Few tools are used as frequently and can cause as much heartache or wasted time as the seemingly simple hex key. We found the solution to this common problem by focusing on improving the small details. We didn't reinvent anything here, we used better materials, tighter tolerances, and purposeful design to make it better.
One of our goals with this lifetime set of tools was to have it be completely one-hand accessible (we’ve all been there..). The fine Beechwood box uses a magnetic closure system and each tool rests in a CNC machined slot, held in place by a single elastomeric tab. Each tool fits into and out of it’s slot with a satisfying ‘click’ so that even when stretched one-handed from work stand to workbench, you can be confident in your placement.
HX-ONE Home Essentials Kit Includes:
fully CNC machined Beechwood box
S2 steel hex keys 2mm-10mm
Red polymer coating for superior grip on hex keys
Custom S2 steel bit adaptor to standard 1/4" bit
10 S2 steel bits found in every cycling workshop
HX-TWO is the travel version of our top-selling HX-ONE Home Essential Kit. This set of S2 steel hex and Torx® wrenches utilize a custom molded tool holder that not only helps keep you organized, but it also makes the set the ideal size for stowing away in a tool box or your riding bag for those weekend riding trips and races.
The wrenches in HX-TWO have been meticulously chosen by our product team after extensive qualitative and quantitative feedback from our inner-circle of pro mechanics, bike fitters, and frame builders.

Hex keys 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.5, 2, and 1.5mm, feature the same wide tolerances and extended ball points found on the HX-ONE tools.
