Last year we heard about the Nutter, a stainless steel device that combines a multi-bit cycling multitool with a tire lever. Since then, inventor Mark Windsor decided to take that design and make it even more useful. The result is the Breaker, which is essentially a Nutter with an added chain-break tool.

Like the Nutter, the Breaker features a receptacle that can receive an included selection of interchangeable bits. These consist of five sizes of hex tools, a Philips head screwdriver, a flat head screwdriver, a T25 torx bit, and a magnetic tool bit extender.

Both devices also have a built-in spoke wrench, bottle opener and nylon-capped tire lever, and are stowed in a bike-mountable pouch made from leather and recycled inner tubes.

The Breaker adds a chain tool to the mix, allowing users to remove and replace broken or worn-out chains. It uses the existing tool bit extender as its handle, and features a replaceable hardened stainless steel pin. The chain tool does take the place of the Nutter's box wrench, although an optional 8-piece socket set should provide similar functionality.

Windsor and his team are currently raising production funds for the Breaker, on Kickstarter. If they're successful, a pledge of US$55 will get you a basic Breaker, and $75 will get you one with the socket set thrown in.

The whole multitool weighs 100 g (3.5 oz), not including the pouch or sockets. You can see it in use, in the following pitch video.
