Just cut a piece off the end and re-do 2 holes?

They are made for tubeless tyres

You cut the tube open, slide the foam insert inside and then use a couple of patches and glue the tube back together

You buy 2 per wheel and use them instead of tubes.

i guess they must come in pill form like those bath dinosaurs that you can insert into your tubes through the valve, then just some water in there and youre good to go!

"weighs > 100grams"

Cool, like, how much more? 10 000 000kg? 101g?  Not that weight on my wheels matter, but just being a nerd...

I'm running the FOAMO already and it protects my tires and rims very well! :)

Their slogan must be coming back to (snake) bite them...

"Losing your mind is one thing...

Losing a race because of a flat tyre unacceptable!"

How necessary is this for ali rims I wonder? I get the pinch flat protection but my last two flats resulted in holes through the tread as well as an at the rim puncture. The rims themselves (Flows) were pretty much unscathed. I suspect these things have arrived on teh market as a direct response to easily damaged carbon rims being more popular. For 100g a wheel and R600 I'd be tempted to simply buy a good ali wheel set and save many thousands of Rand.

That is a shedload of cash for what is just profiled closed cell foam, I'm pretty sure I could DIY something to work with very similar results using a strip of 20mm x 50mm wide(tweak to suit your tyre width) closed cell foam, which from past experience buying foam it will cost around R100 for both wheels from the local rubber and foam shop. The big advantage with these is the channel cut-out in the middle that make them a more universal fit but seeing with DIY you can custom the width to suit your tyres that's not really an issue.
