The Carbon Fiber Wrenches Your Toolbox Needs

Everybody needs an ultimate set of tools. There's nothing more embarrassing than calling someone to do something that you know damn well you should've been able to do without using Google. While there's something to be said for wielding the heavy steel spanners our ancestors used to create civilization as we know it, we've found some new powerless tools for the modern man — the ultra feathery CarbonLite tools.

Available in a set of five, these wrenches are extremely strong while being incredibly light. The complete set is just 6.7 ounces. Since there's metric on one side and imperial on the other, it can handle whatever bolt you throw at it.

In case you forgot exactly how strong carbon is, here's a little refresher. That shiny stuff is steel. And no, the gif didn't freeze during the carbon test.
