Save your knuckles
How many times have you tried to change a tire with a tight bead only to crack your tire lever? Or worse yet, have you ever caught your knuckles on the wheel as your hand slipped while gripping a lever? That pain alone makes you want to march your wheel to a mechanic and hand over twenty dollars for him to fix it. Crank Brothers' Speedier Lever will save the day, and your knuckles.
The Speedier Lever features a traditional tire lever at one end and hook at the other. However, that's where all similarities cease. Instead of a solid handle, Crank Brothers designed an open loop. By placing your hand in the loop, leverage is gained for those tough-to-remove tires. More importantly, your hand is protected from slipping into the rim or cassette. No slipping means no cut knuckles.
The Crank Brothers' Speedier Lever will become an essential tool in your seatbag. It comes in One size and in Black.
