Motion Pro BeadPro Tire Bead Breaker and Lever Tool Set
- Product Review (submitted on 13 May 2017):
The Beadpro tyre levers are a pretty pricey, but purposeful piece of kit. Sure, it doesn't offer you the comfort of a tyre workshop, where you sip your coffee and the bike gets a fresh set of tyres installed. But on a trip, it becomes very quickly an essential tool once a tyre has to come off.
I've been changing heidenau k60 scout front and rear, been told one of the trickiest tyres on the market, on my 660 tenere. It was hard work, but doable. It took few minutes and multiple repeats to break the bead, but, eventually, both came off. I was doing it at home, but using only my trail tools for practice. Important: carry a small amount of tyre lube with you. Without the lube I probably wouldn't make it.
I gave 4 stars because the shape of the irons is not optimal in my opinion (too flat). I needed a third iron (my 22mm ring spanner/tyre iron) and found it shaped better.
