It is the self adhesive patch kit, branded pwc or something like that.

Do not but this product

I have had a flat for the past 3 nights at work after 3 separate patches gave up after being repaired about 3 months ago. Don't know if it is the heat or what but they just give way.

Anyone got any recommendations for a good self adhesive kit? I am probably going back to the old vulcanizing kits, takes longer but more reliable.

I think they're all a bit rubbish at road tyre pressure, use the old glue and patch.

I prefer the Topeak Flypaper, but I dont think any of the glueless are designed as a permanent fix.

I normally use a glueless on the road and fix properly when I get home, but on my road bike I tend to just put a new tube in, i get the ones from Decathlon at £1.50 so its not a huge expense

I've used the halfords one, yellow with a foam back. These have worked well for me and lasted well. But as Jason.Timothy.Jones says I use these mainly to get me home as a quick fix these days.
