- flavour of the month tubeless sealant ?
I think just about every review of cafe effeto said it was better for fitting and sealing tyres and not very good at punctures.
I’m still using Stans, it just works. Occasionally I add glitter, if there’s an actual benefit other than making it glittery, I honestly don’t know. But glitter! My sealant is fabulous.Posted 4 years agopaul_mSubscriber
I have used Cafe Latex, Stans and the continental one. Found the Cafe Latex sealed up non UST tyres quicklyy, but bigger punctures weren’t sealed as well. Stans and the Continental one sometimes seem harder to get the tyre to seal, but once it has they stay up fine, and no issues with punctures.Posted 4 years agotrail_ratMember
buying a new supply for sealant – havnt used sealant for a number of years since i stopped racing – prefer the faff free easy tire change method of tubes for recreation riding – but i see value in having tubeless for racing.
last time i bought stans as it was best on the market but caffe effeto was just coming out suggesting theirs “foamed” rather than sloshed about.
anyone tried it , did it ever deliver ? wiggle indicates the price is similar for a litre.
any other brands i should look at – IIRC bonty stuff was crap and slimes version of the tubeless sealant was crap also – AND it froze at low temperature.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Yeah, it seemed alright, I had a couple of punctures that eventually resealed with it but seemed to take longer than Stans (then again, you can never be sure). But it did the job.
I mainly went back to stans because they didn’t look too happy being mixed, and so I stuck with what’s easy to find in the shops.
Oh yah, just back from endurance downhill racing at fort william. Flow + Stans + maxxis dualply + low pressures, huge success. Eclipse “puncure resistant” innertube, unmitigated expensive fail. Ah well.Posted 4 years ago
