Tubeless MTB tyre systems have revolutionised mountain biking, and the days of multiple punctures in a single ride are history. However there are still some nasties on the trails (flint, glass & metal) that will puncture a tyre so badly that even the best tubeless sealant alone can't seal the hole.
In these situations rather than fitting a tube (which then gets punctured multiple times on the countless thorns poking inside the tyre) and hoping for the best, you now have an option that will get you rolling again without loosing the tubeless benefit.
The Sahmurai Sword tubeless tyre plug kit provides a solution that is built into a pair of bar plugs. These sit inside the bars to provide a much safer way to carry the kit. One plug hosts the reamer, which is used to open up the puncture, the other holds the plug fork to push the gummy worm plug through the hole.
The Sahmurai Sword is the first cycle-specific option and is the brainchild of three-time Cape Epic winner and Team Bulls rider Stefan ‘Sahmurai’ Sahm. Tyre plugs were first used in car tyres repairs, marathon racers have been known to carry small automotive kits with them, aften taped to their bikes, not the safest way to carry such sharp objects!
The Sahmurai Sword bar plug sits quite flush with the end of the bar, but there is enough of a roughened surface that you can unthread it from the bar by hand. The plugs will work with any handlebar with an inside diameter of 17mm and up, but they will not fit bars with reinforced rings for bar ends.
The weight of the whole kit is just 40 grams so it won’t slow you down!
