SILCA Tire Levers Premio

SILCA has introduced Tire Levers Premio, a new set of top-of-the-line tire levers that are optimized for carbon wheels and tubeless setups. Price is $18.

Modern carbon rims and tires can create a challenge for traditional tire levers, and the new wave of tubeless setups have taken the challenge to the next level. Tires fit tighter, while carbon rims require non-metal levers to resist damage to the bead or brake surface.

The Tire Levers Premio pair a high strength forged aluminum lever with a semi-rigid Nylon Pad on the rim side of the lever. This allows the overall lever to be thinner, yet stiffer and stronger than either full plastic or metal core designs.

Tire Levers Premio utilize a designed in Flex-Core Zone which allows the Nylon Pad to conform to the curvature of the rim during use for better distribution of load.

Previous solutions to tight tire fits and carbon rims have involved using a metal core inside 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.

Due to the high-strength full-metal blade, Tire Levers Premio are climed to be 25-30% narrower than other lever designs, making them ideal for tight tires and tubeless setups where access to the tire bead is lessened.
