The home-mechanic’s dream tool, the original Giustaforza gets now an even smaller head, to operate in tight spaces. Black anodized, it’s supplied in a metal box.
Capacity from 2 up to 16 Nm: this is the best torque range for precision bicycle applications and ‘sensitive’ components. In use, always refer to the torque values specified on technical documents or printed on the parts themselves.
Set the desired torque rotating the wrench end knob, reading the torque value on the scale (scale resolution is 0,5 Nm, integers on one side, 0,5 on the other)
Insert the appropriate bit (depending on the bolt you need to tighten)
Using the tool, a loud ‘CLICK’ and a 3° free-movement tells when the torque has been reached
Always take the wrench to minimum torque value after use.
Minimal fixed head: Giustaforza’s simple, ‘non-ratcheting’ head has been chosen on purpose on this version, to facilitate the tightening of bolts where space is very limited (like seatpost bolts parallel to the seatpost shaft in zero offset models). The head is now smaller than ever, to maximise this advantage.
Lightweight: the light aluminum body keeps the weight down to a record-breaking sub-180g value, less than half the weight of other torque wrenches in this range of torque. This is paramount to get the right feedback at low torque values, without mistaking the effort to hold the tool with the applied torque.
A state-of-the art tool, built to last: functional, linear in design and precise in any detail: shouldn’t be a surprise to know that Giustaforza II 2-16 has been conceived and produced in Italy. The tool is hard-anodized with laser-etched iscriptions, and it’s built to last. The mechanical, click-type functioning make the wrench extremely shock tolerant and the absence of batteries or electronics furtherly increase its reliability. Each sample is checked and numbered as a single masterpiece.
Metal box with EVA internals: with internals in high density EVA foam and an aluminum outer shell, thi box protects the torque wrench against shocks, hosting both the wrench and the bits (bits are only supplied with DELUXE torque wrench versions).
Calibration service: the +-4% tolerance is guaranteed for 5000 cycles (5000 ‘clicks’), then the wrench should be re-calibrated. Calibration is a service we offer in our laboratories at the cost of 35€ plus shipping expenses (may vary depending on the countries: check terms & conditions with the national distributor). After every calibration, the tolerance of +-4% over nominal value will extend for 5000 cycles. After calibration, the wrench will return to the customer with a calibration certificate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jambers Stunning wee tool
a good torque wrench is a must if you value your bike, then you should have one. This is the nuts, lovely, super easy to set the torque value and gets it right every time. It's quite pricey, but you can feel the quality. Really, no need to take the "& Bits" option, just take the wrench without the bits, it's really not worth the extra 30 euros. If I am being really picky, I would prefer a much smaller plastic box/case.
