Kickstarter: The XBelt and D-Key Campaigns Take Portable Approach To Repair
The belt has room in the clips to stash two bits, and comes with a Ph2 and Hex3. Unfortunately, skate boards utilize ‘Merican wrenches, so the three built in wrenches are unusable on most modern bicycles.
The idea itself is pretty neat and we look forward to seeing a bike specific X belt launched at some point in the future.
The campaign currently has $2,000 pledged towards it goal of $20,000. You can back the project starting at $35 over the next 25 days here.
This UK based project is based around the simple idea that Hex Keys should be shaped like keys, because in their standard shape they’re uncomfortable to hold. The design is half the size but has double the force. It’s also more comfortable to use and it’s distinct shape will keep your friends from stealing it unknowingly.
A pledge of 8 £ will net you a D-key in your preferred size. The campaign currently has £ 905 pledged towards it’s ~£10k goal, with 24 days to go. Order yours here.
