Chain breaker tool-which one?


Recommended Posts

Could anybody suggest a good make of chain breaker? There are many on the market and some are total junk. Would the multi-tool versions be any good - which one?

Will it go with on rides or mostly stay at home and look after the other tools?


To go with the Lezyne mutli is nice. At home a Park Tool is always nice.

I would think the specialised (not Spez) tool would work better for the job, and not a multi tool, which is almost jack of all trades and master of none. I think for breaking the chain you need a "master".


Is this for possible snapped chains to fix on the road or to just take off and clean at home? MTB or road?

Thanks for the input. MTB and need to carry it with me. Guess the specialized one will do then - Lezyne/Park Tool?

I've been using the Park CT-5 for more than 10 years - small and light enough to carry, strong enough to last forever.

You carry a rather complicated little one that works like magic for trailside repairs.


:D Yes I know. It was something I picked up from CRC. I had a look - it is a Topeak.

Mini Chain Brute Chain Tool


This small chain tool goes anywhere and actually performs like a shop quality tool. The fine thread, special “V”- shaped handle, and super strong replaceable pin make chain removal and installation a breeze.

  • Works on any derailleur chain
  • Shelf for loosening tight links
  • Perfect take-along chain tool at only 77 grams
  • 10-speed chain compatible.
  • The CT-5 is nominally 60mm tall, 55mm wide and 15mm thick

Packaged carded: CT-5C

Just in case you missed the right answer!


BTW Park makes various models, from big sturdy workshop ones to small light trailside ones. Check their website.
