Error-Proof the Torque Process in Performance Bicycles
With CDI Torque Products’ New TorqControl Adjustable Torque Tool

Kenosha,
Wis., March 14, 2014 – Applying just the right amount of torque in
performance bicycles can be tricky at times. That’s why CDI Torque
Products is error-proofing the torque process.
The new patent-pending TorqControl
Torque Tool from CDI Torque Products is an adjustable, torque limiting
tool that applies torque in a range between 2 Newton Meters (Nm) and 8
Nm,  indexing at every tenth Newton Meter. The tool is perfect for
low-torque applications found in performance bicycles.

For
important applications that require torque, it’s critical to apply the
specified torque. Improperly tightened fasteners can cause serious
problems such as joint or component failure and poor performance. Damage
or failure to expensive components and high performance materials can
be costly and a real safety concern.

The goal is to apply the
right amount of torque the first time – every time – and TorqControl
does just that by making torque simple. The tool eliminates the
possibility of over torquing fasteners with a cam-over clutch design
that’s simple and easy to use.

Grams Thoughts =>
I found their CDI Preset Torque Limiting T-Handle an indispensable tool
in my home shop, and I doubt I could live without the set (refer to the
review here). The new TorqControl Torque Tool looks like an excellent product, and having the large range of 2Nm to 8Nm torque setting should make it a great tool.  I can’t wait to try this tool out!

Features and benefits of the TorqControl Torque Tool include:

  • Cam-over clutch design error-proofs the torque process – torque made simple
  • Adjustable torque from 2Nm to 8Nm, indexing at every tenth (0.1) of a Newton Meter
  • Ergonomic L-Shaped handle with rubberized cap for better grip
  • Standard 1/4” magnetic hex receiver allows for easy bit changes
  • Included bits: 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, T25, 4” long 4mm and 4” long T25 bit
  • Includes certificate of accuracy

The
TorqControl Torque Tool retails for about $80, and is distributed by,
Barnett Bicycle Institute, Bicycle Technologies International, Downeast
Bicycle Specialists, The Hawley Company, Quality Bicycle Products, and
United Bicycle Supply and is available at your local bicycle shops. For
