This winter brings us some “new blue” for the home or professional bike wrench with Park Tools‘ February eBike-specific tool drop. These three new tools are the EWS-2 Bicycle Electronic Shift Tool, the LRT-5 Lock Ring Tool, and the SW-6 Spoke Wrench 3.7mm.

Park Tools has been making bicycle-specific tools for a while. A long while. They started in a lil’ Schwinn dealer called Hazel Park Radio and Bicycle shop in St. Paul, Minnesota back in 1956. With their trademark blue color, you’re sure to find them on just about every local bike shop or bike lover’s home workbench.

Today they launched a few new tools to help maintain the ever-growing amount of eBikes that are out there. Let’s go over the details.

The EWS-2

Retail: $9.99

Making quick business of removing bicycle electronic shifting wires and batteries, the WES-2 has a composite body that prevents scratching of expensive components.

The angled ends allow for the safe removal of Shimano Di2 E-tube EW-SD300 wires in tight spaces. The universal coin cell tool helps to remove and install battery covers on SRAM AXS and other electronic accessories.


  • Compatible with Shimano Di2 E-tube EW-SD300 wires (nominally 3mm OD connector)
  • Not compatible with Shimano Di2 E-tube EW-SD50 wires (nominally 5mm OD connector)

**Note: The new EWS-2 tool is offered in addition to the EWS-1 Electronic Shift Tool, it does not replace the EWS-1 as they are compatible with different wires.**

The LRT-5

Retail: $33.99

Just when you thought you had all the bottom bracket tools in the world, along come ebikes. Only instead of a BB tool, now you need a lockring tool – and specific lockring tools for different motors at that.

The new LRT-5 Lockring Tool is precisely machined for a perfect fit. Use the LRT-5 to remove or install the lockrings that retain direct-mount chainrings found on Fazua Ride 60 eBike drivetrains.

LRT-5 features a 3/8″ drive for across-the-board compatibility with most ratchets and torque wrenches. The LRT-5 sports 36mm wrench flats for use with an adjustable wrench or crowfoot. It is heat-treated and plated 4140 steel in its construction to ensure durability and long life.


  • Fits lockrings with a 41mm outside diameter and 16 notches including Fazua Ride 60 e-bike drivetrains.

The SW-6

Retail: $8.95

You may think that the SW-6 looks very familiar… and you’d be right. For the last 50 years, Park Tool’s iconic spoke wrenches have been a staple of their product lineup. The simple design and professional design is sure to continue to be the favorite of bike mechanics all over the world.

Ensuring a long service life, the SW-6 is made in the USA with heat-treated nickel plating. Like all of the Park Tool spoke wrenches, the SW-6 is dipped in colored vinyl by size. This helps you quickly find the size you need in that crowded toolbox drawer. It’s sized to fit 3.7mm spoke nipples that use wrench flats. Most hub-drive eBikes you this size nipple.


  • Sized for spoke nipples with 3.7 mm (0.146″) wrench flats
  • This nipple size can be found on most hub-drive e-bikes. **Always measure to be sure**
