Six types of ratchet in a single tool, combined with high working speed - this is what makes the Wera Zyklop Speed Ratchets special. This versatility means it can be used as a fine-toothed ratchet, flex-head ratchet, angle ratchet, nut fix ratchet, power ratchet, and even as a screwdriver.
The unique rotating mass design makes Zyklop ratchets extra-fast. One twist and the ratchet spins like a top, helping to quickly take up the slack. They are ideal for square sockets and adapters with square drive, all with ball lock.
The swivelling ratchet head with defined lock positions makes the versatile Zyklop suitable for all work on brakes, swing arm, engine cover or forks.
Available in 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2".

Test reportsIssue 19-2010
In its 19/2010 issue, "MOTORRAD" magazine tested the Zyklop ratchet from Wera, and awarded a VERY GOOD rating.
"Put to the test: Wera Zyklop Ratchet. Working on your motorbike in a confined space is often impossible with a conventional ratchet. The Zyklop ratchet from Wera, on the other hand, has a free-swivelling head, which makes it ideal for reaching inaccessible parts of your motorbike. The slider allows the desired head position to be locked and unlocked. In the 0° position, the ratchet with its extremely comfortable, ergonomic handle can be used like a screwdriver. Sockets are secured by a ball lock with pushbutton release. Clockwise/anti-clockwise toggling via knurled wheel on the head of the fine-toothed ratchet. The MOTORRAD testers found that the Zyklop with 1/4-inch drive did a great job in their travel tool kit."
