    Punctures...

    Ultraseal, gimmick or useful ?

    I'm taking my 690 to Spain / France to explore some TET and although I'll be carrying spare tubes / tyre levers I am interested to know if this is a worthwhile addition as I hate fixing punctures but do so if I have to ?

    Can't see Ultraseal working very well in a tube especially if you are running lower pressures for off-roading. Have you fitted off-road heavy duty tubes?

    According to their blurb it will work with tubeless but won't be so efficient. I've decided against using heavy duty tubes as they mostly have a low speed rating and I'll still have some long road days as well, instead I'm going to use pure rubber tubes made by Motoz from Adventure Spec, bit more expensive but they do get brilliant reviews for durability.

    So I'd probably be looking at this one seeing that I'll also probably have to do around 1400 road miles..
