CARBON RIM FRIENDLY TYRE LEVERS
The Silca Premio tyre levers are the answer to the problems that arise with removing tight tyres from a carbon rim.
Silca have resolved this issue by producing a tyre lever constructed from high strength forged aluminum, with a semi-rigid pad on the rim-side of the lever made of nylon. This means the lever can be thin and lightweight for carrying around, but still stiff and strong enough to handle the most stubborn of tyres, with the nylon pad ensuring no damage is done on contact with the rim.
On top of that, Silca have implemented a 'flex-core-zone' design which means the nylon pad conforms to the shape of the rim whilst levering the tyre off for the best possible distribution of load.
At 70-75% of the size of other levers on the market, the Premio are perfect for riders with tight tyres or tubeless set-ups that want a set of levers they can rely on, for when those inevitable punctures happen.
Few brands have been more intimately connected to the last 100 years of cycling than Silca. The Italian-born brand's legacy of legendary quality has seen company's pumps being passed down through generations of professional mechanics and cycling enthusiasts - riders who value the experience of bike maintenance and understand its performance value. Now based in the US, Silca's heirloom quality pumps have been joined by a growing selection of thoughtfully designed and stylish accessories.
