GÜP is a new name on the flat scene but with the introduction of KWIKI we expect riders will know them very soon. GÜP was founded with a single purpose: to get riders back in the saddle faster. With the debut of the KWIKI; The all-in-one Quick-Fix Tire Sealant and Inflator, GÜP shows they’re committed to the mission.
The compact 125-milliliter canister contains an eco-friendly foaming latex sealant capable of sealing up to a 4-millimeter tire puncture (up to 2 millimeters in tubes) in seconds, said to seal sidewall tears as well. Weighing only 122 grams GÜP KWIKI features a silicon “speed adapter” that eliminates the need to remove valve cores for maximum inflation, and is compatible with both schrader and presta valves.
“No matter how far cycling technology has come, a flat can still make or break a ride or race,” says Tomas Petricko, founder. “Even if you have CO2, not everyone is running tubeless, and even if you are, sealant can dry up and become less effective over time.
Capable of inflating even high-volume tires up to 29 x 2.4 in seconds, the GÜP KWIKI works with tubeless, tubed and even tubular tires, making it perfect for any discipline where seconds count, including mountain, road, cyclocross, even triathlon.
Is the GÜP KWIKI better than Vittoria Pit-Stop or any of the other quick fixes out there, will it work on latex or butyl tubes? We’ll have to wait and see but GÜP is very convincing in the speed and security of which these punctures are said to seal.
GÜP KWIKI retails for $14.99 USD each, and is available now in singles or team six-packs at GUPIndustries.com and bike shops internationally.
