I have a hybrid type bike with very tight-fitting tyres About 2 years ago I developed a puncture whilst on the road and proceeded to repair it. Over an hour later and I had snapped my 3 tyre levers and still had part of the tyre off the rim. I took the bike to my local halfords, and to be fair they were absolutely great. Very helpful and didnt charge me a penny. Still took 2 of them and a good 45 minutes to get the tyre on the rim.

When my front tyre was shredded a few weeks ago, I decided to treat myself to some nice slicks (which really do make a difference in speed) and the levers which are a part of this review. Still took a good 30 minutes or so, and at first I was very cautious about how much pressure I applied; but then i decided - if they snap, then they snap and i will write a damning review. Instead they were amazing. I may even get around to changing my other tyre.

On a side note ... I also use mine as a door wedge

Update - 28-4-2012

I recently began cycling a new and longer route on my way home from work and the road is .. well not quite ideal for anything less than a tank. To cut a long story short; I was forced over by a bus and my back tyre ran alongside a raised drain, shredding the outer layer of my back tyre but not puncturing it. I didn't notice this until 2 days ago but decided to wait until today before changing it in case I had any problems changing to a new tyre (I rely on my bike for my work commute).

Last time I used these levers I was very cautious as I didn't want them to snap. This time I threw caution to the wind and really worked them. My thought being that I had invested in some good tyres and would therefore have less chance of using these levers for quite some time.

Thinking about it now ... I don't think I could snap these levers even if I tried (not with bare hands at least. I have upgraded this to the full stars now. They are a worthwhile investment.

This is a great looking product - that neatly packs into my saddle bag.
Very little efort needs to be used to remove what I know to be stiff walled tyres.
Great product! I hope it lasts!

I have had my levers for 3 years now. Very strong as they have metal inserts to prevent bending and flex, when removing the tyre. The nylon covering prevents any damage to the rim. That good I got a second set for my better half, who has just started riding.

Hadn't changed a tyre or tube myself before before but with one of these I did so in about ten minutes and since have done so again a couple of times more quickly. Great leverage, small enough to fit in a bag or deep pocket, strong material but being plastic did not damage or scratch the rim at all. Good product.

Nice lightweight item easy to carry in a jacket pocket and appears to be strong enough to do the job with no problems
No sharp edges and ergonomicly pleasing
On the principle of if it looks right it usually is right this thing works
Good value and well worth the small outlay

I have Gatorskin tyres on my bike & so it's unlikely that I'll get a chance to actually try these out. However, they are exactly what I expected. They seem to be very strong & a good shape for the job. They fit together nicely and come apart easily. They seem to be a good buy to me.

After having broken several plastic tyre leavers I decided to purchase after reading some of the reviews from previous purchasers as I have not yet had to use them they do look more substantial time will tell, good service fast delivery

Compact and sturdy. Road cycle tyres are still a challenge to remove with this but it's more robust than other, similar products I've tried.
