Thanks to the proliferation of cheap IKEA DIY sets, the Hex Key has gotten a bad rap as a throwaway tool. But anyone with an interest in cycling, motorsports or actual furniture design knows the importance of having a quality set at hand. Building upon almost 100 years of experience, SILCA has developed the HX-One Hex Essentials Kit, guaranteed to put all imitators to shame. Built from high quality S-2 Tool Steel and coated with thin-dense Chrome, these tools are made to withstand years of wear and tear. And with a sprayed-on textured polymer finish, they provide maximum grip and control, even at the smallest size. To add to the bargain of the set, which includes 8 Hex Keys in assorted sizes, a proprietary SILCA Magnetic Adapter allows the 6mm Hex Key to double as a ¼” socket drive, compatible with any ¼” driver Bit. The kit also includes 2 Phillips Head and 2 Flat Head Drivers, putting in one convenient place all the tools you need to keep a bicycle in tiptop shape. This high level of design quality continues in the design of the packaging, an eco-friendly beech wood box fully CNC machined so that the tools always lock into their proper slot. And through the inclusion of a magnetic closure system on the lid and elastomeric tabs in each tool slot, you’ll be able to organize your kit without even having to take your eyes off your bike. All of this, combined with an affordable price tag, ensures this will be the last Hex Key set you’ll ever need to buy.
