TruckerCo’s Cream tire sealant is
made in the USA from a latex base and is
designed to work with any tubeless-ready
rim and tire combination. The Formula is
eco-friendly, and the product has a very
enticing price. A 1-liter bottle ( 34 fluid
ounces) sells for around $25 and comes
with an injector syringe. TruckerCo Cream
is claimed to have a higher concentration of
solid particles over most other sealants,
allowing it to seal better. TruckerCo
also claims that its Cream sealant has a lower ph level,
making it less harmful to
metals and skin.
1989 Slime sealant was a
revolutionary product designed to put an
end to flat tires. This green gooey material
known as Slime is synonymous with tire
sealant. Slime is claimed to stay in liquid
form for over six months and patch a hole
1/8-inch or 3 millimeters in diameter.
Slime claims its sealant will work well with
the freezing temperatures created by CO2
inflators, which could come in handy during
a trail-side repair. Slime can be purchased
in an 8-ounce bottle for $7.
Weapons of mass tire
destruction: Our test included
the following sharp objects to
puncture our tires. We started
with a small thumbtack, then
a nail, and then two different-sized screwdrivers.
Just a prick:
We used a small
start off our testing process. All
of the sealants
sealed this hole.
What a mess: All of the sealants we tested leaked a good
amount; however, some seemed to spray out a lot more sealant
Stepping it up: The second object we used to puncture our tires
was a nail. The nail holes managed to knock Bontrager and Effetto
Mariposa out of the running.
