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.
