Keep reading for our guide on how to use it most effectively and where you can get your hands on one…
What’s a Dynaplug Racer?
An extremely lightweight puncture repair tool made from stainless steel suitable for all tubeless tyres.
How to use it…
- Find the puncture and remove what has caused the puncture if you can (nail, stone etc)
- Ensure you’re using the correct end of the plug and have the tip installed
- Line up the Dynaplug with the puncture and push it into the tyre wall (you shouldn’t need too much pressure for this, depending on the compound of the tyre)
- Pull the Dynaplug back out (which will leave the plug in the hole)
- Clip off any excess rubber
It’s as simple as that, and will save you from being stranded on a trail!
Benefits of the Dynaplug
We know there are a lot of repair kits on the market so why should you choose Dynaplug over any other? Here’s why…
Repair without removal – the handy tool allows you to fix the puncture without taking the wheel off, saving you time and general faff!
Long-lasting – the Dynaplug isn’t a one-time tool, it comes with a number of puncture repair tips, and then once you’ve run out, they are easily replenished so you can continue to use the tool year after year.
Very little force is required – the tip on the Dynaplug which inserts into the tyre is the perfect shape and size for easy penetration.
No reaming of the hole – because of the low insertion force, it is not necessary to enlarge a puncture hole by reaming. This eliminates the need for a second tool and prevents further damage to the tyre.
No glue is needed – Dynaplug retains its sealing ability indefinitely both during storage and in the tyre.
Versatile – the tool includes both the road and mountain bike fixtures, so regardless of your bike choice on that day, you’re covered.
Ultra-light and compact – it could literally fit in your back pocket!
