Sette ST-309 Wide Tire Lever Set of 2
The Sette ST-309 Wide Tire Levers are made of nylon to ensure long life and they won't damage your rim or break easily. The ergonomic wide handle and ridged surface area give great grip and leverage. The ST-309 tire levers are sold in pairs and snap together for easy transportation.
So they aren't as strong as 20 dollar levers with metal cores but I have had a few of these things and never broke them. They are really slim, so they are much easier than some other levers to use. If you break these things you probably don't know what you're doing. Oh well, they cost like 2 bucks.
My go to levers for road and MTB tires. The thin profile gets under the bead very easily and the wide profile seems to get the bead to set a little easier. I still have a couple long tire levers around for really stubborn tires, but these work 99% of the time. Ive been using them for 5 years with no breakage thus far.
snapped in half first use, never had another chance to try them out.
Whatever they're made of, they work great! I've broke Pedros, I've broke park's. But these, I'm only broke once and I was really yankin on it. I have to say that I learned a little secret to help me remove tires from rims. Especially tough pesky wire beaded DH tires. I figured oil or grease would gum up under the rim. So I thought, what would be water soluble and still be slippery enough to make rubber slip better because soapy water drys too fast. KY JELLY! Combined with these Sette Tire levers, you can't go wrong. If I can get a Maxxis Wire Beaded Minion over my DH rims, using these levers, then anyone can get off their tires with these levers. I used them on my road bike the other day without any lube and they came off so easily. So 5 stars for Sette on this one! They got Max Leverage on the competition! And try the KY Jelly trick! I came up with it! It's funny, but it works and you'll never hate putting tires on after you try it.
Snapped in half after 5 minutes use.
