TRO Designs Superleggera is the Smoothest and Lightest Ratchet on the market.
Engineered to be the lowest weight possible while having exceptionally low back drag. Not certified for depths below sea level.
Features of the Superleggera Ratchet:
Titanium Chassis CNC Milled from Ti-6AL-4V (Grade 5). The highest specific strength alloy available (strength to weight ratio).
- Gloss Carbon Fiber overwrapped handle. Over 80% of the handle length is reinforced with Titanium beneath the carbon fiber - it's strong enough to stand on.
Lowest Backdrag geared mechanism on the market @ 0.6 in-oz of torque to engage the next gear tooth. Anything below 3 in-oz of torque is extremely smooth.
- Integral Magnetic 1/4" Hex Bit Driver in the bottom of the handle. Eliminates screwdrivers from your tool kit.
DMLS Titanium 3D Printed Knurled Switch for ease of use with oily hands.
Available with Black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) or Gold TiN (Titanium Nitride) coatings. DLC offers an extremely low coefficient of friction (0.07 -1.5) and extremely high hardness. Titanium Nitride coefficient of friction ranges (0.2-0.6).
- Custom machined Titanium Torx fasteners.
Lightest 1/4" Ratchet in production. Total weight is 55g! Typical ratchets this size weigh 100g.
- TSA approved for carryon luggage. 1/4" drive tool length is 127 mm (5"). If James Bond carried tools, this would be in his kit. The 007 of ratchets.
The Superleggera's (Superlight in Italian) geometry was derived from Topology Optimization to remove material where there is no stress, achieving the ultimate in stiffness to mass. Designed specifically for travelling motorcyclists - because there's some places you can only get by bike, and lighter is always better.
