Rotae Tech have released a clever set of tire levers that feature a bead clip to help riders install and remove some of the tightest fitting tires going. The two-pronged design helps you fit that final part of the bead by preventing the tire from prizing itself back out of the rim bed on either side of the portion you’re working on. Here’s more.
Rotae Tire Levers with Bead Clip
We really like the look of these non-traditional tire levers from Rotae Tech. They are injection molded from super tough 30% glass-filled Nylon 6, said to give the levers the superior strength and rigidity necessary for working with tight fitting tires such as those with a DH casing.
Specifically, it is the bead clip that catches our attention. It holds the tire in place during installation, freeing up your second hand to help slide the tire bead over the rim (see it in action below). If this proves strong enough, it will undoubtedly make the life of many a rider and mechanic much easier, particularly when installing tire inserts too.
The Rotae Tire Lever Set also doubles as a brake pad separator that also houses a Presta valve core removal tool, making this one of the most versatile tire levers on the market.
The levers are 130mm long and 30mm wide. The clip sits 26mm offset from the main body of the lever.
