Gryyp - emergency tire repair

What is Cargol?


Cargol is the new product patented by Nagesti and marketed by Gryyp Line that will allow you to solve the problem of a puncture wherever you are, in a matter of seconds, and without the need for tools or chemicals that could make subsequent repairs difficult.

What is it used for?


The Cargol has been specially designed to repair punctures in any tubeless tyre. In just a few second and with minimum effort, you will be able to drive off afterwards, as if nothing had happened.

How does it work?


The 5-step threaded helicoid design and toric ring located at the top ensure that the puncture is safely sealed. The tip, at an angle of 17ยบ, makes it easy to insert and the wide grip enable you to insert Cargol easily until the hole is plugged. Since it is inserted through the toric spiral thread, it does not erode the tyre and therefore there is no increase in the hole diameter.

Who can use it?


Cargol has been specially designed for extreme ease of operation, and no special skill is required. All you have to do is insert the tip, screw it on as if it were a valve and then break it off, all with the least possible effort. No additional tools are necessary. Any person can use it with no difficulty whatsoever. Remember to use it only for emergency repairs and take the tyre to your habitual workshop to be examined as soon as possible.

What is it made of?


The Cargol product is made by injection into improved polypropylene, with fibres. This combination of materials makes it a versatile tool that can easily be broken off once screwed on, with great resistance to the moving of the wheel once the opening in the tyre has been blocked. Since it is inserted through the toric spiral thread, it does not erode the tyre and consequently, does not increase the diameter of the hole.

Can the mechanic afterwards with no problem repair the tyre?


The Cargol device can easily be removed from inside the tyre when the mechanic repairs the tyre. Use a pair of pliers to remove it, by unscrewing. It must be removed from inside the tyre, since from the outside, it is practically impossible to see the point of entry.

Can I use it on my bike or scooter?


Cargol is a very versatile tool that can be used on all tubeless tyres. Tubeless tyres have no inner chamber inside to keep them inflated.

Can I use it on my tyre?


Cargol is a versatile tool that can be used on any type of tubeless tyre. Tubeless tyres have no inner chamber to keep them inflated. There is a Cargol product specially designed for these tyres; read the instructions on the pack when purchasing the one that is right for you. It comes in two versions: one for cars, bikes and scooters (black) and one for trial bikes and quads/ATVs (green). At first sight the difference is hardly noticeable, but quite considerable when it comes to using it on the wrong type of tyre. This difference is not in its effectiveness in blocking the hole but its ease of insertion into each type of tyre in the abovementioned vehicles. This makes it a handy travelling companion that you should add to your key-ring, so that it is always at hand. It is suitable for tyres of all types. Remember that Cargol only makes an emergency repair and that you should have the tyre checked by your habitual workshop as soon possible.

Does it make a permanent repair?


The Cargol system has been designed to deal with emergency situations. Tests carried out on real vehicles (cars and bikes) have shown excellent results for Cargol in terms of resistance, reliability and functionality. After using Cargol to make an emergency repair, we advise you to visit your tyre specialist as soon as possible.

How long does it last?


No damage has been observed after using Cargol that could affect its future use, provided it is stored in normal conditions, without being exposed to direct sunlight or conditions of extreme damp for long periods of time.
In tests performed for 3 months on real vehicles, 3600km for cars and 2100km for bikes, no erosion or wear and tear that could affect the emergency sealing function was observed. However, after using Cargol to make an emergency repair, we advise you to visit your tyre specialist as soon as possible.

What do I need to use Cargol?


Thanks to its design, Cargol does not require any additional tools to be used in the event of a puncture. Just follow the simple instructions on the pack in which it was purchased; place the Cargol tip in the hole, screw it in clockwise and break if off, once it has reached the end of the head.

Who can use it?


Individuals, transport companies, racers and trippers among others. Thousands of users now have Cargol on their key-rings, in their tool boxes, or in their glove compartments, etc. Not just because they have purchased it in a shop, but because some bike, scooter and quad/ATV manufacturers include Cargol in their tubeless models and/or their catalogues, as an essential accessory for users.

How does Cargol work?


