Trail Tool

Trail Tool


There’s no point in having bombproof bikes if you don’t have the right tracks to ride them on; that’s why we made this take on the McLeod tool.

Raking, chopping, digging, packing down… We haven’t found anything more versatile than the Trail Tool™! It’s a tough tool, built to last – its 30mm diameter handle too. Oh, and those holes are for locking it to a tree so you can leave it trailside for next time.

The Trail Tool™ is probably the most versatile trail building tool; you can dig, rake, cut, and tamp, all with the same tool. If you can only have one tool, make sure it’s the Trail Tool! It’s not just for mountain bikers; many are also used by Forestry Commission districts around the UK, as well as in allotments and home gardens.

The Trail Tool™ is available with or without the handle, which can save you a stack on shipping costs. The ‘Head only – no handle’ option, does not include the wooden handle.

The Trail Tool™ head will only fit a tapered handle; 40mm diameter at the end, tapering to 35mm diameter at the top of the collar (150mm from the end). These handles may not be readily available near you, so please check before you buy!
