    Tubeless Liquid Questions

    Why do we use red dye in tubeless fluid?

    When the anti-puncture liquid is at rest we will clearly see part of the tubeless liquid in pink and part of the sealing liquid in white.

    This tells us that the bicycle anti-puncture fluid is not mixed well, and thus forces us to shake it before inserting it into the wheel.

    It is important to shake the tubeless sealant liquid well so that all the ingredients of the product are mixed.

    What is tubeless fluid or anti-puncture fluid?

    Tubeless puncture protection fluid is a chemical product usually based on latex, either synthetic or natural, that is introduced inside the wheel to seal punctures.

    It is normally used in tubeless wheels, although there are also tubes with tubeless sealing liquid. When a puncture occurs, the tubeless sealing liquid is dragged by the difference in pressure to the outside and solidifies with the contact of air, plugging and sealing the hole.

    It is designed to seal the multiple punctures that occur during an outing, for example brambles, small nails, etc. It is not designed to seal large cuts or holes, in this case the cold vulcanized tubeless kit would be used.

    This type of puncture is very common to suffer during cycling, happening several times in the same outing depending on where we ride. Depending on the formulation it will seal larger holes and cuts more or less quickly.

    There are very dense anti-puncture liquids that can plug larger holes but they act more slowly, we can even see liquids with solid particles inside to help seal.

    On the other hand, a less dense puncture repair liquid, if the composition is of quality, will seal super quickly and plug most of the cuts and holes that we may suffer.

    At Migou Bcn we manufacture a very fluid tubeless liquid to obtain a super fast seal, since the majority of punctures suffered are usually small, caused by brambles, spikes or nails.

    We use a very high quality formulation to seal cuts of considerable size at a very high speed, using a mixture of synthetic latex for greater durability inside the wheel, lengthening the change of anti-puncture fluid, and natural latex for greater speed in sealing speed.

    With this we manage to lose as little air as possible and the cyclist will not even realize that he has suffered several punctures, since he will not have to stop to refill his air.

    What is the best fluid for tubeless?

    Basically there are two types of anti-puncture fluid for bikes, those based on natural latex and those based on synthetic latex.

    Tubeless liquid based on natural latex

    Natural latex has the property of turning very quickly into rubber with the contact of air and sealing the puncture, making it perfect for riding through bramble and spike areas.

    This beneficial property for sealing punctures is also a disadvantage since a rubber will gradually form inside the wheel. Therefore, in addition to replacing the tubeless sealing liquid that is lost if we ride in areas where punctures are common, for example using the tubeless syringe , the resulting rubber inside the wheel must be removed quite often, especially if it is hot. .

    It is advisable from time to time to disassemble the wheel and remove the rubber residue that forms inside the wheel.

    Tubeless liquid based on synthetic latex

    Synthetic latex does not turn into rubber as quickly as natural latex, we can better control its drying and fluidity. For example, it is suitable for use on the highway, in the city or in less aggressive areas.

    Since we will not have to replace the tubeless sealing liquid as frequently as we will not suffer losses due to punctures and we can lengthen the extraction of the formed rubber.

    New Migou Bcn Tubeless Liquid formula

    At Migou Bcn we are using a new formulation that mixes natural latex and synthetic latex, with this we achieve a very fluid liquid with a quick response, while extending the life inside the tire.

    It is an anti-puncture fluid for tubeless that can be used both on MTB and on the road.

    How long does tubeless liquid last?

    It is one of the questions that does not have an exact answer, since it depends on several factors.

    The heat will cause the tubeless anti-puncture to dry much faster than in the cold, so in summer the fluid will have to be renewed every 2-3 months and if it is a very hot area perhaps sooner.

    On the other hand, if we live in an area with cold winters, it is most likely that it will not dry out during the entire cold season, that is, 4-5 months.

    Also, depending on the kilometers you do per week and the area where you ride, you will have to replenish the anti-puncture fluid since it will be lost while sealing the punctures.

    Another factor to take into account is the number of punctures we suffer.

    Sealing fluid is lost with each puncture, as it takes time to seal, and we lose a small amount of puncture fluid.

