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.

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.

Length of levers

Just in case anyone out there is wondering on the length of these. They are 11.5 centimeters in length from end to end.

Great to have around!

  • Gender: Male
  • 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.

Best tire levers I've ever used!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

They are economical, light weight-and they work great. I can usually change a tire with one lever but sometimes need two. They fit nicely in my small saddlebag. Work so much better than the aluminum I had before. A set of these, spare tube, and a CO2 pump and you're golden out on the road when you flat.

Dependable and economical

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Park value again and again! Get some if you're constantly losing your levers.

they're tire levers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Simply put, they are solid levers that last a long time.

Value Levers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I look at tire levers as consumables... The main reason is because I always lose them! These work just fine -- they aren't amazing, but they don't snap after a few uses like other plastic levers I've used. And with three levers that snap together, you get a lot for your buck. Break one, and who cares? Break a second (or lose it like me!), and you have time to order some more!

Works, kinda

I'd look for another set of more robust levers if you are looking for something to use on a daily basis. This will snap when working on tighter beads, like performance road tires or downhill casings. Or you can order a bucket full and be sure to wear eye protection.

good value

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For the price, these are great, especially the wide/flat end of them. Easy to wedge under the bead of the tire without pinching the tube, and easy to separate the tire from the rim with 2 of them. 2 has been sufficient for all the jobs I've had to do, I just leave the third at home, it's not any more useful to me on the road or trail.

One drawback is the skinny end of the lever. They get shredded if you do anything substantial with them. Not really worth it. They should have just left that off and saved the plastic. For the other end though, worth getting some.

really sturdy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These levers are REALLY sturdy. They never feel clumsy or that they might break.

Good Levers

Does what is should. Little bit skinnier lever seems like it's a little easier to get under the bead than wider styles. Only complaint is that it doesn't come with a lifetime warranty like Pedros. That being said, these levers feel really solid to me, but other people seem to break them a lot.

These babies are okay. Not the worst tire levers I've used, but certainly not the best... They tend to bend and break used with stiff hoops and tough beads, and cracking knuckles and cursing while changing your tires is never a good time. However, for the price? They make one hell of a handy back up when you discover them at the bottom of your riding bag under the granola bars. Never hurts to have extras.

Fine within limits...

I own a roadie w 700x25 tires, and a mountain bike on which I periodically change tire sizes. The roadie tires are a cinch - a gentle swipe with just one of these will do fine. But if your considering these for a mtn. bike bike tire size above 2.1", you probably want to get something more substantial. I had no problem getting 1.9" tires off the rim when needed, can just about manage on the 2.1", but these are absolutely hopeless on the 2.3" Kendas - can't get more than one lever secured. I am going to try some quality metal levers to see if that does the trick.

Responded on

Update: I correct as follows: nothing to do with the tire size but rather the bead type. the 2.35 Kendas mentioned before are wire bead which is what makes them hard to budge w. these levers. As long as your tires are foldable then you're fine. Had no problems getting 2.4" Nobby Nics (foldable) on and off with these!

Pretty good

These are tough to beat for the price and weight. I have some Cutter levers that are really heavy compared to these. I have broken a couple of these on super tight tires, but if you have normal fitting tires, these will be just fine.

Pretty good

Better levers out there

These are probably the worst set of levers I've used. The really don't have any bite to them and don't do a very good job removing the tire from the wheels. The few times I've used them, I keep pulling and jamming to try and get them to work, finally someone else I'll be riding with will just pull out a better set. For $3 who cares, but you'd think Park would put their name behind something a bit better.

Works great for emergencies

These tire levers work great, however, they tend to bend and break after multiple uses if you have stubborn tires. On the bright side, they are a lot safer for your rims, tubes and tires than a screwdriver is.

Better than a stick!

You need to carry them. You like blue. What else do you need? Won't mess up your snazzy rims, and won't cut up your hands. Yeah, you need 2 for those nasty Easton rims too - and you might break one while cursing and yelling to just get over the damn rim woulda!! - so better carry all 3. If these aren't enough work on your hand strength and technique - or buy metal levers.

Small and Handy

These little guys do the job well. They haven't broken yet like our Park levers in the shop that brake soo easily. They are also a great size to put in a seat bag or jersey pocket. Will definetly buy these again.

Gets the Job Done

These guys get the job done, but they're really nothing special as tire levers go. A little chunky but not bad at all, and reasonably tough but not exceptionally so. In the course of last season I broke two of these. The shape is nice, though the hooked side is prone to breaking, especially on particularly tight rims or tight new tires. My old Continental levers (which were just a flat piece of plastic) lasted much longer and took up less space in the pocket, and I have yet to find levers shaped as usefully as my old Specialized Pry Babies. But hey, for $2.50, these get the job done just fine, won't dent your rims, and help you not be that guy who rides without the means to change his own tire. And being that guy sucks.
