This kit is a fantastic starter for anyone looking to have some basic support on the trail. For most generic mechanical issues this kit is more than enough to get you back on the trail to finish your ride. The handbook is a really good addition to help guide those who are less mechanically inclined and prevent the walk of shame back to the car. However, a few additions are needed to really cover your butt for all emergencies. I ended up adding a CO2 cartridge and inflator as well as a spare tube (the upgrade to the Super Hero Kit does include these things) and I have been totally happy with it since then. If you are consistently doing big days that take you far from the car, the upgrade to the Super Hero Kit is probably worth it but for everyday rides this kit is a really good place to start!
Holding true to it's name, it's saved my a$$ plenty of times! It has everything you could need in one easy, lightweight pouch! The multi tool is quality and my new fav! Thanks for saving the day HeroKit!
Hero Kit, you are appropriately named! Never leave home without this handy kit in your pack. It's as important and bringing water along for your ride. Everything you could possibly need packed into a portable kit. I only wish I had this years ago when I began biking. The field guide is super handy as well. Chain breaks? No worries! Derailleur issues? No worries! This Hero Kit is the answer you need real time in the field. These Hero Kits are also my new favorite gifts for bike friends and family. Get yours today.
Hero Kit, how I appreciate you so! Not only do you have all the parts I might need in one handy dandy travel pouch but you have directions with how to use the parts when in need! First on Saturday one of the kids I was coaching snapped his chain and Wallah I had the missing link! Easy fix. Then on Sunday when a friend's derailleur went all wonky I had the field repair guide which truly does offer confidence when out in the field with the issues.
I got my HERO hit from a Vida Clinic and threw it in my pack as I really don't know much about bike mechanics... However, I'M SO LUCKY I DID! 3 miles in on my solo trek out to no-mans land I noticed my dropper post starting to fail. No problem, with the super compact HERO multi-tool I was able to access the shock and pump it up and off I went. Then a mile down the road, I got a flat tire... from that moment it just went down hill. Issue after issue and with my HERO kit I was able to patch, tape and fix my bike so I could make it home. We've all had those rides. They happen, but with my HERO Kit and their Field Repair Handbook I was able to do it all myself and make it home before dark! I'll never leave home without it again! THANKS!
