Strengths:    - It works!, it actually works!
- Won't snap like pissy thin ones
- Gentle on tyres because of its wide design
- Much safer than metal levers
- Big, bright Michelin yellow levers that are easy to spot on the tools table.

Weaknesses:    - No hook thingy like other levers but it's like I ever use the hooks anyway.

Bottom Line:   
It's cheap, it works, it's safe and you only really need one lever.

Flat design gets in between tyre and rim really easily. The plastic they have used won't snap even with very tight fitting tyres.

They don't have the little hook at the end of the lever to hold the spoke, but they work well anyway so I haven't found this to be a problem.

Bottom Line:   
These and other tyre levers cost next to nothing, but if you are stranded in the widerness with a flat a good set are invaluable. Buy a good set that will not let you down - get these.

Tire levers for SUPER tight tires?

My blue park ones just can't do the job. Which ones do you suggest for SUPER tight tires?Read More »

Tire levers?

My little blue park levers met their match yesterday, and would like a more robust set. The wire bead Nevegal was a bastard to get off my Sunringle wheel. Longer, and made of aluminum I'm thinking. I like the look of the crank brothers tool. Any recommendations?Read More »

Pedro's Tire Levers: Unsung Heroes

So I have a Schwalbe tubeless ready front tire and a rim with no real channel in the middle. It's an extraordinarily difficult combination to mount and dismount. I've managed in the past, but for whatever reason, today I was less competent. I managed to launch and lose one of my blue Park Tool ti ... Read More »

Tire Levers

Is it possible to order just the tire levers for the headtube tool from Cannondale? Unfortunately, I lost the tire levers off my tool while transporting my bike to a ride on the bike rack. I loved the concept of the tool, and I'd love to be able to replace just the levers instead of buying an entir ... Read More »
