SILCA have reimagined the tyre lever for the era of carbon rims.
Rather than using a metal core (which puts the strongest part of
the lever at the least efficient point for stiffness and strength)
they've used a layered design.
The layer which contacts the rim is nylon, so as not to damage
carbon rims. This is then backed with a sturdy but lightweight
forged aluminium layer, which provides the necessary strength to
cope with tight-fitting modern tyres but keeps the harder surface
safely out of reach of the rim.
Thanks to that metal blade the Premio levers are 25-30% narrower
than competing designs, making them ideal for very tight tyres and
for tubeless seups where access to the tyre bead is very
The buzz around these is incredible, we've had great reports of
their efficiency and ease of use - check out David's preview on the