    If we look closely when we get home after an MTB ride we can see small spots on the tire.

    These are traces of fluid for tubeless wheels that have sealed punctures.

    The recommendation is that at first we look at the liquid level monthly.

    This can be done by unbeading the wheel and looking at how much fluid is left or through the valve.

    A very useful tool is a tubeless liquid syringe.

    Since if we only fill and never remove the rubber waste, in the end it is weight that we add to the bike.

    The tubeless fluid will last a different amount of time for each cyclist, due to the area where they ride, whether there are more or fewer brambles or spikes, and the weather.

    As a general rule, in a cold climate it will last longer than in a very hot climate.

    How to remove tubeless fluid and how to clean the tire?

    Whether there is liquid tubeless sealant or remains of solidified anti-puncture liquid inside the wheel, it is important to renew it at least twice a year.

    One of the reasons for periodically changing the tubeless fluid is that a tubeless anti-puncture fluid that has been inside the wheel for a long time, even if it is still liquid, loses its sealing properties.

    A liquid that has been inside the wheel for 6 months seals slower than one that has been inside the wheel for 1 month.

    Another reason is that rubber particles of different sizes are generated that can clog the air valve.

    Depending on how long a tire lasts, a more or less thorough cleaning will have to be carried out, since a cyclist who wears out the tire in 6 months is not the same as a cyclist who lasts 3 years.

    If we are one of those whose tire lasts less than a newscast, simply removing all the old tubeless fluid, drying it well with a cloth or paper and re-applying anti-puncture fluid will be enough.

    On the other hand, if the tire lasts a long time, it is important to empty all the old tubeless fluid.

    Clean the inside of the tire well with isopropyl alcohol, let it dry and refill with tubeless fluid.

    Since if this is not done we will leave traces of dry rubber inside the wheel.

    How much liquid should you put tubeless? (29″ - 27'5″ - 26″ - Gravel - Road)

    There is a minimum amount of tubeless fluid recommended to use on each type of wheel.

    Although depending on the area in which we ride or if the weight does not matter much to us, it is better to use a little more.

    If the tire is new, it is advisable to use twice as much the first time, since the tire has pores that need to be sealed.

    And a quantity of tubeless fluid is also usually lost when heeling.

    How much liquid does a tubeless 29 carry?

    It is advisable to use at least 60 ml of anti-puncture fluid on already used wheels.

    How much fluid does a 27'5″ and 26″ tubeless carry?

    It is advisable to use at least 50 ml of anti-puncture fluid on already used wheels.

    In 27'5″ plus tires typical of electric MTBs, use 100ml.

    How much fluid does a road tubeless take?

    It is advisable to use at least 30 ml of fluid for already used tubeless wheels.

    Gravel tubeless fluid amount

    It is advisable to use at least 40 ml of fluid for already used tubeless wheels.

    Sealant liquid or bike anti-puncture gel?

    There are formulations of anti-puncture sealant products in liquid or Gel on the market.

    Normally, bicycle anti-puncture gel is heavier than tubeless liquid, since you have to add more because it does not flow as easily or quickly.

    In tubes with anti-puncture liquid, anti-puncture gel is usually used instead of sealing liquid for bicycle tubes since it takes longer to dry and it is not as easy to change it or it simply cannot be changed.

    In bicycle tubes with anti-puncture liquid, the sealant is usually in gel form since it must last the entire life of the tube.

    On the other hand, drying is not a problem with tubeless wheels since we can carry out maintenance and change the anti-puncture fluid for bicycles.

    But as a general rule, a less dense anti-puncture liquid for bicycles is more effective, since when suffering a small puncture and therefore loss of air, the anti-puncture liquid for bicycles will move to the hole and cover it more quickly and effectively.

    Change or put anti-puncture fluid on bike tube

    There are chambers in which the core or valve core can be removed and thus introduce anti-puncture fluid for chambers.

    Migou bcn tubeless fluid is suitable for use in tubes with anti-puncture fluid.

    We can use a tubeless fluid syringe to introduce the bicycle anti-puncture fluid more easily.

    What is the best tubeless fluid for road?

