Why wrap your complete rim with a roll of heavy cloth tape when for less than half the weight you can use the Veloplug?
Tire mounting is easier with the Veloplug. Rim strips take up a lot of space making tires more difficult to mount. With the sleek and slippery Veloplug, a difficult to mount tire becomes easy.
Veloplugs will not rot, slip around or retain water when moisture enters the rim.
Save ~15 grams over cloth tape on a 32 spoke 700c wheel
Incredible blowout strength - takes well over 400psi
Spoke replacement is simplified as there is no need to remove a sticky strip. Just pop out the Veloplug over the offending spoke and pop it back in when repairs are complete. They can be used over and over.
Not for use with tubeless application.
