It would be useless to have such a good tool, yet find it so complex to use. Luckily, the Pro Bike Tool has been made with the interests of the end user in mind. It is so easy, safe and secure to use. When you lock in the torque, you can be sure that it is not going to slip and go off.
The Pro Bike Tool 1/4 Inch Drive Click Torque Wrench Set has been designed with an spring loaded adjustable collar. The main benefit of such as feature is that once you have set the torque, you get to lock it in. This removes all the margin for error and as a result, you will always get the torque right.
This is very important for some of the sensitive bike parts that need to be fastened. Even if you slip when fastening the bolts, the adjustment collar stays locked in, so there will be no accidental over or under-torquing.

Accuracy rating, torque range and adjustment
Any torque wrench is only as good as it is accurate. This one has an accuracy rating of +/-4 percent for clockwise operation, which is good for higher torque settings. For lower torque settings, you will find that the accuracy rating goes higher. For anti-clockwise operation, the torque accuracy is +/-6 percent. We might also mean that the ratchet head has 72 teeth.
This wrench set has been calibration-tested to the highest standard: the ISO 6789:2003. Thus, you can buy with confidence that it is the right tool for fastening even the carbon fiber parts of your mountain bike. However, it is important that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use and storage.
The tension parts for bikes do not require all that much torque. Thus, for this bike torque wrench, the torque range is between 2Nm and 20Nm. At lower torque settings, stay keen for the click because it is quieter than at high torque setting. You get the smallest adjustments of 0.1Nm to the torque, you know this is as precise as a torque wrench gets.
