Over the last couple of years We’ve been designing, testing and refining our own, unique, super fast, easy and steezy Peaty’s Holeshot tubeless puncture plugger kit.
What is a plugger and why do you need one?
Our Tubeless Tyre Sealant can fix most tubeless punctures straight away, but for the biggest holes or ‘snakebite’ punctures you need to physically fill the hole with a sticky rubber plug.
What’s a snakebite you ask?
Also sometimes called a pinch flat puncture, the snake bite is where the soft tyre is pinched between the edge of the hard rim and a much harder rock. If you’re lucky enough to not crack your rim, you’re very likely to end up with two holes in your tyre - one on top of the tyre and one right next to the tyre bead. Holes down by the tyre bead are the nemesis of tyre sealant since the centrifugal forces created by a spinning wheel fling sealant outwards, to the top of the tyre, leaving no sealant down by the bead. To make things even worse, cornering flexes the tyre bead, causing the hole to open up again, so, even if sealant does temporarily fix it, it's likely to be opened back up again with cornering forces. Without a tyre plug then, a tyre with a snakebite would typically end up with an innertube in it - or worse - going in the bin!
