Sometimes a regular bike-specific multi-tool just isn’t enough to get you out of a jam — like the time we locked the keys in the van. We ended up having to craft a hook from wire fencing to thread through the door and flip the latch, and if it weren’t for the wire cutters on our Gerber we’d have missed a great ride waiting for the man in the yellow van to arrive. Granted, some of the tools on the Gerber Flick will overlap with a decent multi tool, but you should never venture into the wilderness without pliers, wire cutters and a selection of sharp blades. Not the lightest multi-plier on the market but the Gerber Flik is a bomber-solid trailpack essential.
