Been using Pedros levers for several years now and refuse to use anything else! If I'm purchasing new levers, it's only because lost them or gave them away. These levers have never broken on me, even on the most difficult tubeless road and mountain tirewheel combos. Would highly recommend.
After one year and change these levers still get the job done. They have rescued many a stubborn tire from damage and make replacing tires easy. Leave the blue, black and coated metal levers on the rack at your LBS and get these. One exception would be those of forged aluminum from the company that starts with an L. The price is right and they do not gouge my seat bags. Good design at a reasonable price.
I bought these at the recommendation of one of your mechanics. I had grown tired of cutting my hands open with my old levers. From their initial use, these levers have been awesome. I can get flats changed much faster and swapping tires out on my bikes is a snap!
I've been using these levers for years, and have never had a problem with 'em. I've tried the other ones out there, and aside from a high dollar set of titanium levers, these are the best I've found.
They have a hook on one end, to latch the lever to a spoke, which is real helpful with today's tight fitting clinchers. The spoon edge is also small enough to get under the bead, without much hassle.
A friend loaned me his Pedro's Tire lever when I was changing a flat and I could IMMEDIATELY tell the difference over the standard tire lever I had with me. The increased width helps tremendously with grip and effectiveness, for which the tire lever is intended.
I definitively recommend these over standard narrow tire levers.
I purchased 2 immediately after I got home from the ride, where I had used the one offered by my riding buddy.
The Pedros levers are the best I've ever used in 40 years of cycling. For the 'gram counters' they're light but still very strong and durable. I was able to break one once removing a Continental tire, which always seem to be tighter than others, but outside of that I love them. Plus they come in all flavors of bright snappy colors so you look cool when using them.
