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.
The Pedros levers are the best I've ever used in 40 years of cycling. For the 'gram counters' they're light but still very strong and durable. I was able to break one once removing a Continental tire, which always seem to be tighter than others, but outside of that I love them. Plus they come in all flavors of bright snappy colors so you look cool when using them.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
