Look no further than these for your ideal tyre lever !! Well worth paying a bit extra for these great little levers
on 22 October 2016
I have now bought 5 sets of tyre levers, and these are by a mile the best - really they are. Metal levers ruin your rims, and so I've always used plastic ones - and they either snap in the cold, or are so bendy that I can't leaver the tyres off the rims.
I bought these latest ones almost out desperation. The quality of the plastic is spot on - and they immediately have that nice feel of quality. The picture is a little misleading, as it looks as if there are 3 levers. Actually there's just 2, and they stack together. Initially this annoyed me, because I usually put one lever in and hook over a spoke, then do the same a foot or so away along the rim, then lever off using the third - I thought they'd be no use; totally wrong!!. These 2 levers are all you need.
I've used these half a dozen times now at the roadside, and they're really slick. The stubby yellow bit hooks on a spoke, and then you use the larger lever to hook next to it, and the plastic is smooth enough to glide the rest of the tyre off the rim.
Initially I was put off because these levers are dearer than others. However when I look at how much time and money I've wasted on cheaper levers, these actually are not bad value. There's no upside to having a puncture - but at least with these beauties you don't have the frustration of numb fingers and wasted time. Go ahead - treat yourself and get these !!
