Pedro's RxM multi-tool review

Going for quality over quantity the Pedro's RxM multi-tool has a clever design that offers just a few properly useable functions all wrapped up in a comfortable plastic composite body

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Pedro's RxM multi-tool is very comfortable in use, with an ergonomic housing made of a tough black composite complete with the easily identifiable yellow logo. The RxM has the feel of a workshop tool and similar functionality.

The RxM doesn’t have a massive range of gadgets; it is predominately an Allen key set of good length with everything present from 2.5mm to a usable 8mm adapter fitted solidly on the 6mm.

The nice thing about the Allen keys on the RxM is that they are positioned sequentially; I lose count of the times I fold out a 4mm when it should be a 5mm and then struggle to find the correct one on a poorly laid out tool — not so with the Pedros.

The chain tool is removable, which aids practicality, and all of the tools are manufactured in corrosion resistant heat-treated steel.

The tool functioned faultlessly, but it would be better if it lost the Mavic-specific spoke key and included a Phillips screwdriver.
