Blackburn Designs launches new on the bike tools
Three new bicycle tools enter Blackburn Design’s renowned tool lineup: Introducing the Big Switch Ratchet Multi-Tool, Pro Plugger, and Pro Plugger CO2 Inflator Kit.
Blackburn Design, today announced the addition of three new tools to their line of bicycle tools and accessories: the Big Switch Ratchet Multi-Tool, the Pro Plugger, and the Pro Plugger CO2 Inflator Kit.
These items are now available to riders via authorized Blackburn Design retailers and online at www.blackburndesign.com. “Every year we look at our products and ask ourselves: ‘How can we make these better?’ Our tool line is no different,” remarked Blackburn Design Marketing Manager, Daniel Powell. “The new Big Switch Ratchet and Pro Plugger tools were designed with the utmost attention to functionality. We also set out to make them look as good as they perform. There’s no doubt about it: no matter the ride or the adventure, these are the tools that we’d want to use ourselves.”
The Big Switch Ratchet Multi-Tool builds on the popularity of the current Switch and Big Switch multi-tools, by incorporating a two-way ratchet mechanism into the handle. It features extra-long 2.5 through 8mm Allen bits, as well as T25 and T30 Torx bits that work in either the ratchet mechanism or handle. It also comes with the Wayside chain breaker, 0, 1, and 2 spoke wrenches, a disc-pad spreader, flathead, and a Presta valve core tool. The entire set fits neatly in a 2.5” x 4.5” x .5” nylon carrying case for compact storage in a jersey pocket, pack, or bikepacking bag. The retail price is $45.00.
The Pro Plugger and the Pro Plugger CO2 Inflator Kit make fixing tire punctures a breeze. The Pro Plugger itself is made from sleek, CNC aluminum alloy and features a minimalist, clutter-free design. It comes stocked with ten double-wrapped plugs, incorporates a Presta valve core remover, and fits neatly into a rubber mounting kit for easy placement on a top-tube, seat post, or even handlebar. The Pro Plugger CO2 Inflator Kit adds in the popular CO2’FER inflator head, a 25g CO2 cartridge, and a universal frame-mounting kit that fits discreetly beneath the water bottle cage to keep everything within reach. The retail price for the Pro Plugger is $40.00; the Pro Plugger CO2 Inflator Kit is $60.00.
