The Lezyne is a very pretty tool, all shiny silver with a great-shaped chain tool to boot. Being joint lightest and with a nice black leather-effect cover, the SV11 was very comfortable thrown into a jersey pocket, with no sharp edges.

Made with a retaining body of thin alloy and tools of corrosion-resistant stainless steel, the SV11 incorporates the features most riders need, including 2-8mm Allen keys, Torx T25 and T30 (used for some chainring bolts) flat- head screwdriver and a chain tool.

The Lezyne SV11 multi-tool suffers the same issues as most of the other tools that try to cram a decent number of features into a small package — functionality of some of the tools is slightly impaired.

The chain tool works better than some of the same design, predominately due to the comfortable grip. Overall, apart from the cost, the SV11 is a really good tool — a couple of tweaks would make it perfect.

Verdict

The lightweight SV11 offers some well thought out features within an unmistakeable Lezyne designed tool. The use of stainless steel will mean that the tool should last years which will go some way to justifying the high price in comparison with other similar multitools
