Description of VeloPlugs Rim Plugs (64 Pcs.)

VeloPlugs are the best idea since the introduction of Clincher rim, patented worldwide. An ordinary rim tape for a 700C wheel weighs about 20 grams and 32 VeloPlugs weigh only 5 grams. For less than 32 spokes, the weight saving is even greater.

VeloPlugs simplify the assembly of tube and tire, and can be reused many times. And they can theoretically withstand up to 24bar (please do not try: rims and tires fail well below this figure).

The VeloPlugs is available in two sizes, suitable for two different diameter of the rim holes. The red VeloPlugs fit into 8 mm rim holes. The yellow VeloPlugs fit into many system wheels with spoke holes 8,5 to 9,2mm, the gluing is no longer required.

The VeloPlugs are delivered in a package with 64 pieces - so each wheelset can be fitted.

Delivery without rim.
Included in delivery: 64 VeloPlugs

Excellent
Note: this product is NOT for tubeless (they are not airtight!), it's for running with tubes. I was a bit worried that the plugs would have to sharp edges for my delicate latex tubes, but I've run them over one season now without issues. For weight weenies a few grams are saved, and for us that never seem to get rim tape properly aligned, these plugs are easier to install.

Mangelhaft
Vorteile:
- Gewichtsersparnis

Nachteile:
- unverhältnismäßig teuer.
- aufwendige Montage, da die Kappe keine Verriegelung hat (einkleben ist notwendig).
- damit verbundene zeitaufwändige Montagezeit.
- hohes Risiko, dass bei der Montage eine Kappe unbemerkt herausfällt.
- eine sichere Montage im Feld ist damit nahezu unmöglich.
- bei reduziertem Luftdruck und hoher Reifenaktivität kann auch während der Fahrt eine Kappe aus dem Loch fallen.

Fazit:
Nach eigenem Test und zwei kaputten Schläuchen durch diese Verschlussmethode, komme ich zu dem Ergebnis:
Finger weg, da unkalkulierbares Verhalten, das schnell lebensgefährlich werden kann. Ein gutes Felgenband ist hier immer vorzuziehen, auch wenn die Gewichtsersparnis lockt.

Terrible
They sounded like the perfect solution, but when I opened the packet I had my doubts. I installed them and they seemed like a tight fit. Upon fitting the tyre and filling with sealant, they leaked like a sieve. All I succeeded in doing was to fill the inside of the rim with sealant. This is the worst tubeless product I've ever used! I will be going back to tape.

Gut
ich finde die Veloplugs eine richtig gute Idee. Bei meinen Laufrädern für mein Rennrad habe ich die roten genommen. Weil verschiedene Laufräder verschieden große Speichenlöcher haben, muss man die abstehenden 6 Lamellen so weit abschneiden, dass die Veloplugs gerade passen. Aber nicht übertreiben, weil sie sonst herausfallen. Einmal installiert laufen sie problemlos seit schon über einem Jahr.
