Peaty's Tubeless Sealant

Press Release

Mountain bike legend, Steve Peat may have retired from racing Downhill World Cups in 2016 but he certainly hasn't taken his foot off the gas when it comes to pushing the limits of the sport. Peaty has been working closely with a team of scientists and product developers over the past two years to develop a revolutionary tubeless tyre sealant that will not dry out or ‘ball up’ within the tyre unlike most tubeless sealants currently available on the market.

Peaty - Peatys Tubeless Sealant

The non-hazardous, non-toxic and completely biodegradable formula has been tried and tested by Peaty and a motley crew of the world’s best Downhill and Enduro mountain bike racers on the UCI Downhill World Cup, British Downhill and the Enduro World Series circuits.The biodegradable ‘nano-platelets’ in Peaty's Tubeless Sealant perform like platelets do in the blood and assist with the repair of larger holes and tears in the internal tyre. The ‘nano-platelets’ are completely biodegradable but look like blue glitter so if you do happen to blow a tyre off the rim, it looks spectacular!

It didn t take Greg long to get back to the top after the Lourdes nightmare.

Peaty's Tubeless Sealant will soon be available in the refillable 120mrl ‘Trail Pouch’, which can be chucked in the bottom of your bag or toolbox until needed. One litre ‘workshop bottles’ will also be available too.

 @dtax: Well I believe Peaty's would have rainbow color glitter, just like the World Champ jersey.

 i mix Slime, Stans, and Orange along with a little stripper glitter, beach sand, and long grain organic rice together in 5 gallon buckets and get all the results and claims of the best science in MTBing.

 I can't keep you from doing it, of course but: IT'S f*ckING IGNORANT (to describe it as polite as possible) TO USE GLITTER IN YOUR SEALANT. IF YOU TEAR OR BLOW A TYRE THE GLITTER WILL STILL BE AROUND IN THE WOODS OR WHEREEVER WHEN YOU'RE LONG DEAD.
Or can I expect you to come back and pick up 1000 pieces of glitter one by one so it doesn't pollute our trails for years and decades? Good to see a biodegradable option, Cheers to Peaty!

 Does it really not dry out? I mean that's quite a substantial claim considering all the other do in a very short time. Are they claiming it literally takes one fill for the life of the tyre which in my case can he several years?!
  • + 37
 Ay up Clarky

Several years?! You need to get out and ride more lad (or do more skids)????????

Most other sealants on the market are ammonia based natural latex products. The ammonia gasses off rapidly at atmospheric pressures and will form balls/ dry up within a couple of months when sealed within a tyre.

We have come away from all that and used a natural solvent and manufactured sealing agent to do the same job which means it will stay as a solution.

The first trial batch we ever produced and put into a set of wheels are still going strong 18 months later????????

 @tommakin: thats interesting have you tested them on Continentals ? Those tires last for a while in local conditions so it would be a nice upgrade cause i have to add contis sealant few times in a season and it dryes out in winter when Trail bike doesn't have any use.

 @tommakin: Intersting. Wonder when we'll see it over here. Has it been tested in cold weather?

I haven't replaced a worn tyre for longer than I recall. 90s maybe?! Last time I binned a tyre was bust sidewalls. Usually that last long enough to be sold with the bike. I don't skid, lessons learnt young and poor made me not skid hardly ever. And Finland isn't exactly Canada, no mountains, no big hills, no way I'm wearing out a tyre in less than a year unless I commute on it.

 Will this sealant actually cross link in a puncture? All the biodegradable options appear to seal in a forever weeping poor seal in my experience. My understanding is that the synthetic base of these sealants will not bond across the puncture but rely more on a clog with particles. Can someone confirm the mechanism by which the sealant cross links on this formulation? Such as pH shift or solvent drying or other catalyst like behavior? If not, the sealants that result in clumps and webbing on the casing simply work way better.

 Think the Push-On's take the piss price-wise, but if this costs the same as Stans, can't see why not!?

 Edible glitter? Not sure if normal soft glitter (fishing lure type stuff etc) would be environmentally friendly, edible should be.
I've heard of people using glitter for that purpose, not sure id trust the normal hard stuff near my bike.
But anyways if it doesn't dry out as described and doesnt clog up any pivots or whatever, the other brands can go to hell. I'm in.

 There's a big difference between edible and biodegradable. For instance, my wife's cooking is biodegradable but you probably don't want to eat it!

 Number one reason for a DNF is still a flat. even if this is not the silver bullet at least is pushing in that area. Go Peaty.

 U don't need to buy these overpriced sealants... it's very easy to make at home with few ingredients readily available (windshield liquid, glitter etc). Google and mtbr are your friends.
  • + 4
 I would disagree ... sealant is probably one of the cheapest things in cycling. and making it at home can get messy and gross... mixing antifreeze with glitter and Slime tire sealant is somehow easier and cheaper than 20 dollars worth of Stans, that will last me and my 4 bikes a whole season?
  • + 1
 @cmcrawfo:

$30 worth of homebrew is like a gallon and a half.

Here in Utah I need to top off my tires every other month and do a complete drain and fill on my fatbike every spring. That's like $80 worth of stans.

That's not including tire swaps and such.

My stuff lasts over a year so making it in bulk isn't detrimental. I have a box of ingredients in the garage and marked a beaker to all the correct fill levels. Takes me 10-15min with cleanup to make a batch.

My stuff seals smaller punctures and pinholes in the sidewalls better than commercially available stuff.
  • + 2
 @UtahBikeMike: fair, if you are going through that kind of volume annually I can see the rational... For me, the 30bucks worth of stans I bought last year is still half full and very much liquid.... And hey, we all our quirks, I wax my chains in a crock pot. Love,Peace,Bicycle grease bro!

 if it doesn't dry up im getting some asap....awesome product if the claims are true I will us it in all my bikes and 1litre will last a hell of a long time. goodbye stans.

 Who has a tire on for several years
  • + 2
 It depends on riding style, conditions and tires... My last two pairs of Continental tires just don't wear. I'm quite lightweight and we don't have a lot rocky trails...

 @b-wicked: You just don't ride enough, man. That's it.
  • + 1
 I am one of those. Can't kill my Onzas. The tire-friendly surface in my region and my weight are a major factor for sure, but these tires are durable anyway. I only put the front tire to the rear and placed a new one in front, so several years is actually a litle too much. However, Peatys stuff is intresting.
  • + 2
 I suppose that it may be a good problem to have.

I spend over $1000 in tires a season.

 @Werratte: are you sure they aren't dead already? I have seen lots of tires get old and weathered, way befopre the tread has been ground down. The rubber compounds dry out and change over time.... you should try some fresh meat , it may just blow your mind.

 The slime sealant for cars is like this, doesn't dry out, just clots up. But it's crap at sealing the bead. Be interesting to see what's in it!
