SANTA FE, NM — Ryder's Slugplug will be distributed by BTI within the USA, with immediately available stock. The MSRP is set at USD $10 for the Slugplug in the USA.

Ryder is the leading cycle accessory brand in South Africa and was founded 22 years ago. Ryder is a proudly South African brand that started in 1996 with the local development and manufacture of sports water bottles. This was followed by cycling helmets, tyre liners, tyre levers and various other products and the brand stands behind all its products with a Lifetime Guarantee. The Slugplug builds on this proud tradition and offers improvements to what is currently on the market;

1) Valve Core remover – No other tubeless plugger offer this
2) Prevents plug loss – The design has been optimized so that the shaft does not go in too deep, and that the chances of losing a plug is limited
3) The unit will come with both 1.5mm and 3.5mm plugs that comes packaged in a beautiful little envelope. This will cater for all cut sizes.
4) Lightweight – It weighs only 15grams making it possibly the lightest tubeless plugger.

Nico Ferreira from Ryder said: "We are very excited to team up with BTI and to offer the Slugplug through their network of IBDs. We are confident that the Slugplug and the BTI network will ensure success in launching the brand in the USA and offer great value to the end consumer."
