Feedback Sports Team Edition toolkit in review

In the “The Lab” we present the latest products and put them through their paces for you. Some undergo long-term tests, while we check others out only briefly. This time we reveal how the Feedback Sports Team Edition toolkit fared.

Undoubtedly, one of the perks of working as a bike journalist is that we get to ride a lot of bikes. Each of these bikes needs setting up, and then after some intensive trashing, often needs a little TLC. Our UK Editor Trev has been using the Feedback Sports Team Edition toolkit for the last 12 months. It’s not always practical to drag all the bike tools from the workshop, but also there is nothing worse than having an issue before a ride that could easily be solved with the right tool. The Feedback Sports Team Edition toolkit is claimed to be the go-to toolkit for pre-ride, races and essential maintenance. Containing 19 tools with 25 functions, all packed into a tough and durable case.

The work stand hanger pole of the Feedback Sports Team Edition is very useful to keep your tools out of the dirt
The only thing missing from the kit is a good shock pump, so Trev has added a Topeak model
In use, all of the tools are sharp and bite well into tough bolts

Despite bouncing around the back of a van, getting soaked in event car parks, and being used in anger for a year, the Feedback Sports Team Edition toolkit is holding up well. The hard wearing case is proving just that, scratched and bruised but functionally perfect. Inside the tools are all still sharp and feel well made, despite daily use, and everything has a nice quality feel with soft-grip handles. Trev has added a Topeak Shock Pump (his favourite) in place of the 10 mm allen key as it is not needed on his bikes. The tyre levers were the only disappointment as they snapped on first use, albeit under duress, but every rider will probably choose the tyre levers they trust. With the addition of the shock pump the kit has everything he needs to setup and repair bikes in the field. There has not been a job yet that could not be fixed with the kit. The Y-wrenches are super convenient for fast bolt-checks but can be a little awkward when working in tight spaces, however, the cable snips, chain whip and long pedal wrench feel strong and up to the task. One tool that he loves is the pick, which has proven extremely useful on numerous occasions. The best feature of the kit is the work-stand hanger, a small bar can be unfolded like a tent pole which holds the kit open when hung on a work-stand, making working on your bike a pleasure.

After 12 months of almost daily use, the Feedback tools are holding up really well

The Feedback Sports Team Edition kit is costly, but is a great quality and the perfect investment if you want to keep on top of your bike maintenance or are looking for a transportable kit for travelling or keeping in the van. You will need better tyre levers though.

  • Good tools do not come cheap
  • Tyre levers could not handle a DH casing
