A friend loaned me his Pedro's Tire lever when I was changing a flat and I could IMMEDIATELY tell the difference over the standard tire lever I had with me. The increased width helps tremendously with grip and effectiveness, for which the tire lever is intended.
I definitively recommend these over standard narrow tire levers.
I purchased 2 immediately after I got home from the ride, where I had used the one offered by my riding buddy.
I have used other tire levers, but I have yet to find any that work as well as Pedros. If you are reading reviews trying to figure out which of the seemingly identical levers to get just stop reading the reviews and get the Pedros levers.
This is by far the best tire tool I have used. I've tried others and they don't do the job. I have one in each of our tool bags and keep a spare set in the garage for quick access.
After breaking the others, have found these to be the most durable, lightweight, packable tire levers. Better than others in performance, same cost good deal
Got these to assist in my first tire replacement. Easy to use, maybe not 100% necessary but certainly made it easier to get the tires on and off. Fit nice in my handlebar bag so I have them with me all the time to assist in any tube replacements on the roadtrail.
I was replacing my rear tire and it seemed to work well. Nice size, easy to find (bright yellow) grips well, one of them broke the tip. I have reshaped what is left with a grinder and it still works.
I'm changing my tires all the time stationary trainer tires to training tires to race tires and back. I only got these levers recently and am glad I did. Smooth edges, sturdy, and hold up to significant force. They're strong enough that I haven't had to use them as a pair yet, even with a particularly stiff, stubborn tire. I've gotten rid of my old levers. Great product.
Smooth and rounded enough that I am not worried about pinching the tube when taking off the tire. Easy to use and nice and light. Don't really think much about tire levers until you use once that don't work! I was using an older set up metal levers and always had problems. Once I got these, they are lighter and work so easily! Nice to upgrade something we use only when things are not going well, it is nice to know you can rely on these. Great tools!
I use the Pedros Tire Levers on vintage wired-on tiresrims as well as newer style wheels. These are the only levers I've used that haven't flinched when changing the old wired on tires - very rock solid. The nicely radiused contact edges reduce the probability of damaging the inner tube. Shortly after receiving The Pedros Levers, they were put to the test when I got a flat on the road. Removing and reinstalling the tire was easy and trouble free and got me back on the road in short order.
