Wolf Tooth EnCase | Carry Your Tools In Your Handlebars

by 4

If hip packs and enduro straps aren’t minimalist enough for you, then there’s a new opportunity to relieve your pockets of stuff and stash it on your bike: the EnCase system from Wolf Tooth. This sleeve allows you to carry a multitool, tubeless tyre plug set and chain breaker in your handlebars.

Bar tricks.

Fitting both road and mountain bike bars, the EnCase sleeve uses a rubber flap which you cut to match your bars. You’ll need to use grips which have a removable bar end, as the sleeve includes its own bar end. The whole system is available as the ‘Encase System Bar Kit’ for £127 from UK distributor Saddleback. This includes two sleeves, and both tools.

Storage Sleeves

  • Magnets & O-rings keep all parts in place
  • Ball detent swivel head helps access hard-to-reach places
  • Handle doubles as breaker bar when ball detent swivel head is bent for extra torque

Or perhaps you just appreciate neat little gadgets and widgets that fit together just so. The Wolf Tooth EnCase system is available now from Saddleback.
