Stans NoTubes Tubeless Sealant

by Mike on October 28, 2008

I made the switch over to Stan’s from Bontrager Super Juice nearly 8 months ago, when I put on a brand new Maxxis Larsen TT rear tire. I also cleaned out my Specialized Roll X front tire and filled it with Stan’s.

Still no flats, no bead burps, and I’ve been off the beaten path exploring primitive cactus infested rock strewn singletrack. I have refueled each tire once.

What I really like about Stan’s is that I rarely have to pump my tires before rides. Pressure stays right where I want it, between 28 and 30 lbs.

Stan’s lives up to all people say about it. Plain and simple. That said, seeing Stan’s is a whole lot less expensive than Super Juice, I will choose Stan’s. Even though I really do like the Juice, I can’t pay nearly four times the price for practically the same performance. 32 oz Stan’s, $15.00. 8 oz Super Juice about $15.00 (I’ve seen it between 10 and 20 dollars). No brainer.

I run Bontrager Race Lite Tubeless rims and tubeless tires. I have not converted my singlespeed running 1995 Mavic rims to tubeless yet. I run Slime tubes in there and it’s been great. For a tutorial on setting up the NoTubes system visit Team MWC…

My next tubeless sealant review will be the new Slime Pro-series tubeless sealant. I picked a demo bottle of it up at Interbike. But the way the Stan’s is running it may be a while before I get to it…

I have tried both super juice and stans and have found stans seals better but found out the hard way that stans tends to run better at a lower pressure.
