The Swiss Army Bike Tool

Bike tools often resemble Swiss Army Knives; thus, it's only natural that the original manufacturer of Swiss Army Knives is getting into the bike tool game. Ironically, Victorinox's Swiss Army Bike Tool doesn't use the classic folding design that's found in most of their multi-tools, instead relying on a system that disassembles into its five functions.

This unusual disassembling design actually works pretty well and saves precious grams for weight-conscious riders, coming in under 100 grams while featuring two tire irons, allen, screwdriver, torx bits, and a bit-holder. Since you can use each individual bit without dealing with the whole system, it's a little easier to use than a classic bike multi-tool.
