PRESS RELEASE: Peaty's

Taking everything we have learnt from racing at the highest level both on and off-road and building on the success of the original MK1 valves, the MK2 Valves take this to the next level with the addition of a world-first integrated spoke key Presta valve cap and unique, four-way X-cut base for tyre insert compatibility. The new valves partner perfectly with high-end wheels and are available now in 11 Chris King colours.


Not All Tubeless Valves are Created Equal

Creating the best performing tubeless valves on the market was no easy task. Starting with a premium 7075 Aluminium core and backed by our Peaty’s Valves for Life warranty, the MK2 Valves are designed to be durable and work perfectly with carbon or aluminium wheels improving performance and limiting leaks. A smoked black valve core maintains your bikes high-end looks before being topped with aluminium valve caps which incorporate both a valve core removal tool and a spoke key, so they’re always on hand should you need to carry any mid-ride adjustments. All MK2 Valves are available in two length options (42mm and 60mm) and are finished in matching Chris King colours meaning they will perfectly match your bike and are backed by the quality and sustainability that the legendary brand has become so well known for. A perfect partnership for us.

Insert Compatible

Thanks to the addition of a new and unique four-way X-cut base the MK2 Valves are compatible with tyre inserts and maintain airflow and sealant movement when inflating your tyres. The channelled base helps the flow of air and sealant into the tyre's casing even when the insert is pushed up against the bottom on the valve resulting in an easier and improved set-up. Having an open base (rather than the traditional drilled side holes) reduces the chance of blockages and means there's no compromise on air or sealant flow when no tyre insert is used.

Valves for Life

The best way to make a product eco-friendly is to make someone want to keep it and not throw it away. Peaty’s is so confident in the new MK2 Valves quality and performance that should you manage to break them, then we’ll replace the part free of charge.

The MK2 Tubeless valves are the valves of choice for the Santa Cruz Syndicate team, Canyon Collective FMB and the Canyon/DHB/Soreen road team and have been tested and proven at the highest level.

 Yes, 2020 bingo needs more happy colors! And w/ spoke counts trending down to 28 or less, while tire widths increase, having quick access to a spoke wrench so you can ride home w/o frame rub after rocks give your spokes tough love is brilliant!

 Guaranteed not to clog when used with Peaty's Sealant.

 Due to superior 7075 aerospace aluminum used in these valves, they perform 27% better than other, inferior 6061 valves.

Once you mangle your puny aluminum valve on a rock ora branch, you'll realize why you should use brass valves as well as spoke nipples and steel bolts instead of aluminum ones.

 I snapped my valve with my pump just in regular use, been waiting for some aftermarket insert compatible ones since no one seemed to be doing them, quite like the handy spoke key for when I figure out they are loose halfway through my ride too

 Duly noted: we'll tell Minnaar, Vergier, & Co they need to slow down and hit more rocks like you, so you can be right!

 The picture of the cush core just underlines my shitty experiences with FCK Flats

 oh no, i just went and ordered FCK flats and the mk1 peatys valves....

 Could you please provide some more detail? I run FCK Flats with Supergravity front and back for about 6 months now and no issues at all.

 @Kamba6: While shitty might be exaggerated, I have a second one lying around that i'm not gonna use. At first I was stoked, as the FCK is fairly cheap, light, stems from a good name, and made a good first impression while installing. It's tough to aline perfectly straight without the tire wobbling, and even after achieving an acceptable standard, it slipped inside the tire after a while, creating another wobble. It didn't really bother me though, as the main reason for the insert was to prolong the life of my rear rim. And that's where i was dissapointed. Riding with the same air pressure as before, on hard hits it almost felt the same as without, cutting the insert and causing a dent. Even if there is an impact range where the insert helps, it's really small.

 @trippleacht: sounds like it's getting relegated to the front and something beefier going in the rear then

 @trippleacht: not sure how and how much you use them? I ride them a looot in rocky alpine terrain ( ews zermatt recently) , usually about 1.1 front 1.4 rear (75kg) full gaz with my enduro. Altough you hear sounds sometimes, after 1.5 years no dents in my ex1501's. The last insert had about 100 slids (no exaceration!) On the sides, so I change them from time to time as they are relatively inexpensive. I even had a flat in one race and could ride out for about 2 minutes. Since they are very wide they also stay on the rims. Only complaint: they suck milk. About 40 grams after time. Huck norris do that too. I think on most inserts the milk sticks (also on procore!). So I really wonder why you have such a negative impression of this great inexpensive product?

 @trippleacht: Thanks mate. That's interesting. I can't say I've had any of the issues you outlined. I've never checked wor wobble though. I'll have to do it now.

 @trippleacht: update: insert came today, seems very soft foam. otherwise decent. running with a dh tire anyway (kenda pinner) so rim cutting through insert shouldn't be an issue

 After trying my way through 3 or 4 different brands of tubeless valves, I'll stay with Peaty's - they do a great job! Love my MK1s

 laughing my ass off at the idea of truing my wheel using a valve cap as a spoke wrench.

 That comparison is like the idea of someone using a minipump to set a tubeless tire. I think the idea of these caps is for impromptu situations - i.e. out riding and notice a loose spoke.

 For sure.
How tight can you get a brass nipple with an aluminium tool?
