Details
Often refered to as a "bead jack" tyre lever, this is the answer to people who find getting tyres on and off a pain, especially useful for tight beaded tyres or rims which have been made slightly oversize.

Might as well be made of cheese. It just bent and bent and bent and that last bit of my 28 Conti TourRide tyre just stayed exactly where it was.

ProsWorks well
Does the job. Great for new folding tyres that are tight out of the box and saves ripping the skin off your thumbs. Haven't pinched a tube using this yet.
Gets some serious flex when being used but it hasn't given way on me yet (even though I bought a 2nd one just in case but No. 2 hasn't seen a single use yet). I've lost count how many tyres I've used it on.
Reliable and robust.
Highly recommended.

ProsEffective, straightforward, enabling
Often had trouble fitting Schwalbe Marathon Plus on a Brompton 16 inch wheel but this makes it simple.
And it's good to carry around too.
Wish I'd known about it before.

ProsLight and portable , tough, does the job.
I have not had to use this by the road side YET, but I am sure this would make that refitting job that much easier. I have used this tool in the workshop and it really does work saving pinched tube and sore fingers. I have arhritic fingers and this makes the job of refitting tha much easier. Looks to be made of a tough material, is light and compact. The additional tyre level is also a good idea but you still need another two levers for removing a tyre

ConsSeems a little flimsy
ProsGets last bead of tyre on with ease
I bought this as I was having trouble getting trainer tyres on my wheel. Having pinched a couple of inner tubes and got sore fingers and thumbs, decided I had to find something to make it easier. This is just the job. Maybe a little flimsy, but works well. I now carry one of these with me when I an out as it is always more difficult to get the tyre on when you are at the side of the road and cold and wet. Recommended.

My only issue was why I havent has one of these before! I broke 2 normal levers and got one pinch flat trying to fit tyres to some new wheels. A quick response from SJS and a few no stressful minutes with the Var and all done!

Prosgood value, small, neat and works
A brilliantly elegant solution for tight tyres.
Two tyre levers, one neatly stows in the other. The outer provides a tyre bead jack that allows that last segment of a tyre bead to be eased on the rim without broken thumbs and fingers.
Small enough to go in your jersey pocket. However, it might be a stretch on wider tyres (greater than 28 mm).

Constoo long,
Prossolid, strong, practical
Great at its job and saves you a lot of hassle.

Wanted it for my Scicon Aeronaut saddlebag. But sadly its too big for this diminutive bag as the levers are longer than i had expected.

14cm long
2.5cm wide
2.5 cm high

They are so good though that its still worth carying them

Prosworks, light, cheap
I recently bought some new fulcrum wheels and conti Gatorskin hardshell tyres which were a nightmare to get on. Using this tool took the effort out of it and its light enough to keep in a pannier or saddle bag incase of puncture.

ProsStrong, light, functional
Why didn't I get one of these things a long time ago? If you compare the amount of time, swearing, blood and bruising Var tyre levers save you with the relatively minor outlay required, there's just no decision to make. Buy them. Every bike tool box should have a set.

ProsStops swearing
I put 2 new tyres on with this baby this afternoon. The tyres were same model (a really tight bead) as a previous puncture change which took me ages, involved a lot of swearing and blisters. The lever worked brilliantly & took all the frustration out of getting the last bit of bead over the rim.

how robust the tyre lever is only time will tell. but for the moment all is good

Got a set of these as a Christmas present. Just bought two more so that I can have them in the tool kits of all my bikes. Used them to get some tyres back on that snapped a Park lever getting off. With large tyres can be a bit fiddly to get over the tyre and then to get off again.

How did I ever manage without one of these? Used for the first time yesterday and so easy to fit that last section of tyre that usually had me reaching for a screw driver after my thumbs got sore. Definite must have if you have difficulty getting that final bit of tyre back on.

Probably the best tyre levers for making sure that you can get any tyres on and off. Other tyre levers might be a bit more compact in your seatpack but it's worth it just to impress your mates.
