Motorcyclist’s Secret Weapon | The New Leatherman Tread

Leatherman TreadConvinced of the need to have a multi-tool with you on every ride, but hating the idea of jamming one into your pocket or having to carry one in a pouch on your belt?

Leatherman has developed the perfect answer: the Leatherman Tread. Tread is a multi-tool that can be worn on the wrist like a wristwatch; in fact, including a watch will be an option.

Tread is crafted of high strength, corrosion resistant 17-4 stainless steel links that include two to three functional tools each, making a total of 25 usable features like box wrenches and screwdrivers available without having to take up a bit of precious pocket space.

Each link is metal injection molded for strength and the bracelet is customizable with slotted fasteners, so the user can rearrange links, add new ones, or adjust for wrist size to ¼”. Even the clasp is functional with a bottle opener and #2 square drive. Other link tools include a cutting hook, hex drives, screwdrivers, box wrenches, and a carbide glass breaker.

Tools in Leatherman TreadA version of the Tread bracelet that includes a watch will be available in Fall 2015. The Leatherman TreadTM QM1 will feature a Leatherman-designed, Swiss-made timepiece with precision quartz movement. A shock resistant sapphire crystal ensures scratch resistance for heavy duty wear, and the curved watch limits reflection and increases outdoor visibility.

The Leatherman Tread bracelet will be available worldwide in Summer 2015 in stainless steel and DLC (diamond like coating) black finish. MSRP will be $150 and $200 USD, respectively. Individual links for customization will also be available.
