Press Release: Muc-Off
Muc-Off are ending 2019 by launching their expanded tubeless range; now available worldwide from Muc-Off dealers, e-retailers and direct from muc-off.com. This new collection comes after the huge success of the brand’s award-winning tubeless sealant and best-selling tubeless valves launched which both launched last year.
“Like with our No Puncture Hassle & Tubeless Valves, we have tested each of the products in this range under the most brutal conditions on the planet with 100s of hours of R&D testing using a wide group of our pro-athletes.” - Andrew Syme, Muc-Off Product Design Manager
All the products within the innovative new range are designed to be user-friendly and hassle-free for every type of cyclist, from the trails to the tarmac, from those going tubeless for the first time to those maintaining an existing set-up.
“Once a cyclist goes tubeless for the first time, they rarely ever look back and so our aim with this new range was to break down those initial barriers by making set-up and maintenance as painless as possible.” - Alex Trimnell, Muc-Off CEO
Muc-Off have envisioned a three-step process that starts with 'Preparation' before moving onto 'Inflation' and 'Maintain'. The first step 'Preparation" involves setting up your rims to be run as tubeless and ensuring you have the kit to do so. In this step, they have included products like sealant remover, rim tape and their sealant which is sold individually and as part of a new setup kit.
The 'Inflation' step features a traditional CO2 inflator and their new B.A.M. product which should both inflate and repair punctures by injecting both latex foam and air into the tyre. The final part of their program is 'Maintain'. This includes their tyre plug system and a custom Muc Off case.
