Thanks to the Orange Seal VersaValve kit, not having the right tubeless valve for your rim may be a thing of the past. First spotted at Eurobike late last year, the new valve kits are now available in both consumer and shop packs depending on your needs.
When it comes to valves, it’s all about that base. For the best seal, you need to use a valve base that interfaces well with the rim which is why there are a few different shapes on the market. The brilliance of the VersaValve is that this base is replaceable based on your needs.
Starting with the correct length valve body for your application (32, 48, 60, or 80mm), you then decide which base, or grommet, to slip on the valve. At that point, just install the replaceable valve core, place through the rim, and add the o-ring and aluminum nut to tighten it all down.
I’ve been using a set since Eurobike with zero issues – just a simple, light weight, perfectly executed seal.
Not only are the kits great for consumer who can just buy the length they need knowing that it will work on almost any rim, but the large kit should help with shops doing a number of tubeless conversions.
The individual valve kits include two valve bodies, four replaceable valve cores, two of each base grommet, o-rings, threaded nuts, RVC (removable valve core) tools, valve caps, and stickers. The 32 and 48mm kits sell for $24.95, while the 60 and 80mm kits are $26.95.
