Finish Line have announced the launch of a new tubeless tyre sealant, a ground-breaking product they say will change the way tubeless tyres are maintained.
Hank Krause, President and CEO of Finish Line, said the intention was to develop a sealant that wouldn’t have any of the negative characteristics of existing latex-based sealants.
“By partnering with Multi Seal, a long-time leader in industrial and military tyre sealants, we have created a sealant that significantly advances the technology for tubeless bicycle tyre sealants,” he said.
Finish Line Tubeless Tyre Sealant won’t cure inside the tyre once installed. Therefore, it doesn’t need to be refreshed every few months to maintain effectiveness. This sealant will last the entire usable life of the tire. Since there is no liquid latex or ammonia in Finish Line sealant, it is naturally non-toxic, hypoallergenic and safe for carbon fibre rims. Additionally, Finish Line Tubeless Tyre Sealant cleans up easily with water – no more scrubbing or scraping cured latex from tyres and rims.
FiberLink technology makes this possible. Utilizing DuPont Kevlar fibres, FiberLink seals are extremely robust once they plug a hole. When a puncture happens, fibres rush into the wound and quickly stop air loss. As the tyre flexes while it is ridden, the FiberLink mesh tightens and reinforces itself, creating a confidence-inspiring seal that will last ride-after-ride.
