The Topeak design team should be feeling pretty pleased with themselves after picking up a trio of 2016 Red Dot Awards.
The Ninja Series Tools, JoeBlow Booster and Nano TorqBar DX were the three winning products. Topeak is not stranger to awards wins, picking up four Red Dot prizes at the 2010 edition. According to distributor Extra UK, the brand has one at least one Red Dot award for the last 12 consecutive years.
The compact three-part Ninja Series Tool series includes the Ninja P bike pump which is hidden in the seatpost, the Ninja C chain tool in the handlebar and the Ninja TC multi-tool in its water bottle cage integrated toolbox.
The JoeBlow Booster pump is designed to make it easy to install tubless tyres – acting like a compressor, this pump stores an air charge of one litre up to 160psi / 11bar to quickly fill tyres and ensure the correct installation on a tubeless rim.
The Nano TorqBar DX is pitched as the smallest torque wrench on the market. Two bits can be carried in the handle of the Nano TorqBar DX (so the rest can be left at home) leaving riders ready to torque anything on the go.
