Strengths: Compact design.
Gives you the basics for trail repair and general maintenance.6061t-6 aluminum housing.(very strong)
Fairly priced for this kind of quality.
Weaknesses: Only it's shortage the 17&19 offer but none in terms of strength.
The actual tools themselves are 6150 high tensile steel according to Crank Brothers.I did some internet research on this steel and found it's also used in automotive leaf springs,valve springs,piston rods and spline shafts,with this in mind breakage shouldn't be an issue.
Will update review after a year if any wear issues arise.
