We’ve featured a fair few interesting products on roadcc that are launching with the help of Kickstarter, a crowd funding service, and the latest is The Nutter multitool from London-based Full Windsor. They’re seeking £8,000 and are well on their way to hitting that target with 43 days to go, at £6,807 raised presently. It costs £35 for the multitool and pouch, with an expected May delivery.
Full Windsor have some previous success with Kickstarter, last year they successfully sought raised enough capital to put their Quickfix rear mudguard into production. We tested it and found its good design and protection from rear wheel spray recommendable.
Innovation stops for nothing, and their latest product is a unique multitool designed to be as simple and functional as possible. It 10 ten of the most commonly used tools and the really clever bit is the handle used to operate the hex tool bits, phillips and flat head screw driver, also doubles up as a tyre lever at one end and a 15mm spanner at the other. There’s also a bottle opener too, naturally, and a spoke key.
The tool bits are made from high quality chrome vanadium steel so will be tough and durable, and the Nutter itself is investment cast from 304 stainless steel, so it won’t rust. . It’s light as well at just 185g for the lot. The tool bit slot is magnetic for easy operation.
The multitool is kept inside a very smart pouch made from leather and recycled inner tubes. The pouch has two wraparound leather straps that can be used to attach it to the loops on a Brooks saddle, making it easy to fit to your bike. It can also be slung from the top tube it fit inside a jersey pocket.
And they’ll be releasing a posh premium version of The Nutter, which will have eight titanium coated tool bits, a premium leather pouch in black or tan, and will be engraved with the owner’s name and serial number.
Here’s the full list of tools:
- glass filled nylon tyre lever with a steel core
- 15mm box head spanner
- spoke key
- 3,4,5,6,8mm hex tool bits
- philips head screw driver
- flat head screw driver
- T25 torque key
- tool bit extender

“We have put over a year of blood, sweat and tears into The Nutter’s design, to create a product we genuinely believe is one of the best all-round cycle multi tools," says Full Windsor‘s founder Mark Windsor.
