PRESS RELEASE: Lyne Components

Tubeless tyre technology is arguably one of the most significant improvements to mountain biking over the past years. Although this technology is a massive improvement there is a good chance you have had a ride ruined by a tubeless tyre failure and not having the right tools on hand to fix it. This is why we developed the Shred Zeppelin tubeless repair tool.

Tubeless repair solutions in the past have been somewhat unrefined and required many separate parts to create a complete kit. Our goal was to design an all-in-one solution that would integrate all the required tools and could also be attached to the bike. The Shred Zeppelin has the same silhouette as a CO2 canister and is compatible with CO2 brackets and includes a tubeless plug applicator, tubeless plug storage, CO2 regulator and a valve core remover.



Tubeless Plug Applicator and Storage

If you unscrew the threaded end of the tool and thread it into the CO2 regulator side the Shred Zeppelin becomes a Tubeless Plug applicator. The tubeless plugs are stored within the body of the tool. The shortened applicator prong design prevents the plug being inserted too far in to the tyre. Simply fold over the tubeless plug after inserting it in to the prong, plug the tyre and pull out the tool, the plug is short enough not to require trimming.

CO2 Regulator

Unscrew the back end of the tool and the Shred Zeppelin becomes an in-line CO2 regulator. Screw in a CO2 cartridge fully to puncture the seal then push over the opened valve. Tightening or loosening the cartridge will regulate the CO2 flow.

Valve Core Tool

Inside the threaded end of the tool is a valve core removal slot. Simply place the tool over the valve core and turn it to tighten or remove the valve core. It is recommended that the valve core be removed if a tubeless tyre needs to be re-seated on the rim.

 Figured for sure it was a pun of the popular 'Red Zeppelin' CO2 inflator, but I see they're made by diff manufacturers. Aren't there like rules against that?

 @curendero: We are doing OK under the circumstances I guess. Our lockdown is quite strict and many of the regulations are illogical.
Prohibition in place - no movement or sales of alcohol & cigarettes.
All restaurants, take-outs and even pie counters & bakeries in supermarkets closed.
Some army deployed to assist police and now it looks like full deployment.
Hopefully we see a phased unlock in a more scientific way in about 2 weeks.

 I wonder if the footprint is exactly the same as a 16g co2 cartridge. In other words, can i screw it into the bottom of a One Up EDC and stash in headtube? I have been looking for a co2 regulator that fits there.
  • 1 0
 Yes it is the same as a CO2 cartridge
  • 2 0
 Probably not, its the same size as a 20/25g cartridge.
Easy enough to just pop it into a pocket though

 This looks easy enough to operate even when I'm Dazed and Confused. But for real, is anyone buying a tool that isn't Stan's DART this year?
  • 3 0
 Buying just for the name alone

 I've been using similar from Dynaplug for around 3 years, plugs the hole and inflates at the same time, seldom used but when I had to it was a blessing to have.
  • 1 0
 Do people actually use these? Do they fix punctures in the sidewall - that seems to be the only place where sealant wont fix the hole...
  • 1 0
 @MikeyMT tubeless punctures usually affect the tread and bead. Much harder to get a bead cut sealed, but a heck of a lot easier than putting a tube in. I like to tie a knot in the plug before inserting for larger cuts. For a sidewall slash boot it up with whatever ya got & run a tube.

 Tire plugs work great. They work on punctures too big for sealant to seal in their own. I personally have had the best experiences with larger diameter plug strips (more effort to install, but a better seal). I haven't carried tubes on a ride for over two years now. Plugs will work 95% of the time, but will not work on giant gashes in tires.

 This is a cool little kit and not a bad price. But there is already a product call bacon strips, that is like 12 bucks and works like a charm. Bacon.

 After using the Stan's Dart tool vs the classic plugs, there is no comparison. This is cool but the Stan's Dart is King for now

 Stupid question:
Why?
Doesn´t seem too different to me honestly, but if it really is better i´ll gladly buy a DART instead of something else.
Can you elaborate a little on what makes the dart so superior? Thx!
  • 1 0
 @Loki87: science. the Dart is a flappy absorbent thing with a plastic tip to hold it in. Seems like an improvement to the standard plug.
  • 1 0
 @Chonky13:
Well, so it would seem. I´ve never tried any of those systems yet and it seemed to me they all work for the most part so i´m just curious in what area exactly the usual soft plugs are lacking where the dart would make for a significant improvement. Like, have you guys had soft plugs fly out after some time where the plug kept going? Or is the dart plug able to seal bigger holes than the usual soft plugs?
Just curious, because the replacement dart-plugs are freakin expensive, but if they really can do what other products can´t, it might well be worth it.
I´ve just seen too many products, that seemed logical on paper, not work out any better than the low tech alternative, so i´m a little hesitant to put in the extra money without knowing what benefits i can expect :-)
And since people seem to rave about the dart, i´d like to know what exactly their perceived benefits are.
  • 2 0
 @Loki87: it seals punctures better and faster. Bigger punctures too. I've you've ever ran into the scenario where 2 or 3 plugs are needed to seal, then this dart tool with take care of it with one go.

 I tried the Blackburn one and was pretty underwhelmed. Was really hard to get the plugs inserted properly, then stay in while I got the tool out. A couple of times they subsequently blew out leaving me stuck again. Switched to inserts for protection and a tube for holes that won't seal. The CaffeLatex sealant seems to work better than Stan's though and I haven't needed to use the tube since fitting the inserts.
