    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.

    Basic Gets the Job Done

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Easy to use and seemingly pretty tough for the price paid. I liked that it was a set of three and will probably snag another set to keep around the garage.

    Simple and reliable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These levers are lightweight and ideal for bringing with you on the trail. They click into each other as most popular levers do, which makes it easy to fit a pair into tight places like a saddle bag or shorts pocket. I trust any park tool product, and these work great.

    To be expected.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These levers aren't designed to last forever in a shop, but they work great getting thrown in my pack every time I go ride. I like how they clip together, how light they are, and that the bright blue color makes them easy to see in my pack. Minus one star because they feel like they might break if I put too much pressure on them.

    Decent backup levers

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    As many others have said below, these things are cheap and can do the job they're supposed to, but fall short on the tougher beads and are prone to breaking.

    Get some better ones for primary use and stash a couple sets of these in select spots just in case you need them.

    Better levers out there

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These aren't bad for a spare set in your car or office, but there are better options out there if you deal with tighter tire beads. I've also broken several trying to get tighter beads off rims.

    Work Well Enough For $3

      These work fine, nothing really to be too impressed or bummed on. They're plastic tire levers, never hurts to have spares laying around or multiple sets to leave in different packs, in the car, or around the house. That said, I have broken a few of these on rims when trying to get a tighter bead off. But I mean, for $3/set of three levers, pretty hard to go wrong. You can have like 8 sets for the price of what you'd pay for metal tire levers. I have a few tucked into my fanny pack that I rock during local rides.

      Work Well Enough For $3

      Save the day

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Pretty easy to use (even for a newbie) I received this set of tools and the next weekend I had to use them. It was my first time changing my road bike tubes and I made it thanks to this.

      Cheap and effective

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      My little brother manages to flat at least 2 times every time we ride. Despite the DH casings on his tires, he still manages to do it. So, I always end up fixing his flats. And since he has DH casings, his tires are a pain to pull of. Fortunately, these levers make short work of those tires.

      Multiple Sets

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These cost so little that its easy to have a few sets of these stashed all over the place...in the car, tool kit, pack, etc.

      They work great and are easy to use. After I picked up a sheet rock screw on the trail one day, I busted out my set and was able to break the bead on my tire real easy and get to work.
