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.

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.

Average

Works fine on lighter weight casings.

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.

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

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.

Meh.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

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.
