If you own an eBike then you’ll know that cleaning and lubing your chain is a tricky business, as the crank doesn’t spin backwards like a regular bike unless it’s flipped upside down. But this can scratch components, or if you use an Allen key in your crank bolt it can get stuck in the bolt, or worse, damage your precious cranks! So we knew we needed to come to the rescue with a rad new tool that quickly and easily allows you to clean and lube your eBike.
Our new eBike precision machined drivetrain tool contains three different sized tool bits, which snap into place with a magnetized connection, all wrapped up in a durable CNC machined 6061 aluminium body. It fits straight onto your chain ring, so you can spin your crank backwards, and the protective silicone sleeve prevents any crank damage.
It comes supplied with a handy lanyard and carabiner clip, so you can keep the tool on hand for when your drivetrain needs some lovin’!
NB: Periodically spray a protectant such as HCB-1, MO-94 or Bike Protect onto the end and magnet to ensure there is zero corrosion

Is it safe to spin my cranks and chainring backwards on an eBike?
Yes, this is safe to do. During the development we had this verified by a Bosch motor service engineer who confirmed it would not cause any issues with the motor.
Will the tool damage my crank arms?
No, we’ve designed the tool with a protective silicone sleeves that wraps around the body of the tool and rests against the crank arms when in use.
