Gerber GDC Zip Hex
At $12, the Gerber GDC Zip Hex is the least expensive item on this list, and a no-brainer if you are looking for something small and inexpensive for the cyclist on your list. Gerber tools and knives are renowned for their strength and durability, and are backed by a lifetime warranty.
The GDC Zip Hex has five metric hex bits: 2.5, 3, 4, 5, and 6mm. With that range, it’s obvious that the GDC Zip Hex was made with cyclists in mind, specifically commuters and mountain bikers, as the GDC Zip Hex has a zipper attachment and a quick release to keep it securely attached to your messenger bag or trail pack. Beyond all that, the GDC Zip Hex feels more robust in hand than any $12 tool I’ve held before.
