"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.
For the HX-One we had to start with the finest S-2 Tool Steel, a
shock resistant steel which has been refined by Swiss and German
toolmakers for the optimal balance of strength, hardness, shock
resistance and dimensional control. S-2 yields stronger tools with
much harder surfaces for prolonged tool AND fastener life. The keys
are then coated with thin-dense Chrome, a process generally
reserved for mould tool components or optical grade surfaces inside
moulding tools. This coating provides the hardest, most
dimensionally stable finish possible on each hex key. Finally, each
tool is spray coated with a high-grip, high-visibility textured
polymer finish for maximum grip and control. No more dropping your
tools with greasy fingers or losing them on your workbench!
Included with the HX-One Essentials Kit is the proprietary SILCA
17-4 Stainless Magnetic Adapter. The Adapter with a pleasant
magnetic click turns the 6mm Hex Key into a ¼" socket drive which
can fit any common ¼" driver Bit. Included in the kit are the 6
most common Torx sizes, 2 Phillips Head and 2 Flat head Drivers.
You can literally handle any modern bicycle fastener with the tools
in the box.
Each HX-One kit is lovingly packed into a fully CNC machined box
made from sustainable Beech Wood. Each box is hand sanded and
finished before receiving the stainless steel SILCA Shield on the
