With today’s lightweight components, torque wrench use in the shop is no longer an option — it’s a must for every mechanic.

The TW-5.2 is a high quality, ratcheting, click-type torque wrench that accurately measures and applies the proper amount of torque to a component’s threaded fastener(s). With a range of 2-14Nm, the TW-5.2 is designed for the lower torque settings that a shop or consumer would use for proper seat post, seat clamp and handlebar / stem applications. Comes with its own protective case.


2–14 Newton meter range (18–124 Inch Pounds)

Adjustable in 0.4 Nm increments

Ratcheting 3/8" drive

Reads and registers for both left hand and right hand threading

Dial-adjust system allows desired torque setting to be preset

Conversion scale on tool body

Calibrated to be accurate to +/- 4%

Length: 22.9cm (9")

NOTE: Torque wrenches are measuring instruments and are not intended for use as a general-purpose ratcheting driver. Do not exceed 14 Nm when using the TW-5.2.

ratchet and torque a perfect combination

I've only used this a couple of times to tighten a stem and faceplate. It is simple to dial in the torque value incrementally to achieve the correct final value and the ratchet makes it quick and easy to use. The 'click' when you reach the torque is subtle (compared to the Effetto Mariposa wrench) so a little caution is needed so as not to overdo it. It is expensive when you add the separate socket set, but worth the peace of mind when tightening bolts.
