About

 

 

Never forget your tools again.

The Dialed Cap by Rugged Components is the world's first patented steer tube integrated multi-tool. That means the tools you need are always there, where you need them, so you'll never forget your tools again.

 

 

 

 

Easy Installation

Installing the Dialed Cap is quick and easy. all you need is a mallet or hammer. Everything else is included. 

The Dialed Cap is compatible with any metal 1-1/8'' Steer tube. Currently NOT compatible with carbon steer tubes.

 

 

 

The Dialed Cap has two wrenches with four bits that cover all the majority of your “on the trail” needs. The wrenches are made from heat treated high strength steel.

Our patent pending Hex Hole Technology enables your wrenches to key into each other so you have the leverage when you need it, and the small footprint when you don't. Tested beyond 15 ft lbs of torque, you'll break a bolt before you break a wrench.

 

 

Grab and Go.

Quickly grab a wrench, make an adjustment, and be on your way.

Be the prepared friend.  

With the dialed cap, your tools are there when you want to make a quick adjustment, or help out a friend.

Not only for the Mountain.

The Dialed Cap is compatible with any metal 1-1/8'' Steer tube.  No matter the bike, we have your back.

 

 

 

A hard problem, a simple solution.

I started working on the Dialed Cap over two years ago. It started with a problem I was encountering, I always forgot where I'd left my favorite multi tool. Now that may seem like any easy problem but when you love biking as much as I do, you end up riding a lot, which leads to having quite a lot of gear. That easy problem is actually quite hard.

This got me thinking, what if you could never forget your tools again? What if there was a better option than a clunky multi-tool? Thus the Dialed Cap was born. One patent and multiple pending later, we've created a product that is delightful to use, looks rad, and never leaves your bike. The problem is hard, but the solution really is this simple. Leave your bulky saddle bag and heavy backpack behind, just get out and enjoy the trail. - Evan DeGray
