Dynaplug’s latest machined aluminum Micro Racer is 25% smaller than their original mini Racer “ultralightest” tire repair tool. Yet it still packs-in 2 pre-load plugs to fix a tubeless tire puncture fast on the side of the road. And it sells for effectively the same price as the plastic original, at essentially the same light weight.

If you’re looking to fit a tubeless repair solution into a jersey pocket, small saddlebag, or pack without tacking up extra space, this looks like the best Dynaplug solution yet!

First, they launched the ultralight $48 Racer – a 95mm-long x 14g fiber-reinforced nylon tube with 2 pre-loaded Dynaplugs, one on either end. Then, came the upgraded $58 Racer Pro – a 108mm-long x26 aluminum upgrade that expanded your tire fixing capabilities, with 4 pre-loaded Dynaplugs, double-ended Twin Tube plugs on either end. But how often do you need to fix 4 holes at once?

Dynaplug took the Pro back to the drawing board and realized that thanks to the Twin Tube solution, they could give you the capabilities of the OG Racer in a much smaller package. All they had to do was chop off one end.

The result?

What’s new?

The new $50 aluminum Dynaplug Micro Racer is only 72.6mm long, 12.4mm in diameter, and weighs just 15g. Inside Dynaplug puts one hardened 304 stainless steel Twin Tube, with 2 pre-loaded soft nose tip plugs at-the-ready. It threads into the small one-ended handle. And a snap-fit cap slide on from the other end.

The handle & cap are machined from 6061 aluminum, and polished to a nice shine. The whole thing is made in the USA, in Chico, CA. Get it now directly from Dynaplug or their retailers. More plugs are available separately.

Dynaplug also says that gravel & mountain bikers could in theory separately buy a 2-size Standard/Megaplug Twin Tube, to convert the new Micro Racer to have a combo setup with a small & large plug pre-loaded to fit any puncture you might encounter. We haven’t seen the Twin Tubes available separately yet. So fingers crossed on that front.

I see these types of tire plug tools but can’t figure where to install the plug strip? All of my tire plugs have an open hook end and have a pointed end ( similar to what’s shown on these) to dislodge debris?

They’re attached to the pointed tip. You just can’t see it because it’s inside the metal tube. When you drive the point through the rubber, the strip is left sticking out of the tire.

It looks to the like the metal tip remains inside the tire. I don’t care for that.

Get past that: they’re exceptionally easy to use and work great.

Dynaplugs work so well. I’m more of an ex-racer these days, so I’ll stick with my trusty Racer Pro, for the peace of mind that having the larger plug provides — though I’ve never needed it.
