The Equalizer, the name really says it all. You pull this pedal wrench out of the package and your lip curls expressively, visibly alluding to being impressed. 350 milimeters of heat-treated Chrome-Moly steel with a rubber coated handle gives you a powerful combination of leverage and grip.
Anyone who has ever tried to swap pedals knows how much of a pain in the tuckas it can be. If you don't own a pedal wrench you've probably tried an open ended wrench or a pair of pliers. And if you've tried these other inferior tools then you know that you're either going to end up stripping the pedal or wrestling with the pedal until it finally comes loose suddenly, smashing your hand dead on into the chainrings, leaving your flesh dangling from their teeth. You most likely don't want to lube your chain with your visceral fluids so, read on...
In order to avoid permanent scaring on your knuckles. You're going to need a wrench that allows you to apply a great deal of force but that force needs to be delivered under control. The length and sturdiness of the equalizer give you just that. The power you can deliver with the Equalizer makes quick work of even old, rusted on pedals.
The rubberized grip on the Equalizer ensures that the wrench will not slip out of your hand and when you really need to push those truly frozen pedals, that grip will act as I cushion between your hand and the iron wrench.
Yay or nay?
Sure why not? This wrench is perfect for a shop tech or someone who builds, fixes and or spends a great deal of time working on bikes. It might be a tiny bit overkill for the average Joe but, is there really a such thing as overkill? Naaaaa.
