Description

Typically, assembling a streamlined tool kit for mountain biking requires the forethought and knowledge that comes from years of experience. Sure, you're able to stuff all of the gear that you need in a hydration pack, but that just leads to overloaded riding as things accumulate. Riding's best enjoyed with the least weight and clutter possible, and that's where Hero Kit steps in with the Super Hero Kit for Mountain Biking. Now, there's no guesswork left to your pre-ride repair preparations, leaving you with more time to focus on the fun stuff.

Like the Hero Kit, this one includes both personal and mechanical equipment, but it also adds a quality pump, tube, and top tube-mounted bag to the picture. Not only does the kit provide tools, it also includes step-by-step instructions, too. This means that when your electronic gadgets are out of range or have chewed through a battery, you're still able to reference a 24-page waterproof manual of easy-to-follow instructions. Essentially, that's the extent of this kits thoughtfulness. However, it's much more than just a book and multi-tool in a plastic bag.

First off, the included LokSak is a waterproof, highly-durable bag -- not something that you pack a lunch in. The Hero Kit also includes a multi-use wipe in order to spare your favorite sock from a dishonorable trailside demise. Some more commonly overlooked essentials are duct tape, cable ties, and an emergency contact card.

Well, that covers personal and some mechanical aids, although, there's more to the latter. You'll also find that the Hero Kit smartly includes a gear cable, 9- and 10-speed KMC replacement links, a frame bolt, and a cleat bolt. If you've ever experienced the frustration of a loose cleat halfway through a ride, you're able to rightfully appreciate the last detail.

As for tire repairs, the kit includes a Planet Bike tire levers and a patch kit, along with a Tyvek boot in order to repair torn sidewalls. Finally, the Hero Kit Hero Kit for Mountain Biking's multi-tool has 12 functions including all of the common Allen wrenches, a T25 torx, and a chain breaker. The tube mentioned earlier can stretch to fit 26-29in wheels in emergency situations.

Thorough but large

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

There is lots of important gear in here but beware two observations: It is not small...it will not work very well with a bike seat that does not have a large 6 inch spread over the tire/frame and I have had a hard time getting the tool out. I would recommend taking everything out before using and then putting things less likely to be used at the bottom
