Carbon fiber tire levers? Why? Because it all adds up. And because they could.
The new Affinity Cycles Premium Carbon Fiber Tire Lever set is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, but also with really good design. Conceived in house, they’re designed by Aaron Panone of AARN, who’s done work for Geekhouse, Royal H Cycles, Independent Fabrication, and more.
As one would expect, they say it’s lighter than the competition. So, yes, you’ll save a few grams from your saddle pack or jersey pocket.
You need more reasons to get them?
OK, how about this: They’re made of Unidirectional and 3K woven carbon fiber.
They’re made in Brooklyn, USA. And, as of now, they’re being made to order in small batches, with plans to ramp up production eventually.
Affinity Cycles says they’re safe for carbon and alloy rims, and super strong and stiff thanks to their beveled, 3D design. We have a set in for testing and will verify all that shortly.
Retail is $25 per pair, available now through their website.
Did I mention that they are Carbon. Fiber. Tire levers?!?
