Cal Springs Announces New Tire Liner Sizes and a New Brand

Thorns, glass, and other road debris are equal opportunity tube deflators. So when bicyclists embrace a new tire size, Cal Springs decided it needed to immediately expand its new brand of tire liners to include the 29'rs. The new brand is STOP Flats 2. Company president Steve Finch explains:

"Our STOP Flats brand has been the second best selling tire liner in the bicycle business for 15 years. We felt it was time to introduce a top-of-the-line product with dual durometer technology. By using state-of-the-art urethanes, we are able to give maximum protection against flats with a high durometer surface facing the tire, while protecting the tube from chaffing using a low durometer facing the innertube."

Cal Springs acknowledged that they will not be the first to offer a dual durometer solution. However, the will be the first to do so with a lifetime guarantee against flats. Finch adds: "The STOP Flats brand has always offered this guarantee and we believe this has been a major benefit to the dealer and the consumer. By extending the guarantee to the new brand, STOP Flats 2, the consumer is now protected for all sizes and qualities of liners."

Sizes to be added include the fat 29'r which fits 29 X 2.25 - 2.50 color coded lavender, the 29'r mtb which fits 29 x 2.0 - 2.125, color coded tan, and the freerider which fits 26 X 2.25 - 2.50, color coded sage.

STOP Flats 2 is carried by most major national distributors and is available for immediate shipping.

About Cal Springs, LLC
Cal Springs, LLC was formed in 2007 for the purpose of acquiring the assets of American Quality Products and AC Technologies, dba AC International. The new owners, Dan Oas and Steve Finch were seeking to acquire a US based manufacturing company with a product line that was unlikely to be going overseas. Both owners have extensive contacts in Asia and a wealth of experience importing from Asia, but felt that a great niche is still to be found in producing product in the US.

The assets purchased included the California Springs line of bicycle water bottles, the STOP Flats line of tire liners, and Quik Stik tire changing tool. Cal Springs has already added substantial capacity to the bottle manufacturing plant, and is intending to add several new products prior to the Spring of '08. Within 2 weeks of the acquisition, the company created an entire new brand of tire liners including three new sizes, and a new water bottle.
