SESSION SAFE PLUG TUBELESS REPAIR KIT REVIEW
Tubeless tire plugs are essential to keep rides rolling, but it’s best to act fast, and that’s where Session’s Safe bar-end plugs come in. Inside these bar-end plugs are bacon-strip-style tire-plug installers. One is a larger 3.5mm size, while the other is smaller at 1.5mm. The kit comes with two sets of five strips, each of both sizes.
Field test results:
We used these bar-end plugs on a variety of bars with slightly different results. The plug material is a softer plastic than most bar-end plugs making them difficult to remove if the fit is too tight. They seemed to fit most aluminum bars perfectly but are a bit too snug on some thicker walled carbon bars. We simply trimmed the ribs down a few millimeters with some wire cutters and achieved the perfect fit. There are more elegant versions of these bar end tire plug tools but Sessions are far lighter, cheaper and get the job done.
