The Process
The key to repairing a tubeless plug with the Dynaplug is finding the hole and inserting the plug before the tire is fully deflated.

The plug is inserted by pushing the brass tip plug with the CNC case.

As the Micro Pro holder is pulled out, it leaves the brass tip and the plug securely in the tire.

At this point, the repair can be considered done as the plug will just trim itself after a few miles of riding. But the detail-oriented folks will want to trim off the excess plug.

One of the Micro Pro accessories is a sharp blade for cutting off the excess plug.

The Dynaplug when installed on the tire can be left by itself or cut for a clean install.

The Dynaplug system is a reliable one indeed. It is compact and works better than other repair kits on the market. It even works without sealant which is a great relief since there’s no easy way to check sealant level in a tire short of opening it up and breaking the tubeless seal.

It may prove reliable enough for some that they may even choose not to carry a spare inner tube on some rides. And that is a great option for some specially with the weight of Plus tubes and Fat bike tubes.

This Carbon Ultralight version has less accessories but is more affordable at $25.

We appreciate having a very high end Micro Pro option available with all the bells and whistles for $55. But we think the $25 Carbon Ultralight is a great option for most folks.

    Won’t the brass tip of the plug damage the rimbed in case of a second flat?

    • Francis Cebedo says:

      It’s a remote possibility if the rim is carbon. But one would have to ride the flat tire for a long time. Also, the recessed part of the rim is out of the way, The sidewall is the only exposed part but that is such a small surface area.

      For very cautious buyers, they also sell a ‘bullet’ style brass tip which is rounded instead of sharp. It’s a little harder to insert to plug the flat.

    This is a product that is overdue. I have plugged many punctures in my car tires with great success, this is just a downsized version of the same. I’ll pick one up the first time I see one in my LBS.

    This looks cool, but WAY to expensive for what it is. I use the $6 Genuine Innovations UST Tubeless Plug Patch Kit and it works great. Same concept with out all the fance metal works….and lighter.

  • Skinewmexico says:

    I’ll just pick the same thing up at Walmart for 1/4 of the price. Appeals to those who base functionality on price though.

  • matt says:

    Will it work with the higher pressures of Road Tubeless?

  • Dan says:

    at x10 the cost of the competition (Genuine Innovations), this product is not worth it. The $6 solution works great!
