- Top quality tubeless sealant from legendary downhill racer Steve Peat!
- New from legendary downhill racer and mountain biker Steve Peat, Peaty's Tubeless Sealant!
- Ammonia-free, latex-based, non-hazardous tubeless sealant fluid, developed in conjunction with some of the best riders in the world.
- Unique formulation means that excess sealant won't dry up and ball up in your tyre over time.
- Easily cleaned off and washed out with water.
- Biodegradable platelets help seal holes up to 6mm. These platelets are the 'glitter' you can see in the sealant, but don't worry - they're made from a special form of cellulose primarily from eucalyptus (which is sourced from responsibly managed and certified plantations), so along with looking after your tyre pressure Peaty's are looking out for the environment too.
- Fast acting sealant makes setting your tubeless setup up initially a breeze, and is great for managing porous tyres or bead/rim gaps.
- Added corrosion inhibitors prevent degradation of your tyres and rims.
- CO2 compatible, so if being used on a mountain bike rapidly reinflating your tyres with a CO2 canister is no problem!
- Operating pressures: 15 to 120psi. Operating temperatures: -20° to 50°C.
- Supplied in a 500ml bottle, along with flexible connector hose.
- Setup instructions from Peaty's:
Road 30 - 45ml.
Cyclocross 60 - 75ml.
26" MTB 60 - 80ml.
27.5" MTB 70 - 90ml.
29" MTB 100 - 120ml.
*Quantities quoted per tyre. For wider rim / tyre combinations and / or additional puncture protection or foam-type tyre inserts we recommend adding up to 50ml more sealant to the above quantities.
Shake the packaging vigorously before every use to ensure an even distribution of platelets.
Rinse away any dirt, oil and other sealants from the tyre and dry off completely. See the below FAQ section for more detailed information on this.
Seat both sides of your tyre onto the rim and inflate initially with no sealant, using a track pump, inflator or compressor to pop the tyre bead fully onto the rim. If using a track pump, a good tip is to remove the valve core before inflating as doing so allows a greater volume of air into the tyre and so helping it to seat more easily.
Deflate the tyre fully, taking care to keep the tyre bead fully seated on the rim.
Remove the valve core from the valve and Put it in a safe place (you'll need to put it back in shortly!)
With the valve at the three o'clock position, use the flexible injector pipe provided to inject the desired amount of sealant directly through the de-cored valve.
Re-insert the valve core and re-inflate the tyre to desired pressure.
Wash away any excess sealant that may have found its way to the outside of the tyre or rim with water.
GO RIDE! This will disperse the sealant around the inside of your tyre and rim sealing any small gaps.
PEATY'S TOP SEALING TIPS
Make sure you thoroughly clean the inside of your tyres of any dirt, oil and other sealants before you first setup tubeless. New tyres are often coated on the inside with a residual chemicals from the manufacturing process (specifically release agents) which can react with tubeless sealant and cause it to solidify prematurely.
Let the tyre dry fully after cleaning and wipe the tyre with Isopropyl Alcohol or our Disc Brake Cleaner before applying sealant.
Tubeless tyres rely on a thin lining of butyl rubber on the inside of the tyre to hold air (and sealant). Some new tyres (especially very thin / lightweight tyres) can have tiny imperfections in this lining making the tyre slightly porous so it is normal for new tyres to deflate slightly after the first installation.
Porous tyres may also absorb some sealant within the first few riding hours to help seal these tiny holes. In severe cases you may even see this small dots of white fluid coming out of the sidewall of your tyre. This is fairly normal and should seal within 24hrs but if your tyre continually leaks out of the sidewalls then contact your tyre manufacturer as there may be a larger fault with the tyres construction. Obviously, this sealant is designed for tubless-ready tyres only, it shouldn't be used for 'normal' tyres.
It is best to check your sealant levels after two weeks of application and top-up any lost fluid if required.
