With a few tweaks and improvements over the original award-winning tool, the OneUp EDC V2 remains a unique and convenient option for anyone looking to cut down on their pack weight or leave it at home entirely. Like the original, the V2 stores either in your bike's steerer tube or in OneUp's frame-mounted EDC pump, so it will always be available when you need it.
A small multi-tool, chain breaker, and tire lever provide 20 functions, and the EDC now includes two sealed storage capsules—one large and one small—giving you more storage options. The V2 also has an improved chain breaker, more durable spoke keys, and a lower-friction design for easier access. Despite its higher price and setup requirements, we love the innovative design and will jump at any chance to leave the pack at home.
The EDC V2's main features remain largely unchanged from the original version, but an updated chain breaker and an extra sealed storage compartment are nice updates. The overall package is the same, and with twenty essential functions, this model still packs just about every tool you might reasonably need to keep your bike rolling through a mid-ride mechanical. The multi-piece system comprises a small multi-tool, a chain breaker/tire lever, and a storage unit with two separate sealed chambers. The multi-tool and tire lever clip neatly together with the storage unit threaded onto the bottom, and the whole thing slides smoothly into your steerer tube or the EDC frame-mounted 100cc pump.
Despite being the biggest tool in our test at seven and a half inches long, the EDC V2 receives a perfect score in our portability metric. We think the fact that this tool can live in your steerer or in a frame-mounted pump makes it more portable than any of the traditional multi-tools we tested. With the EDC, it's improbable that you'll forget your multi-tool at home, no last-second searches through the garage, and most importantly, no need for a pack on short to mid-length rides. Add in the fact that this tool is on the lighter end of the spectrum at just 128 grams for the whole package. Most of the tools we tested come in around the 160 to 170-gram range for a similar number of functions.
