Rated 4 out of 5 by chorlton Worth the little extra
You can get perfectly serviceable levers for a little less money (Park's for example cost a quid or thereabouts less) but these are the best levers I've tried. Robustly made with a clip for attaching to the spokes so the levers don't move and a strong lip for lifting the tyre over the wheel. They fit together perfectly so you are less likely to lose one and come in a couple of different colours enabling you to match your bike and saddlebag (I'm sad enough that sort of thing matters to me). I've changed dozens of tyres and these have never snapped on me, with a set of decent levers, a set of mini tools, a spare tube and a decent mini pump or CO2 device you can pretty much cope with anything the road throws at you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gooders Simply the best
In my opinion there are no better levers available on the market and I think I've purchased many over the years. Most levers will work ok on Ksyriums etc but these are ideal if you are using carbon wheels where the tyres tend to be tight on the rim. A strong lever which is very well designed with little chance of nipping the inner tube. Literally worth their weight in gold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MTBAli It does the trick
I changed two 29 inch MTB tires using these levers so far, and they worked fine. They lock to the spoke which helps when changing a tire alone. i warped the tip of one of the levers a bit but it was my first time changing a tire and my techinque was all wrong. So there not "fool" proof but if you know what your doing they are perfect. Also i would rather the lever get warped then my rim so in that sense they are perfect.
Also nice and cheap. Got mine in red so they're easy to find.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jaqian Great for awhile
until they snap! Had two of these break trying to take off a tyre. To be fair had them a few years but think they get stressed and just snap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jarjar Great design, cheap price
The design of these levers is great, they hook onto the tyre bead and the curved shape and strong plastic makes them very stiff. They look awesome too, highly reccomended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous The best designed lever
These TacX levers are great for 5 reasons; Narrow blade point which hooks the tyre bead securely and has a perfect lever point for road clincher rims; the lever point is made structurally rigid by the clip together feature (what a great little design); theyre brightly coloured and easy to find; have a spoke clip which works even on balded spokes for single user tyre removal (Try doing this with Lezyne levers!); they're cheap. Ive used lots of different levers, Continental, Park, Lezyne, TacX are the best designed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Good strong kit
Good strong kit as above and great for aluminium wheel rims.
At 65 years old my hands are not strong and I caused tube damage with these levers until I realised the problem and rounded off the 'hooks'.
I would recommend and I would consider buying again.
