The MODUAL range consists of MTS, an innovative 13 function multi-tool and MTR, an accompanying tool roll that provides an effective means of transporting a cyclist's essential items. Each are comprehensive enough for use at home but compact enough for the road. MODUAL seeks to offer a portable yet powerful alternative to conventional folding tools.
MTS is a modular system that utilises individual tool bits rather than pivoting allen keys. Four of these can be held internally so the tool can be configured to match the specific requirements of any bike. Tyre levers snap magnetically to each side forming an ergonomic handle whilst the tool’s elongated body provides superior leverage. The head of the tool features two tool bit slots, one acting as a wrench and the other a screwdriver, allowing for easy access to any bolt.
MTR is a novel twist on the traditional tool roll and is constructed from hard-wearing Cordura. The top flap provides a workstation whether you are at home or on the roadside. It even features a hidden magnet so no longer is there a risk of tool bits getting lost. Internal sections are divided to store MTS (and its attachments) as well as other cycling essentials and there is an external strap for securing a spare inner tube. MTR is spacious when flat but when folded up forms a compact bundle that can be strapped under a saddle or sit perfectly in a jersey pocket.
To ensure the usability, performance and durability of each product in the range is of the highest order both have been through an extensive development process. During which prototypes would be produced, rigorously tested and the design tweaked accordingly
To purchase something from the Add-On Menu you need to increase your pledge to cover the cost of the items you wish to add (e.g if you would like your MTS personally engraved you would need to add £5 per tool).
If you are yet to pledge then choose your reward as normal and you will be able to manually increase the amount you are pledging. If you have already pledged look for the 'Manage Pledge' button toward the top of the project page which will allow you to increase your existing pledge.

Risks and challenges
Whilst this is our first experience of manufacturing a product we have expended a huge amount of time and effort constructing our supply chain prior to launching this campaign.
We have assembled a group of highly-experienced manufacturing partners that have vast expertise in their respective fields. Each component has been de-risked as far as possible at this stage - even down to testing multiple adhesives to determine which is most suitable for bonding magnets. We have already made an upfront investment for the tooling for the tool body and commissioned production samples of MTR - therefore barring some minor tweaks the prototypes used in the campaign will be the same as the production versions.
If an external risk (unforeseen and out of our control) were to arise this could result in production delays. However, there is already an element of contingency included in the timeline presented above so we are confident of meeting our current delivery schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
