The simple, no-pinch tyre tool.

TyreKey is the tyre-tool that makes changing an inner tube simple.

The double groove glides round the rim, lifting the tyre off with ease. The unique claw reinstalls the tyre in seconds without touching the inner tube, eliminating the risk of pinch-punctures.

  • Works best with road tyres from 18-35mm*
  • Suitable for all rims including Carbon 
  • Rims with external width from 18mm to 28mm
  • Designed and manufactured in North Yorkshire, UK.
  • Dimensions: 148 x 48 x 6mm.
  • Weight: 20g.

*some tyres with very stiff bodies (e.g. Schwalbe Marathon Plus) may only be compatible up to 28mm.

 

What tyre sizes does it work on?
TyreKey works best on road tyres between 18mm and 35mm, as a guideline. As long as the tyre can be squashed enough to fit into the claw part of the tool, you will be able to use TyreKey to install your tyre. This means that some tyres with very stiff bodies (e.g. Schwalbe Marathon Plus) may only be compatible up to 28mm.

 

What rim sizes does it work on?
TyreKey works on pretty much all currently available road rims. It can be used on rims with external width from 18mm to 28mm. It can be used on rims of any depth and diameter.

 

Is it safe for carbon wheels?
Yes, TyreKey can be used safely on carbon. As with any tool, TyreKey should be used with care, but under normal use the nylon material will not scratch or damage carbon rims. We have tested it extensively on a range of carbon rims with no ill-effects.

We advise using your discretion on disc brake specific rims which have been painted to the top of the rim wall. When reinstalling tyres on this style of rim, the design of TyreKey means it is sitting directly on the painted surface.

 

Does it work on tubeless?
Yes, TyreKey works great for installing tight tubeless tyres!

 

Why would I use TyreKey instead of traditional tyre levers?
When installing a tyre, the design of a traditional lever is trying to fit between the tyre bead and rim wall. This effectively increases the circumference of the rim and makes a tight tyre even harder to install than it would already be. It also increases the chance of pinching the inner tube, either between the tyre bead and rim wall or with the tyre lever itself. TyreKey avoids both of these potential issues whilst providing extra leverage.

 

I already have two built-in tyre levers, they’re called thumbs! Who is TyreKey for?
If you can remove and re-fit a tyre with just your hands, great! In an ideal world, we’d all do it by hand. TyreKey has proven useful for very tight tyre/rim combinations like tubeless ready combos or riders with weaker hands, arthritis, mechanics fitting many tyres a day, and riders with cold and wet hands who just want to get home ASAP!

 

Why do you suggest finishing installation over the valve? I’ve always been told the opposite!
We find this method helps to keep the inner tube correctly located, further reducing the chance of the tube becoming trapped between the tyre and rim. As long as the tyre bead is sat in the central channel of the rim and the valve is pushed up into the body of the tyre, it is no harder to finish installation at this point than anywhere else around the wheels circumference.
