We spent the better part of seven months developing and testing Enduro Seal before we made this tyre sealant available for purchase. And we continue to test and get feedback from our clients. As you can imagine no bike store would want to sell a new product without some substance and testing themselves. Just to name a few that have tried and tested the product and now is on sale in their stores: Freewheel Cycology Specialized , Chris Willemse Cycles, David George from The Gear Exchange, JP from Recycles, Chris Nixon from the Bike Park, Trail and Tar, Mark Bicycle Workshop and Leon and Kevin Evans from the Bike Shop in Plett just to mention a few. Enduro Seal was used by numerous participants and workshops at this years Cape Epic, Joburg to Sea, Sani to Sea and other events.
Mountain Bikers, Say Goodbye to Punctures!!!
It was a long and involved and process, where every inch of the 10,000km that was logged on my bike has been protected by Enduro Seal. Mileage aside, I’ve literally thrown everything at my tyres. Whilst Devil’s Thorns were designed to keep animals away from its more pretty yellow flowers, it also wreaks havoc on bicycle tyres. But it is also the ultimate test for a tyre sealant, and I’ve ridden over thousands of these vicious-looking thorns. The resultant holes in the tyre close up almost instantly, ensuring peace of mind and a continuous ride through the more prickly areas.
Some interesting facts:
No rim corrosion
PH-value ranges between 7.4 – 7.8, temperature-dependent
No balling of a rims inner latex-compound
During the test tyre, the tyre had been punctured hundreds of times using a nail and drill bit, the resultant hole seals in every single instance. The above pointers apply to a wide range of popular tyre choices, including Continental Race King RaceSport, Maxxis CrossMark UST-Tubeless, Black Panther XTRAC (tubeless) and Schwalbe.
Some fellow riders have also collaborated in the testing process with great feedback.
Packaged in 250ml bottles which also acts as a applicator, 1 litre bottles with a 250ml applicator and 5 litre bottles and soon to be released in 60ml bottles.
