Is CLUG compatible with Clincher tyres?Updated 2 years ago

CLUG was born before the advent of high end, wide carbon rims and straight-walled tyres. Usually CLUG pinches the narrow part of the tyre by the rim and the tyre fills the inner part of the CLUG, but with clinchers the tyre wall tends to be straight, not rounded. It still grips because clincher tyres are almost always at the upper end of the roadie parameters. To be extra safe, it is best to use CLUG PRO rather than CLUG if you have Clincher tyres. CLUG PRO has a FIDLOCK cord and winch attached and so there will be no risk of it falling out in the case of a slow puncture.
