Great improvement for little hands
My daughter is 5 years old and cycles well, but lost a lot of her confidence due to brake levers that she couldn't reach and that just didn't do enough to allow her to brake quickly. I fitted these levers instead of the ones that came on her Claude Butler 18" bike and she's doing much better. They work! She can reach them and she doesn't have to squeeze as far to get a response... (and no it wasn't that the brakes just needed tightening!).

Small size ideal for 6 yr old
Bought as replacement levers as originals too difficult for child's hands to use easily. Only slightly smaller that originals, but much easier to use due to pivot pint and resulting arc. Allan key adjustment screw used to tweak brake responsiveness very easy to set up for use.

good quality seems astonishingly good at the price. I put these on my daughter's bike a month ago and they have been working fine

Excellent replacement for a broken brake lever
Bought this is a replacement for a broken kids brake lever, sturdy construction unlike the cheap plastic one that broke off. Also pleasantly surprised that the replacement lever meant for smaller kids hands had a smaller reach than the one it replaced so a great improvement on the one it replaced. They come in a back of two so decided to replace them both. Fantastic value I was expecting something twice the cost

Great replacement v-brake levers
Bought as replacement for grandson's bike after the supplied (plastic) levers fell apart. These are metal, so should stand up to being used! Easy to fit and adjust to suit smaller hands.

Good for the money
Fitted to daughter's mtb. Work well and she can reach to use them OK. Nothing special, but at price point I really can't complain!

My son fell off his mountain bike and snapped the brake lever. Due to his age and size I needed a smaller brake lever. Wiggle had loads to choose from and I chose the Tekro.
Not known what to expect I have been surprised at the quality and value of this item. The quality of the product and sizing is excellent and as a result I replaced both levers. Easy to replace.
The service from WIGGLE was great with text messages at each stage and it arrived within days as stated. I would definitely use them again.

Good value for money
Bought to replace old levers after a bump. Good value for money, ok so they are not the highest quality but I think they are good value for money. Fit me perfect although they are listed as Junior, ok for women with small - medium sized hands.

Great for kids
used this to replace my son's rubbish plastic levers on his 14" ridgeback. you can adjust the short reach so little hands can reach. They're light and very easy to fit!

My kids drop their bikes and so the pedals and levers see some pretty nasty action. I bought this as a replacement for one that broken and it was easy to fit and is handling the abuse well so far!

TS325A Junior MTB V-Brake Levers
very good product and cheap and came very quickly!

Does what it says on the tin
These are perfect for my 9yr old. Certainly not suitable for adult hands are they seem to be about 3/4 size. We have other Tektro products and these are of a consistant build quality and we partly the reason that I bought them. The other reason was the price
I find Wiggle very easy to use and they seem to be my 'go to' supplier at the moment and so long as their prices stay keen I don't see any reason to to change.

Much better than OEM for kids bikes
These came fitted as standard on my 8 year old's 24" Felt hard tail (great deal from Wiggle!). The brakes on my smaller boys' bikes needed replacing and at this price, these were a no-brainer..
They are a bit bigger than the OEM brakes on 12" wheel bikes but fit well, with adjustment of the cables/outers. The only downside of the new levers is that they highlight the inadequacy of the OEM V-brakes!
Maybe a little too big for the smallest children but my 4 year old can reach these easily and there is an adjuster screw to bring the levers closer.

Good product and very good price, but not attractive.

Great for small hands
I used these to replace the standard brakes on my daughters bike as she could not reach them and therefore could not brake at all. Subsequently she lacked confidence on the bike. These brakes are easier to pull, more robust in construction and designed specifically for smaller hands so are an amazing upgrade for the bike. My daughter can now reach the brakes and is growing in confidence in their use.

excellent short reach
Got these for my boy's bike as the kids leavers already fitted were very poor.
These sit the leavers half an inch closer than the ones I took off before any further adjustment is made.
My boy can now easily reach his brakes and it's given him great confidence knowing he can stop quickly.
One piece of advice though; clean off some/all of the thread lock before adjusting the reach adjusters. The thread lock is much stronger than the metal the adjusters are made of and I've got one rounded off now.

this product is very easy to fit
this product is easy to fit on to my handle bars the best yet

Bought to replace a snapped plastic one on my lads Saracen. Great quality very robust metal - relatively easy to fit but being metal had to cut off the grips and replace at same time.
All in all - a top bit of kit!
