By now, most of us either have a torque wrench handy in the garage or just take our bike to our favorite mechanic to avoid the expensive fallout of over-clamping on carbon and titanium bits. All that careful attention can be undone in an instant though with an unfortunately timed pothole that leaves you adjusting your saddle and guessing on torque. That is, unless you have Silca's T-Ratchet + Ti-Torque Kit tucked into your pack or jersey pocket. Comprised of a bundle of hex and torx heads to match nearly any bolt, this kit utilizes a T-ratchet for leverage and incorporates a Ti-torque extender that lets you know exactly where you stand on torque. It won't click like a pre-set torque wrench, but it's clear markings make it easy to dial in at 2, 4, 6, or 8nm of torque.

- Q & A
A little disappointed
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
My husband was pretty excited to get this as his first Silca tool, but "after using it for a few weeks, I’m somewhat disappointed with it. After using it to torque stem, handlebars and seatpost during a bike build, I noticed that the torque meter no longer goes back to zero, which now makes torquing bolts a bit of a guessing game. Also, the ring holding together the ratcheting mechanism has popped off a couple times when I’ve been using the tool. Seems for the price that Silca charges for tools, the quality would be a little better."
Very novel design
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I am impressed!
Execution and design of this torque wrench are on point. Very easy to use with *minimum* bulk.
I also own full size torque wrenches from Park Tool and pre-set torque handles from CDI. The SIlca T-ratchet is the most convenient to use and stow on short notice out of all of them. The fully collapsable design and convenient flat storing pouch make this easy to stash in a drawer or even saddle bag.
I do have to take away a star for very small and hard to read imprinted torque graduations on the tool. If you have bad eyesight, you're going to be looking really close to the tool as you're using it.
Torque wrench for the ride.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a great kit that you can take with you for the rides. It comes with everything that you may need. The only issue that I do have with it is that the wrench doesn't have click stops and the torque indicator lines are a little small to see. I'm a little old and a lot blind. But I did test it compared to a park tool click stop torque wrench and it is right on. But it is very hard to see the indicator lines that you turn this wrench to, and may be a lot more challenging for a fix on the road. The bonus points are that every bit that you will need is in the kit.
Fantastic Tool Kit
I purchased this kit to carry with me when I travel with my bike. It allows me to put my bike together without carrying a lot of tools. It has all the necessary torque settings that I need. You just need to be careful using the torque gauges. There is no click when you reach your desired torque setting, instead there are 3 ranges of settings (2-6, 3-5 and 4-8) that you have to watch in order to determine the amount of torque you are applying.
Time to get rid of some tools I’ve accumulated in just a few years.
This condensed it for all the uses of the previous tools... One can actually take just a select few bits and the ratchet into a
current tool bag on rides with no concern with under/over torquing. Though the etched numbers are a bit small to read,
I’m keeping this one!... plus, it helps when you get it on sale... even at regular price, it would still be worth it in my opinion.
how do you know when you've reach the right Nm?
The Ti-Torque beam now has three separate scales on it, 2-6, 3-5 and 4-8, which to allow you to more easily see when youâve reached your desired torque setting. Simply locate which scale you want to use, begin tightening the fastener and watch as the scale shows you how much torque is being applied IN REAL time.
Unlike other torque wrenches, this one does not click when you reach your desired torque setting.
What are the dimensions of the carrying case, when closed?
120mm x 70mm x 30mm or 4.72" x 2.75" x 1.18"
Fits in a jersey pocket.
