Muc-Off makes some impressive claims for its new No Puncture Hassle Tubeless Sealant Kit. It boldly tells us it has used “cutting-edge microfibre molecules” that are able to fill large holes in the tyre up to 6mm. It’s biodegradable, non-corrosive and easy to wash off with warm water.
It claims the sealant lasts six months before it needs topping up, it won’t dry out or ball up and is compatible with CO2 canisters.
The British company says it has developed the new sealant in collaboration with “some of the world’s top downhill and pro-peloton” and it’s compatible with tubeless-ready and UST wheels and tyres.
Installation is said to be easy, the 140ml pouch is designed to fit straight onto a Presta valve, with the valve cores removed, to avoid making a mess.
Muc-Off has also developed a rather novel UV detection system that can highlight punctures in the tyre that the cyclist might not have spotted.
“We have tested ‘No Puncture Hassle’ under the most brutal conditions on the planet with 3 years of deep R&D using a wide group of our pro athletes from around the world. The formula we finally created is a result of 100s of hours of testing, the results of which have taken tyre sealant performance to a new level,” explained Alex Trimnell, Muc-Off Managing Director.
“The feedback we’ve had from our professional riders has been awesome! We are really excited to have created one formula which works to the highest performance in all tubeless tyres, from Pro Road Racing to World Cup Downhill and everything in between. Oh and lastly, we really don’t like single-use plastics so would encourage all to use our 1-litre refill to fill up the pouches.”
A 140ml kit costs £9.99 with 1-litre refill £29.99 and a 5-litre workshop kit costing £120.
