The Team Issue Crombie is the workhorse of the Crombie offerings.
This is the tool the pro mechanics asked for and now it’s available to the masses. It’s the version with the stories to tell. Like what the Dolomites are like during the Giro, what it’s like to put a rider into the maillot jaune, what the mud in the Arenberg forest feels like between your fingers, and what champagne tastes like on the Champs Elysees.
You get the point; this tool has been around the world. So what did the worlds team mechanics want? A half inch hollow handle to get the weight savings of the dual sided SL but with the simplicity and efficiency of the single sided tool, a nice polished finish and a slightly shorter handle to spin a little easier once that lock ring is cracked loose.
These tools get a little more attention in the shop as well. They spend a couple of extra hours in the tumbler getting polished, get our best welder on a Tuesday and looked over with a fine tooth comb before they're shipped.
The Team Issue is subject to limited availability so plan ahead.
