Until there’s an app for fixing your bike, opening a beverage or hacking your way through some impromptu trail work, there’s the Task One.
It’s a protective iPhone case for either 4/4S or 5 that houses an aircraft grade alloy multi tool inside a polycarbonate shell. Not only does it house a Swiss Army Knife’s worth of gadgets, it’s got your more commonly used bicycle tools, too. Oh, and it’s still thinner than many other phone cases.
Video above is a great run down, click through for photos and a list of tools…
The case weighs in at just 89g – 96g and will be available in three standard colors: Slate Gray, Cherry Red and Jet Black. Pledge the right amount in their IndieGoGo campaign and you can get a limited edition Orange Flame (safety orange?) version. The minimum pledge to have a Task One headed your way in April is $75, and they’ve got 10- and 100-packs of them for distributors looking to get an early supply for resale.

We’re all thinking the same thing: Can I fly with it? Yes, as long as you remove the blade, and big props to for offering a replacement blade for only the cost of shipping if TSA oh-so-pleasantly reminds you that blades aren’t allowed on airplanes that they they’ll be happy to hold that for you (whilst also taking down your personal information, making you sign some paperwork and then sending you a nice letter in the mail saying they’re keeping their eyes on you and it better not happen again or there will be consequences. Yes, that happens, even over something like an errant CO2 cartridge).
