 These Power Levers from Lezyne are a bit lager than the normal levers that you may have in your cycle bag.
1 :  Good Point      Extra size means extra leverage which is great for the tight tyres.
2 :  Bad Point     They may not fit into your cycle bag,  hence they would probably be better for your home maintenance kit.

I personally love the size of theses levers, it allows you to get a good grip due to their size.
 Made of a fiber reinforced Composite Matrix for increased strength.
 Nice Spoke hook so stays nice and firm on the spoke.

 The tip fits nicely into into the bead.

 Due to the extra size of the Lezyne Power Levers you can easily remove the tyre one handed! 
 Replacement is easy as well, nice design with the tip allowing it to be guided by the rim.

 Great for road bike tyres.

 On the 700x40cc tyre the Power levers XL made light work of the job.

 One lever from start to finish. 

 Get the tip in and under the rim and use the extra size to get more leverage. 

 And it is off. 

 On replacement I found I had to use the two XL Power Levers to get the tyre back on the rim.

 The Lezyne Power Levers XL was going great until I run out of strength refitting of the 700x40cc tyre.

 Just needed that last bit of strength to finish it off! 

 The final bit.

 And there it is, back on with the help of the second Power XL Lever.

  The Schrader deflater on the other side of the spoke hook.


 Verdict on the Lezyne Power Lever XL priced around £3.99 to £4.99.

1 : Ease of use. I found the extra size to be the key benefit of the Lezyne Power Lever XL
Easy to remove the air with the Schrader deflater, and the spoke holder worked a treat. the only down side was they are little on the large side for a small seat bag.  Points awarded 4

2 : Quality of manufacture. Nice feel and design, tough as well. Points awarded 5

3 : Gentle on the rims with no scratch. I did not get the impression the XL would scratch your rims.   Points awarded 5

4 : Value for money. Great value at this price worth having a set in your home maintenance kit. Points awarded 5

 Total Score 19 out of a possible 20
