Lezyne SV10 Multi Tool Long-term review – the chain breaker bent

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

The chain tool spins smoothly. Most of the tool is quite robust, excluding the chain breaker, the tools rotate nicely, as loing as the bolts are not over tightened, you can easily rotate the tools out, and they don’t wobble, there is no play.
If you notice play, the bolt just needs to be tightened.

The Bad:

It does not have enough tools for me. So I had to get another Multi-Tool.
Not enough leverage for very tight bolts. The stitching for on the sleeve wore out fast so it was too slack, but that’s easy to fix. Slightly looser tolerances in the bolt as with my Teng Tools bits.
The aluminium Chain breaker bent. I've not used the chain Breaker often or at all I am not sure, but if I did it was not often, I think think I've not used the chain breaker on the SV 10 Multi-Tool much, never had to use it on the trail for breaking a chain, but the Chain Drive tool I used many times it worked well.

Overall Review:

I had this multi-tool for several years. The review has been updated 04 & 05, 2021. it had to be updated due to bending the chain breaker.

Materials:

All tools apart from the chain breaker are steel. the plates are aluminium.

Lezyne SV10 bent hex key.

A few years ago I managed to bend the Allen key, I don't remember how, maybe I dropped it. I actually had to bend it back as it was so bent it was not possible to tuck it in. I had to buy a multi-tool, and this was the easiest solution, but it does have all the tools I need, for example, the Allen key used for reach adjustment on Shimano brakes.

Lezyne Rap14, has clearance too.

Both tools work well for pad adjustment, clearance is not a casern, so If you want a more robust tool with chain breaker, I suggest going for a different tool than SV10. I saw Rap14 in a local store so I bought it.

Lezyne Rap14, has clearance too.

But the size makes this multi-toolfit into tight places well, for example adjusting pads on mechanical brakes. It served me well the few times I had to use it for my own bikes, but I also used it many times on other peoples bikes, So it got a lot of use combined, but I need more tools than this tool has.

I have dropped it many times on hard ground like rock surface and asphalt.

The support for the chain is taller, whole tool is beefier. It fits better in the hand. I suspected goal of making the tool super light had an negative effect on the use and how stubborn links it can push out.

First attempt it worked, second link, it the tool bent.

Chain Drive is made of steel, but the the chain Breaker on Sv10 multi tool is light aluminium. To me the failure was not a surprise, as the chain breaker is aluminium.

But with the Chain Drive & Rap 14 didn't bend.

On Rap14 everything is steel apart from the plates.

I've not tested it yet. But it will probably do much better than SV10. The chain Breaker on rap14 is quite similar to Sv10 at the top, but has Mavic spoke wrench built in, but.Rap14 has the same length supports as the Chain Drive Chain Breaker, also the shape is different in the mid section, And of course material will make a big difference. Having aluminium chain Breaker was a mistake I think. The Chain Drive Chain Breaker is even beefier than the Rap14. So I am sure it will hold up for years maybe decades.

I've replaced the Sv 10 with Rap 14. And still use the Chain Drive Chain Breaker at home.
