The fabric is coated with 2 layers of polyurethane which make the insert bag water repellent but not waterproof. Light rainfall, will bead off of the insert bag. A heavy downpour, however will soak the bag. ZÜCA offers rain covers for the ZÜCA Sport, All-Terrain and Disc Golf models.
When using soap or detergent on a fabric treated with a water repellent coating, there is risk of losing some repellency. Sunlight also diminishes the coating material. The repellent on our bags is very resistant to soap, most household solvents and sunlight.
How do I clean my ZÜCA?
Clean ZÜCA Frames using a sponge or soft cloth and mild detergent. Scrub gently, rinse and wipe dry. We have two different frame finishes. The Sport model is "Powder Coated” resulting in a non-toxic finish, more durable than paint. Using abrasive cleansers, steel wool or SOS pads may change the look of the finish. Magic erasers are recommended for difficult scuff marks.
Clean ZÜCA Insert Bags using a cloth/brush and mild detergent. Rinse and let air dry. Insert Bags can be removed from the frame for cleaning. We recommend letting the ZÜCA Insert Bag dry, while in the frame, to retain shape.
How long will my Sport Wheels flash before I need to replace the batteries?
The good news is that there are no batteries. The wheels generate their own electricity as they turn and should last a long time.
My Flashing Wheels don't flash, what can I do?
There are at least two options:
• You may have an incorrectly adjusted wheel nut or axle (no offense intended). Try tightening the axle bolt a bit with a 5mm Allen wrench and a small spanner or adjustable wrench to hold the inner nut. For earlier models, two keys are sufficient. Turn the bolt little by little until the wheel lights up when you turn it. (Be careful not to overtighten it or you will pinch the plastic fixture that will break the magnetic strip around it. If this magnetic strip is broken, you will need to replace the entire wheel.) After tightening the bolt, there may be some resistance when you turn the wheel, so you have to loosen the bolt gradually while checking the lights. The best setting is when the lights are flashing, but little resistance is felt when spinning the wheel and there is no side play when you try to wiggle the wheel.
• Another possibility is that you have left your ZÜCA in the water or in the mud for a while and the magnetic strip may be wet (or dirty). If this is the case, remove the wheel and then remove the bearings and plastic magnet armature from the wheel hub. Clean and dry everything and reassemble according to the above adjustment procedure. If your wheels still don't work, or if the above procedure seems daunting, please contact us. If it is under warranty, we will solve the problem.
I don’t want my wheels to flash, what can I do?
If you already have a Sport Frame with flashing wheels, you can replace the lower flashing wheels with the upper non-flashing wheels by simply removing the lug nuts and swapping one wheel for another.
