Bicycle tire lever test: The Wolf Tooth 8-Bit Tire Lever + Rim Dent Remover is equipped with two functions. On one side there is a plastic tire lever, on the other end there is an aluminum tool for removing dents from metal rims. A real jack of all trades among tire levers?
Wolf Tooth 8-Bit Tire Lever + Rim Dent Remover: First impression
The tire lever is designed for use alone or in combination with other multi-tools from the 8-bit system. The multitools from the series can be plugged together and the integrated magnets ensure reliable fixation. The workmanship is very good and shows a high level of quality. At the same level, the pleasant grip is convincing. Depending on the work, the thumb finds support either in the recessed grip or on the transverse grooves. In contrast to many tire levers that come directly as a set, the Wolf Tooth 8-Bit Tire Lever + Rim Dent Remover has to prove its qualities without any support.
The bicycle tire levers in the test
The stable construction and the length of 147 millimeters enable a very high level of force to be used, which even stubborn tires have to submit to. However, when prying off such tires, a second lever with a thinner shovel is required. In such cases, the tire lever cannot demonstrate its strengths as the sole tool. The missing spoke hook is also not helpful in this context. The bicycle tire lever with the Rim Dent Remover really scores points. The side facing the outer wall of the rim is extended, allowing dents to be removed gently. Important: The tool must NOT be used on carbon or aero rims!
