What is Wheelgoo?

Introduction

Bicycle punctures and flat tyres are a pain. How many times have you been out cycling and felt your bike buckling as the air slowly escapes from the tyre? Or perhaps you’ve been planning a family cycling day, only to find you have to postpone because one of your bikes has a puncture.

As anyone who’s ever had a puncture knows, the traditional puncture repair kit can be fiddly, messy and time consuming.

Our innovative Wheelgoo sealant makes these common problems a thing of the past. As well as quickly and efficiently fixing punctures on the go, it can help to prevent them happening in the first place.

Gone are the days of being stranded in the middle of nowhere trying to repair a puncture, or cycling days out with the family being ruined by a flat tyre.

Wheelgoo was created by cyclists for cyclists, so we understand exactly what you need from a puncture repair and prevention solution.

The science bit...

We developed Wheelgoo based on scientific research and experimentation.

Here’s how it works…

When a puncture occurs, the sealant fires ultra-microfibres into the hole. These microfibres are incredibly small – 25 times finer than a human hair. The nano-spheres in the sealant bond these fibres together, forming rope-like seal plugs that extend beyond the puncture to create a robust and airtight seal.

What are the benefits of Wheelgoo compared to conventional methods?

Unlike conventional methods, Wheelgoo is clean and safe to use – it can even prevent punctures from occurring in the first place.

Wheelgoo contains no latex, glue or chopped rubber, unlike traditional puncture repair kits, other foams or sealants. While some foams and sealants can dry and ball up inside the tyre making it impossible to use, Wheelgoo sealant lasts the entire life of the tyre. What’s more, using Wheelgoo in a new tyre as a puncture prevention method can actually increase the lifespan of the tyre.

Our innovative Gootube™ makes puncture repair simple and mess-free. Simply squirt the sealant into your tyres (and nowhere else!) using the Goopump™.

Where can I use Wheelgoo?

As well as being the ideal product for repairing and preventing bike punctures, Wheelgoo is also perfect for pushchairs and buggies, Wheelgoo, ride-on mowers and wheelbarrows.

It can be used on all types of bike tyres, from road bikes and mountain bikes to commuter fold away bikes. The bigger the tyre, the more Wheelgoo you use.

The only tyre you can’t use Wheelgoo on is a tubeless tyre. These require a latex glue type sealant, which seals the tyre bead to the rim. Our design boffins are in the process of developing a new version of Wheelgoo for tubeless tires.
