have a HHP-2 at home, I was a wrench for over 10 years and when I knew I would be changing jobs I bought all the tools I needed to set up my own work shop. The HHP-2 pairs nicely with the DAG-2.2 and the TS-2.2 (they didn’t have the 4 or the 2.2P yet). The remaining tool generally are Snap-On or Abbey depending on what it is.

    • If you do a proper Park vs. Unior comparison take a look at the most used smaller tools like Allen and Torx wrenches, that will shed some light on what Park considers “shop grade”. Unior’s chrome vanadium is superior to whatever low grade carbon tool steel Park uses.
