Bosch Impact Tough Bits Upgraded and Expanded

Bosch Impact Tough Bits

Bosch recently upgraded the design of its Bosch Impact Tough Bits to keep pace with ever more powerful impact drivers. The upgrade includes impact-rated screw driving bits, double-ended bits, nut setters, and sockets and bit holders. The bits feature Bosch’s Xtended Torsion Zone, designed to absorb torque peaks and reduce breakage by transferring torque stress at the tip of the bit to the Torsion Zone for tension dissipation. The 6-inch Impact Tough Double-Ended Bits feature a Dual Torsion Zone designed to protect both ends of the bit. All the bits in the upgraded series come with a silver sleeve for visibility and laser markings rather than stamped scripts for identification.

“Impact drivers today are offering more torque than ever before, so professionals need a series of bits that can keep up with these more powerful tools. As a power tool accessory leaders, Bosch took the time to perfect the manufacturing process for Impact Tough bits in order to meet the most rugged applications on the jobsite.”

-Desmond Smith, product manager, accessories, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation

Our Take

Bosch Impact Tough Bits

In the quest for one bit to rule them all – or at least rule all applications – Bosch offers up this upgraded and expanded line of bits to withstand the increasing concussive force of stronger impact drivers. After all, what good is a powerful tool if the delivery method is the weak link?

Some of us might consider bits to be a throwaway accessory: buy a multipack and chuck them when they wear down. But the generic multipack bits don’t hook up well to all fasteners and they sure won’t last long in today’s stronger tools. Besides, they’re small and get lost easily. So that’s why we’ve begun to spring for bits like the Bosch Impact Tough bits that will last longer and perform better.  We’ve seen well-designed bits like these reduce the chance of bouncing and camming out. We’re eager to see how those torsion zones perform, too.


Additionally, Bosch shows us that these aren’t one-and-done bits by going the extra mile with the sleeve and etching to be sure we can find and easily identify the bits amongst our tools. We’ll be sure to designate a safe place for these new bits so they won’t get lost!
