Really happy with my Pedro’s but have only tried ‘std’ one and the soma’s otherwise. The Soma steel inner ones worked fine but eventually the plastic simply broke off from the steel inserts, making the useless (more likely to cause damage). The Pedro’s have lasted longer, and not been defeated by any tyre (I’ve tried)
I really like Lezyne’s plastic powerlevers- they’re not long, but they have the best hook I’ve used so they get under tight tyres better than most, and they don’t need as much slack to shift the tyres. What I use for my dualplies, anyway, never met a tyre yet tey can’t shift, even the defective overtight Schwalbe I had.
I have the shuttle levers and they work nicely for tight XC/AM rims such as DT 5.1D and the like. However they aren’t a full on DH lever though and I did snap the end off the big one on my first set after a couple years worth of use.
They won’t F*** your rims up like a big DH lever though.
