Zefal puncture repair kit
Cycling Weekly Verdict

Although the kit is cheap, the quality isn't as high as other brands. You get what you pay for.

    Flimsy levers

At almost the same size as the Halfords set, Zefal has done well to cram in two tyre levers and the same amount of glue and patches.

It's missing some chalk, but if you can live without it you're onto a winner.

If that wasn't enough, they're selling it for 25 per cent less than the Halfords product. The downside to the lower price is lower quality.

The levers were a little flimsy compared to that of the Lezyne's, and the patches were quite rigid and so aren't ideal for thinner tubes.
