Silca brings back their popular combined T-Ratchet & T-Torque multitool, making it even better than before. The tool is about as compact as it gets for hauling an adjustable torque wrench & several bits out on a ride. And now Silca has upgraded the torque tube itself to offer improved accuracy & usability.
T-Ratchet & T-Torque multi-tool kit
At just 30g, the main titanium & aluminum bodied tool can be adjusted to torque settings from 2-8Nm, covering the range of more fragile ti & carbon found on most high-end components. At $100 it isn’t cheap for a multi-tool, but surprisingly reasonable compared to standard adjustable torque wrenches.
Torque Tube tech
The way it differs is that the Torque Tube works by representing torque in the twist of the tube, rather than a click-based torque wrench.
That is also how it gets its update as well. Silca has separated the torque indicator lines onto three sides of the Torque Tube to better space them out (pairing 2&6Nm, 3&5Nm & 4&8Nm each on one side), and make it much easier to read & hit the torque level you are aiming for. They’ve also had Bora-Hansgrohe pro mechanics putting it to the test this year to finalize the laser markings.
The T-Ratchet & T-Torque multi-tool includes 10 magnetic bits (2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm & 6mm hexes;T10, T20, T25 torxes, and a #2 Phillips) and a steel bit extender.
All of those can be use can be used with the 72 tooth engagement T-Ratchet & the Torque Tube for tightening, or T-Ratchet & the bit extender for loosening. Then everything stows & rolls up nicely in the waxed canvas tool roll.
Silca mostly shows the T-Ratchet in its T configuration here. But one end of the ratchet is removable. Then thread it into the other end for a more standard ratchet configuration.
