The Tyre Glider is a small and compact evolution of the tyre levers currently on the market. It’s unique design and features ensures that changing a bicycle tyre is now accessible to all individuals and completes the task in a more efficient manner allowing for the swift removal and installation of even the most tight-fitting tyres across all the bicycle disciplines.
Key Feature 1
The pending patent ‘wing’ clip on glides the tyre back onto the rim. Once the Tyre Glider encounters resistance, the ergonomic design allows the users to use the full force of their bodyweight in a downwards trajectory which results in the tyres resistance lowering to the point where it pops back onto the rim with ease.
Key feature 2
Wider scoop pulls more bead over the rim. As you then pull down unlike traditional tyre levers the Tyre Glider sits perfectly and securely onto the brake track of the bike wheel in a horizontal fashion. Push forward to remove.
Please note that the wing clip will fit tyre hook width up to 5 mm
