OneUp Components Introduces EDC Lite Multi-Tool
In 2017 OneUp caused a mini sensation when they aimed their engineering and clever design skills towards the tool market. The EDC tool helped usher in the trend towards well-designed solutions for getting some of a rider's essentials out of their bags and onto their bikes, adding speed and convenience to mid-ride fixes while lightening packs or helping riders ditch them altogether.
We are big fans of the original OneUp EDC Tool, but there were issues for some riders: you needed to tap your steerer tube to run the original tool, voiding your warranty. The second version eliminated the need to tap the steerer but wasn't 100% flawless and would sometimes come loose mid-ride. The new Lite looks like a worthy successor - or alternative - to the original, depending on your needs. We've got a few EDC Lites on hand and will report back shortly on installation and use. For now, OneUp's official release, below, will fill you in on all the details.
