    Best Bang for the Buck

      There are a lot of nifty tire patch kits out there. I did a lot of research and finally realized I rarely need to use a patch kit. I sprung for this $7 kit and it works as expected. Don't overthink or overpay, get this instead.

      Must have with tubless!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Purchased as "just in case" and to get free shipping. Week later my buddy got flat, not one, but two spots (one next to rim), and was all stress out that he may not be able to get the tire off the rims to put tube (he had to use vice prior at home). 10 min later using this tool and the strips, we got him all patch up ready to go. We were on super rocky trail (Deer Creen, CO), so we both worried how much it will hold, so I just in case I was riding in the back watching his rear tire. Amazingly, he made it just fine, with no issues or air loss! Needless to say, now he has one of those kits as well :-).

      I can think of at least dozen cases in past, where that tool would have remove the need of the on the trail tube installation painful and messy process.

      Totally recommended!

      Always be prepared

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Got these for the just in case factor.

      A must have for tubeless rider

        Looks great but still not used.

        Cheap Way out

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        This is a nice little trick to have in your pocket when you blow a tire a long way from home. Save your butt!

        Light weight, plugs holes (I hope)

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        This is another one of those accessories I have which I hope I don't actually have to use. These plugs are designed after car tire plugs. Use them when you have a puncture greater than the tire sealant will close, approximately 2-3mm.

        Must Have

          Super easy trail fix if a puncture occurs. A small price to pay for some extra insurance,

          Just Plug It

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          If you run tubeless, you need this tool! This style tool was brought over from the auto world and it works wonders! For quick on trail punctures, this lil gem is what you need! Quickly jam a bacon strip or two into the hole and you are plugged. Then just inflate and you are off to the races! It is best to keep this close by and not buried in your pack so you can plug the moment a puncture happens Ana preserve some of the air in your tire.

          A hole new world

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I’ve used the larger older-brother version on car tires before so I quickly grabbed some of these when I saw them. Glad I did. Put a hole in a new tire that hissed louder and spit more sealant than any other hole I’d had.
          The plugs worked great and got me going within a few minutes.
          1. Locate the hole and orient it closest to the ground. Sealant will come out and will help lubricate the hole so your plugs can be inserted easier.
          2. Put a plug on the insertion tool and center it so the ends are at the same height along the shaft when bent.
          3. Insert the plug half way.
          4. Hold the inserted plugs ends against the tire when withdrawing the insertion tool.
          5. Return the plugged hole to the low spot and allow sealant to seal the small spaces around the plug and hole.
          6. Use two plugs at the same time if the hole is large.
          Short term fix but may not want to go on a long distance backcountry ride on a plugged tire.

          Vital Trail Gear

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Plug tips:
          1. Preload a doubled-up plug into the tool before riding. It is one less thing to do while your tire is hissing and spraying sealant.
          2, if your tire is muddy and you can't see exactly where the puncture is, drip some water (or spit in a pinch) in the area where you can hear air escaping. The bubbles will show you where to put the plug.
          3. If 1 plug does not seal the cut, throw another one in!
          4. When you get home, carefully cut off plug material that is sticking out to reduce the risk of the plug getting pulled out on a future ride.

          Safety First

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          This simple tire repair kit is a life saver. Tubeless tires and sealant have tons of advantages, carrying tire plus will save you the pain of installing a tube after a small cut or puncture.

          These have saved me a number of times and I always ride with them.

          Can't go out without them

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          Saved me on a long ride after having two flat tires.
          I have a tubeless road bike, and usually carry just one tube in case of emergency.

          Great tool

            I've been with a friend when he has to use this tool and it worked great. I, on the other hand, havent had to use it yet.

            I hope I never have to use them

            • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

            I haven't had to use these personally, but a riding buddy of mine put a couple holes in the sidewall of his Nobby Nics that his sealant couldn't hold and it spurred this purchase. They weigh nothing and can save your ride from turning into a long walk.

            Tubeless Best Friend

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            If you ride tubeless these are a must have for you pack. They are advertised as a temporary fix to patch up a hole in your tire but I and friends have ridden whole seasons with multiples of these patches in your tire. They won't fix a sidewall tear but for annoying little trail punctures these guys are a life saver. Do yourself a favor and pick up some CO2 as well and make tubeless flats an easy trail side fix.

            MTB Game Changer

            • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

            One time my boyfriend got a flat on the trail, and someone gave him one of these plugs. He was obsessed, so I bought them as a gift. These plugs are killer.

            Great set up

              While I have not yet had to use these plugs, I am confident that they will do the job quite well. I was a bit worried that the insertion tool would be too sharp but I have ridden with the tool and plugs in my pocket several times and not even noticed it was there. The plugs look to be a bit thicker than other plugs I have seen so I am hoping that I will be able to plug even larger holes without doubling up.

              Must Have!

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              These have gotten me out of the woods time and time again!

              A key component in my pack

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              These plugs work so good. I rode on a tire that had over 5 of these in it for a whole weekend in Moab and had no issues. These are crucial for racing as well. It takes me less than a minute to get back rolling after putting the plug in the tire and using a CO2 to refill the tire with air.
