Tecnogi make professional torque tools with ❤️ in Milano, Italy. Despite manufacturing some of the cycling industry’s most popular wrenches, they’ve managed to stay under the radar and keep a very low profile. With our commitment to providing quality tools at the best prices we can, Tecnogi was an obvious choice to stock.
The 305F is fitted with a fixed (non-ratcheting) head. The main two advantages over the ratcheting head are the simplicity and smaller size of the fixed head. While we haven’t heard of the ratchet failing in any Tecnogi manufactured wrenches, I’m sure some of you will prefer to have one less thing to worry about failing or needing a service. The same goes for size, while there has only been a handful of bolts I wasn’t able to access with the ratcheting 305 over the past year or so of daily workshop use, if you’ve got a bike with especially tight clearance on saddle rail clamps or suspension pivots, the smaller size of the 305F may be exactly what you need.
As for bits, the 305F is compatible with all 1/4 inch hex bits and holds them in with a strong magnet. If you’re in need of some bits, we sell a sweet little custom package of 10 PB Swiss C6 bits in a Bit Block with all the bits you need to torque the bolts on your bike!
All Metal Construction
One of the most unique features, and probably the best part of the 300 Series is their 100% metal construction. The anodised aluminium shell keeps the wrench light, while the steel head and internals keeps it durable and reliable. This also means there’s no plastic to crack or rubber to perish, and no risk of oil melting a handle when working on suspension forks. The body also sports a knurled finish so your hands won’t slip and drop the tool even when you are playing with oil and grease.
Simply turn the knob on the bottom to align the indicator line with the desired torque on the indicator window. Tecnogi have been very deliberate with their focus to keep the 305 series compact, and if you regularly travel or use a small toolbox, you’ll appreciate the extra size saving. But the trade-off for that compact size is a relatively small adjuster knob, which, while still perfectly functional, can be a bit slower to use than other models. Tecnogi haven’t overlooked that though and have fitted the 305 with a 4 mm hex head, so keep your favourite hex keys close (we sell PB Swiss if you need any 😉) and wind through the range faster than all the torque wrenches I’ve used (there’s been a lot).
All 300 Series torque wrenches conform to ISO 6789:2017-1 with ±4% accuracy for 5000 cycles (clicks) or 1 year – whichever comes first. While that’s the ISO standard, for most of you, especially if you’re not a professional workshop, will find that you don’t need to calibrate it anywhere near that often. Just remember to wind it back to 0 Nm every time you finish using it. Any good local torque wrench calibration service should be able to do it for you, although we’re currently working on a service so you can send your torque wrenches straight back to us for calibration.
