Factory Wrench originally developed its titanium T-handle sets for technicians traveling on the SX and MX circuits, who must carry their tools back and forth from the race semi to the track.

These T-handles are approximately 50-percent lighter, as well as stronger, than traditionally made steel T-handles. They are handmade in the USA from corrosion-resistant Ti 6-4 and come in a choice of raw or polished finishes. A set comes with six-point metric sockets in the popular sizes (8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 17 and 19mm). The price is listed at $399.

Here’s more from Factory Wrench about the origin of the titanium T-handle sets:

The titanium T-handle idea was sparked to life on January 17, 2020 at the Anaheim 2 Supercross press day. While delivering tools to some of the Factory technicians, it was obvious the T-handle was their go-to tool for most jobs. Titanium was everywhere on the Factory bikes, yet the technicians didn’t have the trick metal for their T-handles.

The first sample 8mm titanium T-handle was made by Factory Wrench and delivered to C-Lo [Jason Anderson’s mechanic] at the 2020 San Diego Supercross. It tested far superior to what was previously being used and received rave reviews by all the Factory technicians that tried it. The technicians carry the T-handles during the day, the goal was to lighten their load while delivering trick tools they can be proud of owning.

Titanium 6AL-4V was sourced for the project then the learning and building process began. Electrical Discharge Machined sockets beautifully welded together to proper length rods comprise the titanium T-handles.
