Make tire changes easier.

We have learned the hard way the things that do not substitute for a tire lever: Metal spoon, screwdriver, fingers, floor pump thumblock, prayer and much more. The humble tire lever, in this case the Park Tool TL-1 Set-of-3 Tire Levers, is something so simple yet so vital for happy & self-sufficient bike riding. They're good for helping you fix countless flats thanks to their durable nylon construction. They are tough to bend and even tougher to break, but likewise they peel back the bead of your clincher tire without doing a whit of damage to your rim. Don't leave them behind because if you do and you flat you are totally screwed.

The TL-1 is a 3-pack of levers. You can loan one and lose one because you really only need one to fix a flat. There are a few wheels out there (Campagnolo rims come to mind) where the tire fit is so tight you may need 2.

Good for the Price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Easy and light to throw into a backpack or saddle bag, but certainly easy to brake if you crank on them too hard. For just a few bucks, I always like having a couple of these on my bike or around the house

They Work Well Enought

    I don't have any complaints about these little guys. They get the job done. They are replacing some old levers I got from Wal-Mart. Can't say there is a big different. The price point on these makes it easy to tack them onto a larger order.

    second pair

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Better for your rim than metal, lighter, and easier to pack around. These are my main pair now and I keep my metal levers for the real pain in the butt rims/tires

    Work great for a couple bucks

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Everyone needs tire levers. I keep a couple sets of these laying around just so I can find them when I need them.

    prefer the TL-4

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    pros: skinny, light and fit in your bag. plus you get 3 of them.
    cons: more prone to breaking than others.

    I personally prefer the park tool TL-4 which backcountry/cc don't seem to carry. Harder to break, and they seem to work better for me.

    prefer the TL-4

    Dont use a Screwdriver!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Remember this old saying? Well, here you have a screwdriver stiff set of tire levers. Dont use them. They are the worst I have ever seen yet.

    Great tool for the price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Keep some in the pack for trailside changes but I've also used these in the shop.

    Good tool for the price, but they are on the flimsy side. I haven't had one break on me yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if one did.

    Like the hook for attaching to the spoke and the fact that they stack together for compact storage.

    Staple

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It seems like this is the one tool you can never have enough of. The price is right, and they are light, portable and pretty strong provided you don't try to use them as a crowbar. Keep a few extra on hand as they tend "to walk."

    Function well, good price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These tire levers work quite well for almost all tires. I had some struggles mounting a wire bead 2-ply downhill tire but that's not surprising, you almost need metal reinforced tire levers for that. These are not reinforced with metal but they are still quite strong and work well for most tires out there. It's a good price for a three pack so even if you break one you still have two left.

    Life changing

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Much like a pair of Velco sneakers, these tire levers will change your life... or at the very least get you back up and running again.

    Basic lever but a little soft

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a set of these for a few years now and they function fine. Until I tried a pair of Pedro's levers which are even stiffer, I found that these are a little bit on the soft side. Especially when mounting or dismounting a pair of newer GP4000S, I found these a little bit on the soft side.

    Not as good as the Pedros ones

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    But they sure are cheap.



    Pedros' have better hooks for the spoke, they're thicker overall, they stick together better, and they definitely feel stronger. These are a little flimsy for trying to mount a tubeless tire.



    But again--cheap.

    Really, Reviewing A Tire Lever?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I think the fact that these things have so many reviews is a good indication of how good they are. They are cheap, strong, and hassle-free. They may be a bit more bulky than other options but they are small and light enough for me. And sure if you really crank on them, they'll snap, but I've snapped fewer of these levers than any other brand.

    Great to have around!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought these as a back up set of tire levers. I'm very happy with this purchase. I take this set with me on the road. They are very light, durable, economical and compact. Plus purchasing an extra set won't break the bank.
