OneUp’s New EDC Lite – No Special Tools or Tapping

OneUp components just released a lower profile and less invasive follow up to their popular standard EDC multi tool. The new EDC Lite finds its way into your headtube without needing to tap the steerer or use a special stem. A sample is on its way for testing at the moment – read on for the full scoop in the press release below.

[Press Release] – EDC Lite is a 9 function Multi-Tool which contains your most used tools and is designed to live inside your stem/steerer tube.

EDC Lite is easy to install in 5 mins without removing your star nut or threading your steerer tube. Your headset is still preloaded using your star nut in the traditional way.

EDC Lite adds just 75g to your bike weight and is perfect for carrying a tool on almost any bike with a star nut. See compatibility page for full details.
