patchnride™ showcases its innovative solution to quickly, easily and permanently repair all flat bicycle tires at the Tour of Utah. Featuring patent-pending technology, patchnride works by inserting a patch and adhesive into the tire, repairing it from within. Providing a quick repair for numerous tire types, patchnride is available for tubular, clincher, mountain bike, cruiser, fat and running stroller tires, and will soon be able to repair tubeless tires as well. patchnride also reduces the carbon footprint by helping to eliminate the more than 20 million inner tubes that are tossed into U.S. landfills each year.
patchnride transforms the tedious process of changing a flat into a 60-second blip in your ride. The breakthrough technology in patchnride eliminates the need to remove the wheel, and allows cyclists to patch the same tire as many times as needed. Once patched, the tire is ready for any riding conditions or terrain.
Perfect for road cyclists, triathletes, long-distance cyclists, mountain bikers and daily cruisers, patchnride offers a simple five-step process for repairing a flat. First, wipe patchnride’s leak detector along the tire, causing bubbles to form at the site of the leak. Then, pinch the tire to insert patchnride into the puncture. Pull the slider back to load the patch, hit the start button to release the adhesive and then push the slider forward to insert the patch into the tire. Remove patchnride and press down on the repair to set the adhesive. A thin rubber piece will remain, signaling the repair is complete. Simply add air and be on your way.
“The technology behind patchnride eliminates traditional repair methods such as messy sealers, greasy bike chains and wheel removal,” says Alexander Deiser, Co-Founder of patchnride. “Virtually effortless to use, patchnride repairs a punctured tire while still on the wheel without any necessary skills, additional tools or preparation. The great thing about patchnride is that its simplicity makes it perfect for a serious cyclist or triathlete as well as cruising types or parents. It’s a product that’s never existed before, and we’re ecstatic to bring it to the market.”
The uniqueness of patchnride is based on a reusable system of cartridges called patch pods™. Patch pods are replaceable and interchangeable cartridges that hold the patch for a tire. After changing a flat, a user simply needs to remove the used patch pod and insert a new one. Thus, the cost to repair is flat is only that of a patch pod refill. Patch pods are for one-time use and available in two variations: the road patch pod for clincher, tubular and triathlon bikes; and the mountain patch pod for mountain bikes, cruisers and running strollers. Each patchnride purchase includes one patch pod™.
For a limited time, patchnride is hosting an online pre-sale and offering a 50% discount package that includes one patchnride tool, two patch pods and two leak detectors. Valued at $50, the package is currently available for $25 plus shipping and will be available in fall 2014. Visit http://www.patchnride.com to purchase the product and learn more.
