The new Tubeless Valve are made using aircraft grade (7075) aluminium which Muc-Off says increases strength and reliability. It also means that they're lighter than the previous model, shedding a claimed 2g. That's a 17% weight saving.
Muc-Off has acknowledged the wide-spread use of tyre inserts and has felt the need to innovate.
So along with those new advantages, this iteration of Muc-Off's Tubeless Valve allows riders to take advantage of tyre inserts, thanks to grooves cut into the base of the valve. This not only increases airflow but also helps sealant get into the tyre through the valve better, says the brand.
True to Muc-Off form, the new Tubeless Valves are available in ten colours with two more said to be on the way in the coming months. Then they come in 44mm, 60mm and 80mm lengths so there will be a pair to suit your rims.
A pair of Muc-Off's new Tubeless Valves will set you back £25.
