The tire lever, though seemingly one of the simplest and most basic of cycling tools, is one commonly used by almost every cyclist, and unfortunately, one often responsible for unnecessary frustration. The tyre lever, though seemingly one of the simplest and most basic of cycling tools, is one commonly used by almost every cyclist, and unfortunately, one often responsible for unnecessary frustration. Really, what is more fun than flatting far away from home, being thrilled you lugged that spare tube and pump, and then having your tire levers snap in two? Pedro’s award winning, universally loved tyre levers feature molded box construction and a proprietary plastic composite blend that makes them the strongest levers available. The unique chisel tip shape easily inserts beneath the tire bead and the slightly thicker shape keeps the lever securely in place. Additionally, the bold shape of the lever and helpful dual spoke hooks makes removal of even the tightest tyres a simple task. Pedro’s tyre levers are available in bright yellow, pink, green, and orange making them easy to spot in the shop or in the woods making sure you don’t lose them. Do yourself a favor and give them a try. Award winning, universally loved, and available in bright yellow, pink, green, and orange colours. Molded box construction and proprietary plastic blend makes these the strongest levers available Chisel tip shape is easy to insert beneath the bead and the slightly thicker shape keeps the tire lever from slipping Bold shape makes it easy to remove the tightest of tires without bending or breaking. The number one tip is to make sure that you push the tyre bead to the centre of the rim all the way around the wheel. Most rims have a shape that makes the centre a smaller diameter, so pushing the bead to the centre means the bead will need to be stretched less to get onto/off the rim. This is useful for removal and installation of tires. On some tyres with very stiff steel beads, the bead may creep back out of the centre and you might need to push it back to the centre. Traditionally, it has been suggested that it is best to start removing a tyre opposite from the valve. The same is true for installation. However, when dealing with tight tyres, and especially tubeless tires, it works much better to finish at the valve for installation and start near the valve for removal. The above techniques generally allows for removal of tires using one lever, prying the bead off the rim, then sliding the lever it along the rim to remove the rest of the bead. If the tire is still tight enough that I cannot slide one lever, it is time to use two. Insert two levers under the bead about 6 inches apart. Double check that the the bead is still pushed to the middle, then pry the bead off the rim using both levers at the same time. This will spread the load over the two levers and usually gets enough bead off the rim to allow the sliding technique to be used.
