Hero Kit Hero Kit for Road Biking $45.00
Save the day.
Next time you get a mechanical, will you be able to fix it, or will you be stranded on the side of the road, waiting for help? Well, if you have the Hero Kit for Road Biking, you'll be able to pull yourself up by the bootstraps and tackle almost anything that has you sidelined. Whether you're fixing your own bike or your friend's, you'll be the one who just saved the day. And that'll make your post-ride beer taste that much better.
The Hero Kit includes both tools and instructions to help you handle the vast majority of roadside repairs. What does that mean? Well, for starters, you get a 12-function multi-tool that encompasses all of the Allen wrenches that you're likely to need, as well as a chain tool. To help you make the best use of the chain tool, there are both 9- and 10-speed master-links. Moving on, the included tire levers make puncture repairs a whole lot easier. There's also a patch kit for your tube, and a high-pressure tire boot in the event that you damage your tire.
Unlike the Super Hero kit, you don't get a pump, but odds are that you already have one. You'll even find some spare bolts, including a spare bolt for your cleats. There's a strip of duct tape, which will have you whipping up your own Bike'Gyver inspired fixes in no time. And since mechanicals seem to happen at the least opportune moments, there's even a poncho. If you need it, you'll be glad you have it.
All of those tools aren't much use if you don't know what to do with them. Accordingly, you'll find a manual that covers the majority of repairs that you're likely to face -- everything from fixing a flat to readjusting a derailleur. Granted, the whole process is easier if you know what you're getting into, so we'd recommend at least flipping through the manual before your first repair. Trust us, it makes the whole process much easier.
The Hero Kit for Road Biking is available in one size and it comes in a reusable clear pouch.
What community has to say
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a great tool kit to take on the long road rides. It has everything you need and also things you didn't think of. I like the fact that it comes with a small manual so you can read directions on how exactly to fix something-especially handy if you are not mechanically inclined. It is a little heavy though but definitely worth the little extra weight for piece of mind.
