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

rotae tire levers with bead clip dh tyre leverWe 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.

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.

I always stick tire levers with sealant directly onto my brake pads. Why ever remove them?

You know who uses bead jacks? Those of us with arthritic thumbs. Even good technique requires some strength in fingers and thumbs that some days are hard to come by.

totally agree. I’ve been sorry to have tubeless on my road bike as, with my thumbs, I can’t get the tire off if I have a flat. Wonder if these would work for road tubeless?

Hate tight tires more than anything this promo video though is pretty deceptive it’s obvious that tire was super loose so really doesn’t show any performance or special benefits. Just a mechanic using tire levers same as any other .
