Velocity Veloplugs 8mm Red (72)
A brilliant invention! Simple, reliable and useful. These are lighter than a rim tape, will withstand any pressure you'll require of them, and make tyre fitting easier by reducing the effective diameter of the inside of the rim.
Weight is for a set of 72 (for 2 wheels). 72 supplied per pack. Spoke replacement is easier as no sticky rim tape needs to be removed - only the relevant Veloplug. They can be used over and over again. Fits 8mm holes - meaning most of the Velocity range of rims (8mm holes), and many others also.
- Incredible blowout strength - takes well over 400psi. Tyres start to fail long before the Veloplug.
- Tyre mounting is easier with the Veloplug. Rim strips take up a lot of space making tyres more difficult to mount. With the sleek and slippery Veloplug, a difficult to mount tyre becomes easy.
- Spoke replacement is simplified as there is no need to remove a sticky strip. Just opo out the Veloplug over the offending spoke and pop it back in when repairs are complete. They can be used over and over.
- Veloplugs will not rot, slip around or retain water when water enters the rim.
- Save about 15 grams on a 32 spoke 700c wheel.
- Red 8mm suits the majority of the Velocity rim range.
- Yellow 9mm suits Velocity eyeleted rims and some other popular brands.
