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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
