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.
