It’s officially summer and what better way to celebrate than to take evening bike rides to get a bit of fresh air and some fun exercise! If this is on your agenda for the next couple of months, then you won’t want to leave home without the new Patchnride that easily and safely repairs a bike flat while you’re out and about. The handy device can fix both tubular and clincher flats on a bike in less than 60 seconds and you don’t have to be a bike expert to do so!


So what makes Patchnride easier than a regular flat repair you might be thinking? Well, for starters, you don’t have to remove the wheel and tire to patch up a flat because no one wants to get dirty messing with your bike’s derailleur. Second, it’s easy and convenient since all you do is drop it in your bag or pocket and go. All you do is find the puncture on the tire, remove any dirt and insert the tool into the hole and then push the “go” button and release the Air Seal Patch. Then remove it and press down with your thumb on the patch and you’l sees a small piece of rubber sticking out and that’s your signal that you’re ready to ride again.


It’s ready for riding and racing and will patch up holes up to 3mm. And you can use Patchnride as many times as you’d like, just as long as the puncture in your bike’s tires doesn’t occur on the same or next to an existing repair. When you pre-order a Patchnride for $30, you also get a three-year warranty on the tool.
