Rapha Tire Levers? Dec 30, 2012

I can just hear the word now: leeeverrrs. Rapha Japan’s Facebook page is filled with a ton of great riding photos but the new Rapha-branded tire levers are quite popular at the moment. I wonder when these will go into circulation?

    These are definitely a faster and more stylish way to remove your tire than the tacky Pedros ones.

    I wonder why anyone would pay Rapha prices for a re-badged Pedros tire lever?

      Because they’re black and in a cursive font.

         and only 50 USD.

            just used mine i got from Providence CX race last year and found out they don’t work half as well as an authentic PEDROS lever. Upon comparison you can tell the Ralph one is a sad knockoff… surprized they let this one slip.

            Dude… they are made by Pedros. Promise.

            Well they skimpped on the bead popping action on the rapha branded ones. The lip is visually smaller, was shocked upon comparison.
