There have been a bunch of new tubeless repair plug kits released recently. But Dynaplug has to be one of, if not the, original micro tubeless repair kits. Founded in 1991, Dynaplug has been offering permanent repairs on motorcycle, car, truck, SUV, ATV, scooter, trailer, tractor, and most recently, bicycle tires for years. Designed and manufactured in the U.S., Dynaplug kits have impressive form factor and they continue to improve on their designs with options like the new Dynaplug Air.
While it’s been out for a bit now, we caught up with Dynaplug at Interbike to check out all of their tools in person. The Dynaplug Air is a genius little device that allows you to fill your tire through the hole, and then remove the tool while simultaneously plugging the leak.
This is possible thanks to the air hole in the needle applicator underneath their metal-tipped tire plugs. Push the tool deep into the tire so the air hole is inside, crack the CO2 to inflate the tire, and then pull out the tool – the metal tip catches on the tire causing the plug to stay in place.
The Dynaplug Air kit also comes with an inflation hose in case you need to use the CO2 without needing the plug. And a screw cap keeps the applicator safe and ready to go on the CO2 so you don’t lose precious time. The Dynaplug Air kit sells for $74.99 with the tool, four plugs, two 16g CO2 cartridges, and the air hose with presta adapter. You can add the Megaplug adapter and four Megaplugs for $19.99. There’s even a road bike kit with shorter plugs making this perfect for roadies as well.
The Racer is a dual sided repair kit that offers the standard plug on one side and the Megaplug on the other side, both ready to go at a moment’s notice. Sold for $43.99, the kit includes the tool, three regular plugs, two Megaplugs, and two insertion tubes. One thing to note, all Dynaplug tools come in multiple colors and include a lifetime warranty.
Called the Dynaplug Carbon Ultralite, this tool is also their least expensive at $24.99. The difference is that it takes a little longer to use since you have to assemble the tool each time you want to use it. The four repair plugs, insertion tube, and pipe cleaner all fit inside the handle.
The new Megapill is a slightly larger version of the original that has been enlarged to fit the new Megaplug. It also has increased storage for standard plugs as well, carrying up to five standard plugs and two Megaplugs. It also includes their new Micro Knife which allows you to trim the plugs once installed for a flush fit. Like most Dynaplugs, it’s made from 6061 aluminum with hardened 304 stainless tubes and sells for $74.99.
Finally, the Survivor was originally just a waterproof storage capsule that’s green, because, you know. But it can also be purchased as a Megaplug conversion kit for your current Micro Pro/Pill. The Survivor is $19.99, while the conversion kit includes the capsule, one Megaplug insertion tube and one Megaplug for $24.99.
