Topeak’s Ratchet Rocket Lite mini bit driver is exactly is a tiny ratcheting bit driver bundled into a compact set. The Ratchet Rocket is a great addition to any EDC or mobile tool kit. Even minimalists will appreciate how compact the kit is.
There are a number of bike maintenance tools that are great for general purpose use, such as Park’s Bondhus-made hex drivers. This one looks to be as equally at home in a bike saddle bag as a tool bag, pouch, or even a pants pocket.
I am plenty fond of my Wera bit ratchet, and Beta’s is pretty darn good too. My Wera bit ratchet set is a great part of my mobile tool kit, but at $60 via Amazon it’s a little pricey for those that might not need all the bits. The ratchet is available by itself for ~$32-35 via Amazon, but that’s still a little pricey for a lot of users.
Gearwrench’s Microdriver kit, which is $17-$30 via Amazon, is also a good option, but it’s a little bulkier than other brands’ bit ratchets.
Topeak’s set is priced at about $23, which is more affordable than I would have expected for a bike tool. Bike tools tend to have niche premiums tacked onto their prices.
The set includes 10 bits: Phillips #2, metric hex 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8mm, and Torx T10 and T25.
Update: The Ratchet Rocket Lite has been updated and now includes a magnetic bit holder extension and 2 plastic tire levels, but also a higher price.
