Remove tires in seconds!
Prestalever is Quicker and Speedier than anything you’ve ever used. Our Patent-Pending Rim Hook with Honeycomb reinforced box-section is the key to our faster, safer, easy-to-use tool.
As you scoop the tire bead with the Prestalever, the slot underneath we call the “rim hook” naturally drops inside the rim. It prevents the Prestalever from slipping out, so you don’t drop the bead. The rim hook stops the Prestalever at an easy-to-hold angle on the side of the rim. Then you simply glide the lever around the rim, and the tire peels-off as you go.
The Prestlever is made of slippery Nylon, greatly reducing the force needed to remove tires. When you’re done, twist the Prestalever 90 degrees to raise the rim hook out of the rim. Our box-section design allows the twist-action to easily stop at 90 degrees so the lever slides out easily.
Install tires without strain.
Our thick tip on the tire installer-end prevents catching and pinching tubes inside your tire. The bead-grabbing edge gives the right balance between leverage and lifting force, making it as easy as possible to complete tire installation.
Presta Core tool is now essential.
Even Bicycle Presta tubes now include removable cores. This gives you the added option of using tire sealant inside the tube of your standard tire. Removable cores are not always fully tightened at the factory. A loose core could cause slow leaks, or could even become unscrewed while using inflation devices. Tubes should be checked during installation and regularly afterwards for Presta core tightness.
Don’t carry an extra tool for chains!
The Prestalever quick-link breaker is an effective emergency tool if you need to remove your chain on the road. The Patented design is the creation of Prestacycle’s good friend and associate – cycling engineer Tomo Ichikawa. It removes the quick-link, which is the only function you need. When quick links are installed, pedal pressure can lock the installed quick link without any tools. For regular chain service, we still recommend a quick link tool, but with our feature, you no longer need to carry a separate tool with you on the bike.
Quick-link removal Instructions:
- Place the quick Link near the top of the crank
- Jump the chain forward one tooth so the quick-link stands-up
- Use the slot on the Prestalever to push down FIRMLY.
(The crank tooth will support the other end from underneath.)
T-handle Tubeless Tire Plugger
(optional parts required – Available 12/15/2021)
The center of the Prestalever has threads which accept our Tubeless tire plugger. It then forms a T-Handle for effective, centered pushing of the included “Bacon Strips” used to seal large cuts in Tubeless tires.
Third-hand Tool for Hand Installation
Certain tires have delicate beads. Tire manufacturers recommend hand-installation only. The Prestalever can be used as a “third-hand” tool. When you hand-install the bead in one direction, the tire starts lifting-out at the other end. Insert the lever at one end to hold the bead, then use BOTH hands to install the tire from the other end.
Tubless Tire Removal (or any Difficult Tire)
The Prestalever is the #1 tool for removing difficult tires. Using two or three can help with the toughest tire and wheel combo’s. Insert a lever, but do NOT flip it yet. The rim hook will hold the lever in place, but unlike traditional levers that hook onto spokes, the bead will NOT be tensioned. You can still fit-in more Prestalevers. Insert the levers spaced about 6 inches apart, then flip them all … one-at-a-time. Even the toughest tires will come right off the rim in seconds.
Prestalever is different… designed from the start with real-world experience on bicycles.
