PALIGAP | All Things Tubeless

Paligap are making big moves to become the UK’s authority on all things tubeless

Over the last 12 years Paligap has been distributing Stans NoTubes, servicing over 1000 UK dealers on an annual basis. Earlier this year Paligap announced their partnership with tyre giant ‘Goodyear’ in their second foray in to tyres after a 120 year hiatus. Goodyears line up is based around tubeless compatibility offering the full range in a ‘tubeless complete’ specification.

Now in a bold move to capture the growing market of tubeless converts, Paligap have introduced a new POS unit to the UK housing the top 12 bestselling lines from the Stans NoTubes range, including the UK distributors house packaged Stans NoTubes Tubeless Kits for Mountain and Road Bike customer a-like. The unit is available free standing or in a slat wall mounted format and offers an increased margin for dealers with a 90 day money back guarantee.

Paligap have also employed a new Brand Manager; Diego Di Napoli to oversee the Goodyear and Stans NoTubes brands, replacing Ben Evans who has decided to take a 9 month sabbatical, traveling the world.
Diego’s career in the bike industry includes 5 years with Schwalbe as a territory brand manager, time with Cycloc as operations manager and more recently with Vee tyre as UK Sales and Marketing Manager. Diego brings with him expert knowledge of the tyre industry and experience working with dealers and account managers to form long lasting, beneficial relationships for supplier and dealer.

To bolster this new team and support the growth in the tubeless market Paligap have also employed a North (Thomas Wild) and South (Pim Ramselaar) Sales and merchandisers. Thomas and Pim will be traveling the country spreading the ‘tubeless’ word providing training for dealers on Goodyear and ‘Stans’ as well as helping to merchandise brand displays and selling product.

Paligap owner, David Lane had this to say on Paligap’s new direction; As Paligap have been involved with the tubeless market since 2006 we have seen how tubeless has become the norm for the Mountain bike market and with the number one brand Stan’s they have provided and continue to create / innovate new products. We also believe with the tyre & rim technology slowly developing in the road / gravel sector of cycling that we are very well set with both Stan’s & Goodyear to capitalise when this really takes off. Paligap are committed to supporting both brands with the team put together and welcome any new dealers or existing accounts that require training and or information on both brands.
