Silca Tire Levers Premio
What is it?
Ultra-premium tires levers optimized for carbon rims produced using a hybrid construction of forged alloy and reinforced nylon.
Who's it for?
The uncompromising cyclist who needs a solution for safely and efficiently dismounting tight tire-to-rim assemblies.
WHY WE DESIGNED IT:
Modern carbon rims and tires create a real challenge for traditional tire levers, and the new wave of tubeless setups have take the challenge to the next level. Tire fits are tighter than they’ve ever been, while carbon rims require non-metal levers to resist damage to the bead or brake surface during use.
Previous solutions to this problem have involved using a metal core inside of a plastic lever, however this solution has its own challenges as the core of the lever is where you can add the least stiffness and strength. This leaves metal core levers both less stiff and heavier than they need to be.
- Forged alloy blade
- Reinforced nylon Rim Shield safe for use on carbon rims
- Integrated spoke-hook wing
- 105mm x 25mm x 7mm (Perfect for Seat Roll Premio or EOLO Wallet)
- Weight (Two levers and neoprene sleeve) - 36 grams
Tire Levers Premio were designed for safe use on carbon fiber rims if used properly and as intended. To ensure proper use on your specific set of wheels, you MUST refer to your wheel manufacturer's guidelines on using tire levers.
In the meantime, here's some general advice from us.
Tire Levers Premio should ONLY be used to remove the tire. Never use a tire lever to aid in tire installation. This is not the intended use case for the tool and could result in damage.
Make sure the orientation of the blade of your tire lever is correct before use. Using a tire lever that is upside down is not only more difficult to use but it could result in damage.
We don't recommend using tire levers if you're using latex inner tubes.