    Tubeless on the road is taking over, especially with the 28 size and its rolling comfort.

    The difference between a road wheel and a mountain wheel is the air pressure inside, which is much higher.

    That is why the anti-puncture fluid for road bikes that we use as tubeless road fluid must be prepared to act as a sealing fluid in tubeless road tires.

    In principle, anti-puncture fluid is not used for tubular tires, since the pressure is so high that it does not work well.

    MTB tubeless fluid may not be suitable for use as road tubeless fluid.

    On the other hand, road bike anti-puncture fluid will work as a fluid for tubeless MTB tires.

    How much weight is removed with tubeless?

    It could be said that an average of 100 grams per wheel is saved if the wheels are not tubeless and have to be tubed.

    It is true that by removing the tube we are subtracting weight, but if we have to tube the wheel (tape + valve + fluid) we add weight again and depending on the amount of tubeless fluid that we add, the weight will be very similar.

    The weight saving will depend a lot on the materials used, since a highly reinforced tire weighs more than one that is not reinforced, but it withstands punctures much better.

    If we use a tubeless rim and a tubeless tire it is possible not to use tubeless fluid, but the risk of getting a puncture is very high. Perhaps for elite athletes and very short races it may be an option.

    There are also ultralight tubes such as the tumbalito, which can be a very light option but we still have a risk of punctures.

    Generally, for normal riders, the reason for switching to tubeless is not weight, but rolling comfort, being able to lower the pressure without danger of pinching and the comfort of not regularly getting punctures.

    On the contrary, it is a more expensive system that requires periodic maintenance.

    Anti-puncture fluid: the solution to avoid breakdowns on your bicycle

    Anti-puncture fluid is an essential product for any cyclist who wants to prevent punctures on their bicycle. This product seals holes in the tires, preventing air loss and maintaining proper tire pressure. There are two types of anti-puncture fluid: tube sealant and tubeless sealant. The operation of both is similar, but they are applied differently. In addition, anti-puncture fluid has some advantages and certain drawbacks that must be taken into account before use. It is important to choose the right anti-puncture fluid to avoid frustration and ensure safe riding.

    What is anti-puncture fluid?

    Functions of anti-puncture fluid

    Anti-puncture fluid is a product used to prevent punctures in bicycle wheels. When a tire suffers a puncture, sealant fluid acts to seal the hole and stop the loss of air. Additionally, anti-puncture fluid is also used to maintain proper tire pressure.

    Composition of the anti-puncture fluid

    The anti-puncture fluid is made up of a mixture of latex and other polymers. Most anti-puncture fluids also contain fibers and particles that help seal punctures more effectively. Anti-puncture liquids for Tubeless systems are usually composed of more viscous and dense liquids, which allows the perforation to be sealed more quickly. It is important to note that anti-puncture liquids are not flammable or corrosive, so they do not damage the tires or air chambers of the bicycle. In addition, they do not contain toxic materials, so their use is safe for both the user and the environment.

    Types of anti-puncture fluid

    Sealing fluid for chambers

    This anti-puncture fluid is designed primarily for inner tubes. It consists of a solution based on latex or fibers that is added to the inside of the chamber and instantly seals punctures. Tube sealing fluid may be cheaper than tubeless sealing fluid, but it is less effective and requires more maintenance.

    Composition of sealing liquid for chambers

    Anti-puncture fluid for tubes is usually composed of water, latex and other additives such as pore sealants, patch sealants and lubricants. As it is shaken, the liquid mixes inside the chamber and adheres to the walls of the chamber, sealing any punctures that may occur.

    Sealing liquid for tubeless systems

    Tubeless sealant fluid is a specialized fluid used on tubeless wheels. It is added to the inside of the tire and sealed in place with an air compressor. This type of sealant liquid is more common for high-end bicycles, as they offer greater protection and durability.

    Composition of sealing liquid for tubeless systems

    The sealing liquid for tubeless systems is usually composed of water, latex, fibers and other sealing elements. These fluids are designed to seal the holes in the tire in the event of a puncture and reduce pressure loss in the wheels.

