Strengths:    Less expensive than a tubeless setup with Stan's

Weaknesses:    Doesn't actually work very well, i.e. it does not stop flats

Bottom Line:   
I ride where goathead thorns are a big problem. For years I used Slime tire liners with reasonable success. They prevented the goatheads from penetrating in most cases, but the liners move around in the tires, so every once in a while I'd get a puncture in a spot where the liner was off-center. Then I switched to tubeless with Stan's, which for me has a 100% success rate so far. I've pulled at least 20 goatheads and other sharp pointy objects out of my tires this summer and not once had a tire deflate on me. They piss out a little Stan's and they re-seal.

But Stan's is expensive, messy, and requires attention to maintain, so I thought I'd try another approach - tubes with Flat Attack. I put that setup on another bike and so far it has a 100% failure rate. Every goathead I've pulled out has led to a flat tire. The only good thing I can say about it is that it seems to at least slow the release of air through the holes - I've been able to get home without changing the tube on the trail. But the seal is not permanent like Stan's seems to be. An hour or so later, the tire is flat.

I'm not sure what Flat Attack would seal if it can't seal the tiny holes that the goatheads make, so I'll chalk it up to experience and I'll be sticking with Stan's and tubeless.

Strengths:    Works well for years. Easy to work with and cleans up easily. The "greenest" sealant on the market. Best sealant period.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Flat attack works great for years. No other sealant can match flat attack. Doesn't dry out or ball up. Recommend flat attack to anyone wanting a quality product. You definitely get your moneys worth with Flat attack.

Would you Pay More for a Better Tire Sealant that Outlasts Stan's?

I want to know how much it matters to people how long their sealant lasts. I know Stan's has to be replaced every 6 months or so and forms big globs in the tire and it seems like the default brand. I'm not sure how much of a hassle this for everyone or if they'd pay more or at least prefer a differe ... Read More »

Blown out tubeless Kenda Sealant compatible tire

I have the new set of 29er Mavic crossmax SLR rims, decided on kenda small block eight tubeless using sealant compatible tires. They sealed up perfectly then added the stans thru the valve core no problem, aired them up to 40 psi and all is good. I checked the air today and no air loss, yeah! So i a ... Read More »

Thoughts on a Milk Based Tire Sealant

Given all the shortcomings of Stan's and other tire sealants, I was thinking it might be possible to make a tire sealant derived from milk. Casein, which makes up 80% of milk protein is used in making industrial strength glues, and the various fats and proteins in milk seem like they could create a ... Read More »
