Review – Pro Bike Tool Tubeless Bike Tyre Repair Kit

Pro Bike Tool Tubeless Bike Tyre Repair Kit | Tim Wiggins
Plugging or repairing a large hole or cut in a tubeless bicycle tyre can be a necessity when the opening is too large for the tubeless tyre sealant to clog. The Pro Bike Tool Tubeless Tyre Repair Kit is a neat tubeless tyre plug system, housed in a compact metal canister.

I once wrote a feature on 'How To Make Your Own Tubeless Plug System' – that system worked well, but it was rather flimsy and eventually broke after repeat use. The homemade creation was based on the tried-and-tested design of most tubeless tyre repair plugs though, and this Pro Bike Tool one is a great example.

The Pro Bike Tool Tubeless Tyre Repair Kit is a simple system: you insert a sticky plugging strip into the open needle end, and then push the needle into the hole or cut in the tyre. As you pull the needle out, the plug strip remains in the hole. Then, you just spin the wheel and the sealant clots around the plug.

The Pro Bike Tool system is housed within a neat metal canister, which avoids the needle spearing anything in your saddlebag or rucksack, and keeps the sticky strips away from dust and grease.

You get two thicknesses of strips in the kit, with ten strips in total. I recommend keeping one plugging strip in the needle, so it is ready to use; it is a bit of a fiddle to fit the larger ones and you can guarantee you will have frozen or muddy hands when you try and do it out on the trail.

In use, the Pro Bike Tool Tubeless Repair Kit works just as intended, and does a great job of plugging holes that are too large for the tubeless sealant to clog.

Another great little piece of kit from Pro Bike Tool.
