The Birzman Diversity 17 is one of those multitools that looks to pack everything you need into one item. So there’s a chain tool and CO2 inflator, as well as two tyre levers built into the package.

As you’d expect, this leads to a fairly chunk piece, with an overall weight of 180 grams. It bounces around a bit in your jersey pocket. But on the other hand, it does give you a comprehensive range of allen keys as well as the ability to fix flats and chain problems.
