Frequently Asked Questions

How often should you add tubeless sealant to your tyres?

It all depends how often you ride! If you’re riding at least 1-2 times a week, the sealant should last as long as the tyre does.

What tyre pressures should I run when using a tubeless setup?

It totally depends on the size of your tyres and the manufacturers recommendation. Our Tubeless Sealant works from 15psi to 120psi and temperatures from -20C to +50C.

How can I tell if my tubeless sealant has sealed a puncture?

Our Tubeless Sealant formula contains a UV detection system that highlights any punctures you haven’t spotted during your ride. Simply shine the UV torch, included with the sealant, onto the tyre and it’ll light up!
