A little on the small (short) side for a MX tire iron but works really well. The "spoon" makes it easier to change tires without scratching black rims or pinching tubes than older style small tip tire irons.
Well made. look the part, spoon handle pretty comfortable to push on. was excited to use them. but, problem is the surface texture. it literally sandpaper grinds off the rim edge when you use these. tares right thru anodize with any use. cant use them as bought. i have to polish off the surface so its smooth. why should i have modify a tool just to have it work correctly?
This is the best tire spoon I have used so far. It is almost impossible to pinch a tube with how this spoon is made. Only complaint I could have is I wish they were a little longer but they do work fine as is, it can just be hard to pull them with some tires. Would recommend them to anyone. Also do yourself a favor and buy 3 not 2. Three spoons is so much easier than 2.
I like this tire iron because the wide flat spoon end seems to work better at eliminating tube nicks and tears on installation than the other tire irons that I've used. It's a total drag to get a new tire installed and then find out you've nicked the new tube and it won't hold air. This tire iron helps reduce the chance of that occurring.
Other tire irons are too bulky for the do it your selfer. These spoons work great! We use two of them along with the MP bead buddy for easy tire changes. The two together pay for themselves after one set of tire changes.
A little pricey but well worth it. I have been changing motorcycle tires for years and have tried every tire iron out there.The motion pro spoon type is the best hands down. No more pinching tubes and ruining your day riding.
I bought one of these a few years ago along with a 16" and still have it to this day, used it many times to change tires on my bike. I've even used it to change stiff thick dot knobby's and car/truck tires. Has never bent or broke on me, like it so much i bought another one recently, they're the perfect size to give you decent leverage but still fit in most packs. It helps a ton to have at least 3 maybe one being longer

The product description says, "ZInc plated." Am I to know or assume that this is zinc plated steel? Is the tool made from steel or aluminum? Tools of this type are made from both steel and aluminum. It would be good for the product description to state this clearly.
