5 Things We Love About the PRO Tire Lever Set
April 22, 2015
Anyone who has changed a tyre knows that a lever is not just a lever. They come in different shapes and sizes, are made from different materials, and can speed you up or slow you down during a tyre change. 13-time EWC champion Juha Salminen once said that if you have to use a lot force when changing tyres, something is wrong. We couldn't agree more! To change a tyre quickly and easily, you not only need a great tyre changer, but you also need a great set of levers. We wish we could take the credit, but the 5-piece PRO Tyre Lever Set that we sell wasn't developed by Rabaconda. There were already really great levers on the market, so we chose the best one to compliment our 3-Minute Mousse Changer. Many of our pro riders are using our PRO Tyre Lever Set, and each of the five levers has its own special role to play. Why did we choose these particular levers, you wonder? Five reasons: 1. ROUNDED EDGES Many levers have sharp, pointy edges that can break the tube when you're trying to get the lever between the rim and the tyre. So first things first, we knew we had to find a lever with rounded edges. 2. THIN TIPS We also wanted levers with thin tips. This way you can fit them between the rim and the tyreÂ quickly and without excessive force. On the other end, you can hold all five pieces of the tyre lever set in your hand. 3. CURVED SHAPE The straight end works great for removing the tyre. The curved end gives you better leverage to fit your tyre back on the rim, which keeps you free from sweat and backaches. 4. LONG LENGTH Size is everything. The 38cm-long levers give you an advantage over shorter levers becauseÂ they are easier to maneuver. 5. STRONG MATERIAL None of these features would matter if the levers weren't also durable. These tyre levers are made from extra strong steel so they won't bend or break. Each lever weighs 400g. The Rabaconda 5-piece PRO Tyre Lever Set is the best on the market. We wouldn't sell it if it wasn't! When you combine it with our 3-Minute Tyre Changer, changing your tyres is not only easy and fast - it's even fun. Click here to check out the Rabaconda PRO Tyre Lever Set in our webshop.