    Differences between both sealing liquids

    The main difference between sealing fluid for tubes and sealing fluid for tubeless systems is that the latter is designed specifically for this type of tire. Sealing fluid for tubeless systems is much more effective than sealing fluid for tubes, as it offers greater protection and durability over time that is significantly greater than that of tube fluid. Overall, using the right anti-puncture fluid for your bike can help avoid many problems and headaches, while providing a feeling of security and confidence on the road.

    How does anti-puncture fluid work?

    Action of the anti-puncture fluid in case of a puncture

    When a puncture occurs, the anti-puncture fluid expands into the hole in the tire and begins to solidify. Upon contact with air, a vulcanization process occurs that seals the hole in a matter of seconds. In this way, the anti-puncture fluid automatically repairs the leak and allows you to continue driving without interruptions.

    What size punctures can anti-puncture fluid repair?

    The anti-puncture fluid is capable of repairing small and medium-sized punctures that do not exceed 6 mm in diameter. If the hole is too large, the anti-puncture fluid will not be able to effectively close the leak and the cover will need to be replaced.

    How long does anti-puncture fluid protection last on a wheel?

    How long puncture fluid protection lasts on a wheel depends on several factors, such as the quality of the fluid used, the size and speed of the leak, and the air pressure in the wheel. In general, anti-puncture fluid can protect the wheel for several months, although it is advisable to periodically check the air pressure in the wheels and check that the anti-puncture fluid is still effective.

    Advantages and disadvantages of anti-puncture fluid

    Advantages of using anti-puncture fluid

    Prevents punctures of up to 6 mm in diameter in the tires.

    Maintains air pressure in the wheels for longer, increasing performance and driving comfort.

    It allows you to continue riding the bicycle even if a puncture occurs, since the liquid seals the hole.

    It makes repairing punctures easier, since it is not necessary to remove the wheel to fix it.

    Save time and money by avoiding unnecessary repairs in the event of a puncture.

    Improves driving safety by significantly reducing the possibility of accidents caused by unexpected punctures.

    Disadvantages of using anti-puncture liquid

    It must be renewed from time to time, since it loses its properties over time and the kilometers traveled.

    It can damage the chamber valve if applied incorrectly, so it is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions.

    Sometimes it can leave residue on the wheel that makes future repairs difficult.

    Anti-puncture fluid is more expensive than conventional tubes or tires.

    Sometimes it can put extra weight on the bike, which slightly reduces riding performance.

    It is not effective on all types of punctures, such as those caused by very sharp sharp objects.

    How to apply anti-puncture fluid

    Steps to apply sealing liquid in a chamber

    Remove the wheel tube and remove the cover.

    Deflate the chamber completely and remove the valve.

    Shake the bottle of sealing liquid well before using it.

    Pour approximately 60 ml of sealing liquid into the chamber.

    Place the valve back into the tube and mount the cover on the rim.

    Inflate the wheel to the pressure recommended by the manufacturer.

    Turn the wheel slowly and move it in different directions so that the sealing liquid is distributed evenly throughout the wheel.

    Steps to apply the sealing liquid in a Tubeless system

    Remove the valve from the Tubeless system.

    Shake the bottle of sealing liquid well before using it.

    Pour approximately 60 ml of sealant liquid into the tire.

    Place the valve back on the Tubeless system and mount the tire on the rim.

    Inflate the wheel to the pressure recommended by the manufacturer.

    Turn the wheel slowly and move it in different directions so that the sealing liquid is distributed evenly throughout the wheel.

    Check that the sealing fluid has properly sealed the wheel by performing a visual inspection or listening for air bubbles.

    The application of the anti-puncture liquid will depend on the type of tire you have. If you have covers and chambers, the process must be followed to apply the liquid to the chamber. Regarding tubeless systems, it is important to remove the valve from the system. In addition, it is essential to shake the sealing liquid well before using it and ensure that it has been distributed evenly throughout the wheel. Once the liquid is applied, it is necessary to turn the wheel so that it mixes properly. It is important to check after application if the liquid has adequately sealed the wheel since the process to seal tubeless wheels is more complex.
