This tire lever does the trick!
Slycooper
I love the fact they nest together and are small and light enough to throw into my little emergency bag.

This specific lever that I purchased is very sturdy and worked well.

I have a number of bikes and each bike's toolbag is outfitted with a pair of these levers.

HINT: Buy two packs of these levers and you'll have enough for three bikes!

They have worked almost without exception to enable flat fixes and tire change outs while in the garage or on the road. (The one exception was when trying to install 700x27, yes 27, Panaracer wire beads onto a Shimano 540 wheelset for cyclocross - then I had to resort to the big boys - the beefy man-sized metal Park TL-5s)

HINT: These levers, unlike the TL-4s, have a very useful feature. See those hooks on the end? Nope, they're not for gutting fish on the pier or for cleaning out field fowl after shot-gunning in the cornfield - use them to hook onto a nearby spoke after levering a portion of the tire off your wheel's rim - very, very handy as a third hand!

These levers are a rare bargain and a standout example of quality and utility in today's corncucopia of cheap import tools - get a pair for your kit or bag!

Context: I ride about 120 miles a week and spend much of my free time repairing/refurbishing/building bicycles.

I love these tire levers because they are plenty sturdy enough, and most importantly, small and lightweight. I have a set of the CrankBros steel ones(which are AWESOME), but I don't ride with them because they're obnoxiously big and heavy. These lil guys fit into a tiny top bar-mounted pack meant for gelpacks --- along with a multi tool, a patch kit, and a squirt gun :)

As someone noted above, they may break or bend on high-tension wheels -- he mentioned 23x700s, and I've found the same to be true on my Contis as well. I've done tons of work on kids' bikes, and that is usually the only other situation when one of these levers bends or breaks. (Stripping little kids' bike tires is a PITA!!!)

But for general usage, these can not be beat. I am just now replacing a set I've had for several months (and as you might tell, I use them a LOT) and that's because I handed them off to a friend who had a blowout near my neighborhood. I'm doubling up on my order, actually.

I bought these due to the Park Tools reputation.
They worked well on wider tires (MTB). Unfortunately they don't work on the Continental Ultra Gatorskin 23 x 700C tires on my road bike.

The spoke hooks on two of the levers broke off after a few uses; the end used for prying the tires off have bent backwards, making them completely useless. Granted, these tires are incredibly difficult to install and remove. However, I expected a Park Tools product to be up to the challenge.

The only tool that works on my Continental tires is the Crank Brothers speed lever.

As a wheelchair user, I have a tendency to get flats every so often. And it's a whole lot cheaper, and convenient, learning how to change them yourself than to go to a bike shop every time. I've been making do in the past using things like flathead screwdrivers to take the tires off, but the metal has definitely caused damage to my rims over the years. Not to mention the fear of having the screwdriver itself tear a whole into the inner tube (in situations where you're just repairing, and not replacing).

My fear when I picked these up were that they wouldn't hold up against the tension of my wheelchair road tires, but having finally had occasion to use these a few months back, I can happily say they did their job, and held up admirably.

I gave up on these levers because the plastic composition is too slippery to grip the tire and they serve as a poor lever to get a tire bead over the rim. The levers slide too much. I have stiff 700x23c tires and wheels. It is possible the levers might work better on MTB wheels with more flexible tires.

These tire levers are light and snap together. They don't take up much room unlike other brands like the Pedro lever.

They are also pretty cheap so you can buy a bunch of them to put in the tire-patching kits of every bike you own and would not be a hardship if someone stole it off the bike.

They are not as strong or stable as the Pedro but pack smaller and are half the cost/lever. They do tend to be a little bit bendy and the spoon area is even a little more bendy. They do fit into the bead area a little bit better and because the spoon is so small and thin it makes it easier to slide them in without worrying about pinching the tube.

The downside is that it is hard to slide the lever sideways to "unzip" the tire from the bead. The plastic is softer and doesn't slide as well on the rim like the Pedro levers do. It all depends on how badly one needs lever. In a bad situation I'd probably prefer the Pedro but all in all I've never broken one of these and I have broken the Pedro levers (darn near put an eye out with the piece that flew off too.) I think it would be hard to snap one of these as it would probably just bend before it broke. They are not super-stiff. Instead of breaking the lever would just bend and snap out of the bead. Unfortunately this issue makes these levers a bit harder to use on "tough cases" where a tire doesn't want to mount. I've never had a tire I couldn't get of with these or broken one but I did have a few I had to struggle with.

Usually when I'm putting a tire on in my workshop and it is fighting me I just pull out the Kool stop tire jack and that just muscles the tire on. Once a tire has been on for a while it is usually easier to get it back off as it breaks in a bit.
