VLP glue made by Performix and a spare piece of PVC - a cheap beachball piece will be just fine. Put a piece of wax paper under the repair (inside the roll) so you don’t accidentally glue the ride roll together to the other side. Put something of weight over the repair for 24 hours.

Tear Aid type B vinyl repair tape works well too. You can get both on Amazon.

It looks like the type B is an easier solution since I don't have any transparent vinyl. Would it be the worst idea to use the entire 5ft strip on the majority of that seam to heed off any future tears?

Actually a very good idea! Make sure the adhesive tape is nice and flat with no wrinkles. Place it on slowly on a hard, flat surface. Follow the directions that come with the tape. Once it is on, rub it with special attention to the edges for good adherence. Don’t inflate right away, wait a day. Good luck.

I'm also having issues with my RR-700 that got a bunch of splits in the seam. I bought some Type B tape as suggested earlier and will report back after using it.

Well, this is disappointing to read as someone with an RR700 arriving tomorrow... Any acknowledgement from SHOSU about the apparent issues? If it's this prone to splitting I might see if I can get a refund.

Glad to hear some people having good experiences with the ride rolls as I've been thinking about picking one up. The shipping cost to the US (sorry for the pun) blows, though, so that's why I haven't.

They're fun as hell save for the seam splitting.



SHOSU as a company kinda pisses me off though. They seem to be legit and have pretty good marketing/products, but I'm not a big fan of the service. Their shipping was expensive relative to the speed (over $50 to ship the RR-700 and a beach ball and took almost a month to arrive). I also don't like how they limit the production numbers for their products (no more ThirtyThreeRooms SPH beach ball, RR-700 and -1200 are never restocked, several other production runs discontinued) which seems counterintuitive for a company which has such a large market to sell to, especially in Europe since y'all seem to be a lot more kinky than us Yanks.



I plan to get some Type b soon and attempt a repair. If this turns out to be a common issue over time, and more so than the average "good" inflatable, I'll pull my recommendation and spread the word elsewhere.

I’m going to sell a RR-700 soft touch blue ($50 + $15.50 for shipping) and a RR- 1200 soft touch pearl ($70 + $15.50 shipping). I live in the USA. I have a very bouncy pink one that I love. I’m 240 lbs and no problem bouncing on it. Super fun. I’ll take PayPal or Venmo. I’ll list on eBay soon so let me know as soon as possible.

Since no one here has shown interest, I'm listing them for sale.

It seems Shosu is going to sell newer Ride Rolls with bigger dimensions, new colors and stronger seams. I'm curious. I hope I get the correct colors which I want this time.
