FIX Manufacturing: Multi-use tools for the modern-day athlete

Laguna Beach, CA – After a successful 2016 Kickstarter campaign, FIX Manufacturing multi-tools are now available for purchase via FIX Mfg website and select specialty retailers nationwide. Born from the desire to revolutionize portable and wearable tools, Fix Manufacturing is raising the bar for innovation in action sports. The brainchild of skate, snow and bike enthusiast and company Founder Tony Zentil, Fix Mfg takes pride in offering a product line of quality tools that boast optimal performance, function and easy accessibility.

Those familiar with extreme sports are well aware of having to build, tune, and repair their equipment on the spot. With functionality in mind, Zentil designed each of the tools in collaboration with athletes such as X Games gold medalist snowboarder Eero Ettala, skateboarding icon Steve Caballero and BMX legend Mike Clark.

FIX debuts four products: The Powder Pliers (snowboard tool), The Board Sword (skate tool), The Wheelie Wrench (bike tool) and the all-time belt: created to fit and carry any of the three tools. Most recently, at Agenda Long Beach trade show Fix debuted their latest addition to their roster, The Kraken (surf tool). Kraken will be available for sale in the coming months.

Thoughts => All their compact tools look ideal to carry around and perform maintenance for your designated sport. Obviously, I am most interested in the Wheel Wrench for mountain biking and its small footprint makes easy to stash in a pocket or pack for on the trail bike repairs and maintenance. If needed you can get the All TimeBelt and carry the tool around on the accessory belt, making for quick access no matter where you are. 

The Powder Pliers

The only all-inclusive snowboard tool on the market. Retail $35

Have you ever crashed in hardpack snow with the point of impact focused squarely on the tool you are carrying? It’s not a pretty sight. It’s as though the industry has banded together to create the most oddly shaped tools. The exception being our Powder Pliers. The flat and compact design fits nicely into small change pockets or even chest/arm pockets. In addition to having all the essential hardware tools, there is a nice emergency file that sharpens edges at a perfect right angle. Convenient if you nicked a rock or didn’t expect icy conditions and need to make critical adjustments on the mountain. Pair it with the All Time Belt and never be without it again.
