After my race at Xterra Camp Eagle I had the opportunity to chat with Steve and Chris on a new product launched, formed in the place they crown "keep it wierd' based in Austin TX but is storming wildly across the US and in time im sure it will progress to an International stage. I am delighted to back this brand because for sure this is no ordinary product. The science goes beyond that of any other product of the same nature found on the shelf.
On that note here is a preview.
"The days of using tubes in the tires of bicycles are quickly coming to a close. Tubes add weight and another item to the list of bicycle parts that can fail and leave you walking. With new rim and tire technologies, rim tape, and a good liquid tire sealant you can create a system that is lighter, more resilient, and better performing. Weight savings occur because tire sealant and rim tape weigh less than a tube. In the event of a puncture to your tire Orange Seal quickly clogs the hole and stops air from escaping thus allowing you to continue riding without stopping to repair a damaged tube. So if you haven't already made the decision to go tubeless now is a good time with a top product like Orange Seal you wont look back.
Orange Seal Formula
The liquid formula tire sealant uses nanotechnology and variety of solid particles of varying sizes that are suspended in a proprietary liquid solution. Without divulging trade secrets suffice it to say that multiple particle sizes in Orange Seal solution means that the product can seal larger punctures and seal them quicker than other tire sealants.
