Better than keys – in every way!
Prestaratchet advances the art of wrenching bicycles. Consider the irony of using an Allen or Torx® key on your expensive and delicate bike parts. Tools like that come free with un-assembled furniture. Isn’t your bike worthy of better? Prestaratchet is faster, safer, less expensive, longer lasting and more comfortable than any key.
Prestaratchet is always in position to get the whole job done. Spin a loose bolt snug with the thumb-wheel, then tighten with the handle. Flick the reverse lever with the same thumb to loosen. You can operate Prestaratchet with one hand and hold a brake cable with the other. Tighten and loosen as many times as you want to get the perfect cable position – and never move your hand or remove the tool in the process.
With an Allen or Torx® key, each time you tighten or loosen a bolt – you remove and re-insert the tool multiple times. Twisting, turning and inserting – each time is a chance to get the Allen or Torx® key crooked and damage expensive bicycle bolts. With Prestaratchet’s reversible ratchet and thumb-wheel, the tool stays on-the-job without any additional insertions.
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 Design 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.
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
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.
Eventually the tip of your most commonly-used Allen or Torx® keys can wear out. Then you must replace the whole tool. If it came in a set, getting a match can be time consuming or difficult. With Prestaratchet, you simply replace the bit. The Ratchet handle is made of the finest tool-grade metals and will likely last a lifetime.
Prestalever is different… designed from the start with real-world experience on bicycles.
