Suvi enjoys cycling in all of its forms, especially over long distances and on multiple days. What started as a hobby has now grown to be her lifestyle and a job, in which she can also utilise her MSc degree in investigative journalism. Although, most of her current investigations revolve around the mystery of sourdough bread baking and finding decent (amounts of) coffee on bike rides.

Thanks for your comment! Neither of these products is meant to be immersed in water/liquid for hours on end, either. The tag holder should hold the AirTag above the level of sealant and the AirTag itself is IP67 rated (maximum depth of 1 metre up to 30 minutes) and the silicone cover protects it from directly getting in contact with the sealant. So in reality, they should work ok despite being in the sealant-covered tyre... but I will update this review if the AirTag stops working anytime soon Smile

How on earth is this supposed to survive a hit with a kerb, pothole edge, rock, warerbar or branch? The whole point of tubeless is to be able to run low pressures to the point your tyre can survive a deep impact unscathed - which would smash this to bits and likely destroy the valve body in the process, leaving you stranded. This is a product only suited to balloon tyres on city bikes.

I have visions of coming into an unfortunate alignment with a pothole and having the valve stem percussively expelled followed by a fountain of sealant.
