Dorel Sports is one of the world’s leading bike portfolio companies. Their brands include Cannondale, GT, Schwinn, Mongoose, Sugio, Guru, and Fabric.
Fabric creates unique and innovative cycling products. Like the Chamber Ratchet Multitool. I like my Silca T-Ratchet + Ti Torque kit a lot. However, the waxed cloth case makes the kit too bulky to fit in my KEG Storage Vessel. I had been carrying a rusting Lezyne multitool, and the Fabric Chamber looked like a good replacement.
The base of the cylinder unscrews to reveal a set of double-ended stainless steel bits.
The cylinder is 99mm tall and 25mm wide. In a holder in the base are 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5 and 6mm hex bits, T10 and T25 Torx bits, SL3 and SL5 flat head bits, PH1 and PH2 Phillips head bits, and an 8mm hex adapter.
Apart from the small size, I was attracted by the two-way ratchet head. Bits can be positioned centrally in the ratchet.
Or at one end of the bit for a longer reach.
The Fabric Chamber Ratchet Head Multitool has replaced the Lezyne multitool in my KEG Storage Vessel. The Chamber Ratchet Head is smaller than the Silca T-Ratchet + Ti-Torque kit. It weighs less too, at 170gms compared to 232gms for the T-Ratchet.
The Chamber tool lacks a torque function. However, I feel this does not detract from its usefulness for repairs while on the road. Loose bolts can be tightened just enough to hold until the end of the ride. Tightening to specification with my Silca Ti-Torque wrench can be done once at home.
The Fabric Chamber Ratchet Head Multitool is a good-looking design that fits inside my KEG Storage Vessel along with tire levers, a spare tube, a CO2 canister and an inflator head.
Neat, tidy, and ready to roll.
