To go along with their newly released tire line, Goodyear’s bicycle brand is adding their own tubeless tire sealant. Meant to perfectly complement their Tubeless Complete tires, the sealant should also work in other tires and adds yet another option for the consumer.

Designed to work in an extreme range of temperatures, Goodyear claims the sealant will work all the way down to -30°F. If that’s true, it should be a good option for fat bikers or anyone who rides in the winter. It also claims to seal punctures up to 6mm wide.

Packaged in a 150ml bottle, the application bottle is single-serve for a set of wheels – if you’re running 29.2.6″ tires. Goodyear carefully chose the 150ml sized bottle to be able to claim it’s a single serve bottle for nearly all standard tires. While it will only cover two large 29er tires, it will fill up to four 700 x 25mm road bike tires. According to Goodyear, they feel that since every tire sealant has a limited life span, packaging it in smaller bottles makes sense and will lead to less waste. Goodyear’s sealant has a shelf life of 18 months when sealed, and up to seven months of “optimum operating effectiveness.”

Retailers will purchase the sealant in boxes of 12, and each bottle will sell to consumers for $9.95.

    • Plus there’s the ‘convenience’ of having to either buy the sealant more frequently or have a bunch of small bottles sitting around. I would much rather buy a 1L bottle every couple of years and always have some on hand to slosh in for a top up. Not had a problem with Stans or Joes going off.

      • The bottle size isn’t necessarily aimed at you the consumer the idea is to increase frequency of visits to the bike shop for sealant. I don’t know too many riders who go to the bike shop for one thing and don’t leave with other stuff. It’s also a good add-on item at a price point that’s attractive for that purpose e.g. “picking up some tubes for my road bike ohh I think I might need sealant lets add that its only 12 bucks less than two artisanal latte’s”.

        I’ll stick with my 1L bottle of stans but it’s not a terrible idea especially since I’m more likely going to think more strategically think of my bulk purchases and buy them online.

  1. 10$ for 150ml, that’s crazy, people don’t get how much sealant you need to keep your tubeless setup running all year long. That’s is barely enough for 2 average mtb tire. If some sealant is lost in the first sealing it might not be enough. 1.5 month later you’re toasted. With my 2 tubeless bike (1 road, 1 mtb) i use a bit more than 1l a year.

  2. I claim bollox on that sealant going off thing. My orange seal is fine for months in a big shop bottle. Although I suppose its sealed as in the cap is screwed on.

    • Yeah, the argument doesn’t hold water. On the one hand, a small volume of the sealant is supposed to last for months in your tire, where it’s being vigorously mixed with a large volume oxygen at double the atmospheric partial pressure. On the other hand, a much larger volume of sealant in a bottle containing a relatively small volume of air, undergoing no mixing, is supposed to go off before you use it.