Cargol is specially designed to allow for easy insertion, and can be easily screwed on and broken with minimum effort. Just insert the tip, screw it in as if it were a valve and break it off; no additional tools are required. By following three easy steps, your tyre will be ready for you to drive off safely until you reach your workshop, where the tyre can be repaired by a professional, through vulcanising. Despite the excellent results in tests made on real vehicles in the city, in the country and on the motorway, Gryyp Line recommends using Cargol as emergency tool and we thus recommend you visit your regular workshop as soon as possible to have the tyre permanently repaired by a professional.

How do I find the hole?


If repairing a puncture with our K004 or K005 kit, you will find a practical piece of chalk to mark the exact place of the nail before removing it. If you have forgotten to mark the location of the nail before removing it or if the nail falls out while driving, proceed as follows: use the CO2 cylinder supplied in any of our kits (K004, K005 or OEM), and then pass the palm of your hand over the tyre surface slowly until you feel the air coming out of the puncture hole. You can then use Cargol to block the hole until you reach your workshop in order to repair the tyre.

What to do if the Cargol protrudes from the tyre?


After screwing on the Cargol and breaking the left-over part used as a support to insert it, the Cargol may protrude slightly from the tyre. This occurs when the tyre is new and the hole is very small. In this case, the part of the Cargol inserted into the tyre will be more than sufficient to seal the opening and will therefore break off before it reaches the final toric ring. Once you start driving again, the weight of the vehicle will cause Cargol to embed itself in the tyre and the part that protrudes will be eliminated. This ensures that the Cargol cannot come out of the tyre while driving.

Can it damage the tyre or rim?


Cargol does not contain any additional chemicals that could damage the tyre rim or the tyre itself or make subsequent repair difficult. Once you reach the workshop to have the tyre repaired by a professional, Cargol can be easily removed. Since it has been inserted by screwing it into the toric spiral, it does not erode the tyre or increase the diameter of the hole.

Is it necessary to apply great force/skill to insert and turn it?


A certain amount of dexterity, skill and strength is required to use the puncture repair product in the event of an emergency with the wick. For this reason, in its effort to provide useful solutions that can be applied by everyone, Gryyp Line has created Cargol which does not require any previous experience or knowledge in order to use it. It is extremely easy and intuitive to use. This is based on our wish to continue conducting research into solutions that are available to everyone.

What if the hole is very large?


No hole that is made in normal driving circumstances (on a motorway or off the road) will exceed 2 mm. Cargol has been designed and tested to perform in all these cases, with excellent results. In addition to the toric spiral thread for ensuring safe sealing, it has a larger toric ring at the end of the thread, for sealing in cases in which the hole is larger. In the case of a cut in the tyre, unfortunately, we still do not have a solution that can be used by everyone, but we are still carrying out research into this.

Can I use two Cargols for the same hole?


This is not necessary. One Cargol is sufficient for a safe emergency repair that will enable to reach your destination. If using two Cargols to repair a cut in the tyre, this will make it difficult for the Cargol to seal it, thereby reducing its effectiveness.

Can I apply sufficient force to insert and/or break off the Cargol?


Thanks to its wide thread and the fact of having a gripping surface of 28 mm, you will not need to apply too much force to insert Cargol easily into the hole in the tyre. A series of incisions located above the toric ring will enable the Cargol to be broken off with no effort or difficulty. You can do this with a simple twist of the wrist, without having to use any additional tools.

Is it necessary to use a tool to insert Cargol?


No additional tools are required to use Cargol. Just insert the tip into the hole, screw on and break off with a simple turn of the wrist. All you need to use Cargol are your hands.

What happens if the nail has not come out?


If the nail has not come out, we suggest that if the tyre is not losing too much air, you use the CO2 cylinders. These are included in the original equipment manufacturer's kits and kits on sale to the public. That way, you can get to a workshop where a professional can permanently repair the tyre. If the tyre is losing a lot of air, despite the fact that the nail is still inside, or if the nearest workshop is very far away, remove the nail. To do this, use a pair of pliers, such as those that come with the kits on sale to the public (K004 and K005). The procedure is quite easy; just follow the instructions on the back of the blister pack. After removing the nail, all you have to do is insert the tip as if it were a valve, and break it off, without the least effort. No additional tools are necessary.
