Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great emergency tool
I can see complains about the tire lever breaking and the pedal spanner being a bit flimsy. Well, this is a portable emergency tool! It will not substitute proper workshop tools, but then again, no multitool ever does.
A bit bulky, but it replaced all other items in my emergency kit with the exception of my metallic tire levers (I just don't have the patience required for plastic levers).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Not that high quality
First time ever I used the screw driver it broke into pieces!!!! Like weak metal fracture. BAD.
Chain tool broke one of the pins after using it about 40 times.
Allen keys have rounded quicker than other tools I have.
This is my experience after 2 years using it.
All in all this is a quite polivalent tool, but not a heavy duty one.
I think it was bad luck how the screw driver broke (maybe a fabrication defect) but anyway I was expecting more quality from this piece of kit.
Very good tyres removers (strong!!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous A cornucopia of chrome vanadium
I bought the Alien II to replace my long-serving Marks and Spencer multitool. The Alien is a very nicely designed piece of kit, and is most defininitely not one of those silly 'emergency' tools that trade real leverage for sheer compactness. The two piece design allows full length Allen wrenches and spanners, and critically has the spring-loaded lock for the flat screwdriver/bottle opener, knife blade, and the three open ended spanners. The chain tool thoughtfully includes the incredibly useful hook for holding a loop of links. The dovetailing together of the two halves is nice, but the release button is exposed and will probably break eventually. The T25 torx driver, while good for disc hub bolts, won't fit your Rohloff clickbox - I'd prefer to see a T15 or T20 alongside a combination knife and flat screwdriver. And at 326 grammes it's not a tiny little thing, but you'll never notice it while touring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Superb Tool. Everything you would possibly need for a long ride. It is very robust and well put together. I would absolutely recommend this tool to any cyclist. VERY VERY HAPPY. CRC are faultless when it comes to service.

Easy tool to use. Haven't used all component tools on it as yet but hey they may come in handy one day. It splits in half and there is a handy place for putting your spare chain pins. Put it in your rucksack and forget about it till you need it. I also use it for repairs at home. A robust tool.

Solid construction. Well thought out and just about every tool that you will need for a quick repair to get you home. Handily splits in two to allow better access to awkward spots. I'm very pleased with this Alien 2.
Don't think the tyre levers will last to long though (only meant to be a stop gap i suppose). Just a bit bulky, but it has 26 tools. Watch the knife - very sharp!!

Great tool, everything you need, decent sharp knife, compact design. (It is quite a lump though!)
