Muc-Off E-Bike Drivetrain Tool

3.6 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

The Muc-Off eBike Drivetrain Tool makes cleaning of your the chain on your eBike straightforward. You'll know that when you spin the cranks backwards, only the cranks spin and not the chain. This can make trying to clean your drivetrain a right pain.

 

The Drivetrain tool from Muc-Off contains a precision machined, magnetic body which you insert one of three different sized tool bits into. This fits straight onto one of your chainring bolts, but without pushing through and potentially damaging your ebike motor. Then when you spin the cranks backwards, the crank catches on the Muc-Off tool which is covered in a protective silicone sleeve to prevent damage. This causes the chainrings to move backwards with the cranks and thus letting you clean your chain. Simple, but effective.

 

The kit includes a lanyard and a carabiner clip so you can keep the tool on hand for whenever your drivetrain need a good clean.

 

  • Tool which allows you to spin your chain backwards on your eBike
  • 3 sized tool bits
  • Made from machined aluminium

Our Verdict

The Muc-Off eBike Drivetrain Tool is an ingenious invention which allows fuss-free cleaning of your ebike drive chain, no more having to turn your bike upside down and potentially scratch it.

This revolutionary bit of kit locks firmly into an eBike sprocket bolt, allowing the drivetrain to spin backwards freely, making eBike maintenance a breeze. Not only is it quicker, but it’s safer on parts too.
