This really is great, it's lighter than a pair of regular tire irons while doubling as an axle removal wrench and the spoon end makes for an easier tire install. for removal the 12\13mm version has a smaller end with a lip to catch the bead.
A single unit in your size plus the 12\13mm replace the following.
27mm (or whatever you use) socket or wrench
half inch ratchet to drive the above socket
12mm box end wrench
13mm box end wrench
Don't forget to add a bead buddy (or two) to your shopping cart.
If I can make a simple suggestion. Put 2 holes towards the tire lever end so that you can connect two of these together for more leverage for stubborn axles. Mine have already been modified and it makes a world of difference.
