There are a number of options for injecting anti-puncture sealant into the tires mainly depending on the type of valve.
1st option is to inject the liquid directly into the tire through the valve
1.a. for large or Schrader valves, we need a valve stem core removal tool to correctly remove the valve core; larges valves can always be disassembled. Once the valve core is removed, the valve cavity will be free and ready to inject the anti-puncture liquid. Inject liquid directly from the bottle. Once the sealant has been introduced, we will retrace our steps reinserting the valve core making sure it is firmly screwed in to avoid air or liquid leaks. Now, inflate the tire.
1.b In the case of thin valves or Presta valves, we need to use the valve core tool to unscrew the valve core and remove it. Once the valve core is removed, the valve cavity will be free of any object and you will be able to inject the sealant liquid through the valve directly from the bottle. Once the proper sealant dose has been injected into the tire, we will retrace our steps reinserting the valve core making sure it is firmly screwed in using the Presta valve tool, to avoid any air or liquid leaks. Now, inflate the tire.
1.c. another option for thin valves or Presta valves is to inject the sealant liquid via a syringe. In this case you will need a syringe like the one in the picture with a fine rubber tube that fits into the valve and allows the flow of liquid into the tire through the valve itself. Before injecting the sealant, liquid remove all air from the tire and leave the valve core open. Insert the rubber tube firmly into the valve and press the syringe pump to inject the liquid into the tube, tubeless tire or road tubular. Once the proper sealant dose has been injected into the tire, we will retrace our steps reinserting the valve core making sure it is firmly screwed in using the Presta valve tool. Now, inflate the tire and in the case of tubeless tires or road tubulares, ensure the tire is well seated in the rim to avoid any air or liquid leaks. If you notice any air leaks in your tires, rotate and shake the wheel in all directions to ensure the liquid is well spread out inside the tubless tire or tubular, sealing any micropores.
2nd option: Only valid for road tubeless: Use tire levers to pry off tire and inject the liquid directly into the tire itself. Reseat tires onto rims and inflate ensuring tire is properly seated and there are no air leaks.
3rd Option: Inject liquid through a syringe recommended for this purpose. Fill syringe with sealant liquid, replace needle to be used to inject the tires. In this option, we do not need to deflate the tires however ensure you have a firm grip on the syringe pump to avoid it being ejected from the air pressure inside the tire. Ensure the needle pierces the tire correctly and simultaneously apply pressure to the syringe pump to inject the liquid into your tubeless, tubular or inner tube. If you don´t feel safe doing it with air pressure in the tires, you can always deflate the tires before injecting the liquid. After injecting all the sealant liquid, remove the needle (the syringe hole will automatically reseal itself with the liquid) and if you have deflated your tires, proceed to re-inflate them. Finally rotate and shake the wheel in all directions to ensure the liquid is well spread out inside the tire, sealing any micropores and joints. If you notice any air leaks, continue to shake and move the wheel around to ensure these are well sealed by the liquid inside.
The anti-puncture liquid is the perfect ally for tubeless road tires (tubeless, as indicated by manufacturer). We recommend you only use tubeless tires. Have fun nailing nails into your road bike tire and see for yourself how only a small drop of sealant leaks out and the tire, under 7-8kgs of pressure, doesn´t lose any air.
If you use tubulars with removable valves, simply open the tubular by removing the valve and by just adding 30-40mls of liquid, your tublular will be iron clad so you can forget about flats forever. Tubulars usually have fine and delicate inner tubes. Never let the tire deflate completely and maintain them inflated even if the bike is not being used for long periods. On the contrary the inner tube walls can stick to each other, rupturing when inflated again.
You can also convert the wheel to tubeless using our Road Kit being both tubular and inner tube free.
If you decide to use inner tubes again all you have to do is dismount the wheel, remove the valve, insert the tube and inflate with any issue. This is very practical in cases of larger cuts or holes that the sealant cannot fill.
If you are very careful you can remove the residual sealant liquid with water if it is still wet, carefully scraping with your fingers or a rag if it has dried completely. Only a few flakes of the residual product will come off.
There is controversy as to whether the tires become deformed and the tire brands have rushed to declare that this is because of the ammonia in the sealants. Since our sealants do not contain ammonia, any deformities cannot be caused by ammonia when using our product. Moreover when testing two different tire brands with our sealant, there have been cases where one tire has become deformed and the other not. Therefore we have to conclude that this issue is with the tire itself and not the sealant.
In the product specs you will find instructions on the different methods to refill your tire with ant-flats liquid.
Consider that the liquid has water as a part of its composition. As the water evaporates, the weight is the tire also decreases as the dry residue in the product is minimal. Therefore when you refill with sealant you will be adding some additional grams to your tire by replacing what has evaporated. the objective is to maintain a certain level within the tire.
We recommend refilling your tires with the recommended refill dose at least every two months; even though the tire has not had any air loss, the liquid inside looses some of its properties over time and needs to be replenished. This means that in case of a flat, if there is little liquid inside or it has dried up the little liquid left will not be enough to seal and repair the tire. Refilling a half dosis every 2 months guarantees your peace of mind, Esto significa que en caso de pinchar, si queda poco líquido porque está casi seco, o si ha pasado mucho tiempo sin recargar es posible que el poco líquido que quede no sea capaz de tapar el pinchazo. Media dosis cada dos meses te garantiza tranquilidad total, long lasting sealing and automatic repair of punctures en route.
This depends on many factors. If you use tubeless tires it will last longer as these seal more easily meaning the sealant needs to work less. It can last 3 or more months but we recommend refilling before that time as the liquid inside looses some of its properties over time. We therefore recommend checking your tires every two months.
Another factor is climate; the liquid evaporates or dries quicker in summer than in winter.
We always recommend checking your tires and liquid levels a few days before any type of competition.
To check your tires, desmount the wheel and leave it resting upright so that the liquid drains to the bottom of the tire. Do this away from noise. Put your ear close to the tire and shake it around in order to hear the liquid moving around on the inside.
Recommended dosis for tubeless tires or road tubulars:
Road tire: 30-40 ml per tire.
Recommended dosis for tires with tubes:
MTB 26”: 80-100 ml per tire.
MTB 27,5”: 90-110 ml per tire.
MTB 29”: 100-110 ml per tire.
Fat bike: 170-200 ml per tire.
Road tire: 30-40 ml per tire.
These ranges or recommended doses should be adjusted to each tire and its balloon factor. For thin tires, use the minimum dose and for thick tires we recommend using the maximum dose.
You can fill with a higher dose but it does not improve the sealant capacity and it does increase the weight. Check your tires periodically and refill when necessary.
Check your tires periodically and do not allow the sealant liquid to completely dry up inside (it will dry over time as the water in the liquid evaporates and this depends on a number of factors).
No, sealant liquid for tubeless MTB should only be used of for MTB tubless and tubular systems. It is formulated to work with lower air pressures and is less dense to guarantee a faster flow through the inside of the MTB tire.
