Rated 2 out of 5 by Petethebloke Just a pricey toy
I was expecting something like a Leatherman for bikes. This is nowhere near as good as my Leatherman. The design is just not in the same league.
Turning the allen keys is difficult because of the shape of the tool itself. The 15mm spanner is good for nothing - it says in the instructions that it is for emergency only but I wouldn't want to rely on it. The smallest allen key is bent less than 90 degrees which makes me think it has not been made / inspected properly.
I like the way the little knife must be unlocked in order to open it. The screwdrivers are okay. I'll carry it when I go cycling but it's a pity that I'll also need to take a 15mm spanner if I want to cover all emergencies.
If I hadn't used it, and got it dirty, I'd be sending it back to be honest.

Tough and easy to use multi tool. I never go on the trails without it since it's not very heavy and it doesn't take much space in my back pack! I haven't used all the tools since now but they will come in handy in the future.

Хороший ключ за свои деньги. Компактный и не очень тяжёлый. Качество исполнения хорошее - приятно держать в руках.

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.
