    Stans new "race" sealant good to -30º F and for bigger holes

    This may be my new fat bike tubeless sealant if all that they claim hold true! The downside is you can only pour directly into the tire.

    NoTubes claims its new Race Sealant has twice the number of sealing crystals and includes larger crystals than its standard sealant. The company claims this gives it superior sealing power, allowing it to work quicker and to seal larger punctures.

    The latex base has a lower viscosity than the standard formula, meaning it should perform better in temperatures as low as -30F/-34C.

    But someone else try it out first please

    And I read a little further: Stan's Race Sealant - Quart
    I'm guessing with their disclaimer that it will clog all valves and injectors, that it won't be too friendly to the constant adjustment to tire pressures that fat bikes need.

    I get one thread screw up per year. This is for 2016.
    ...Be careful what you're looking at because it might be looking back...

    Yeah, nope. I am very attached to squiring fresh sealant through the valve with the core removed. It's just so much easier that way. Not going to go back to 1st gen sealant days. I'd rather dump glitter into my tire, then inject sealant later through the valve.

    regular Stans is good to -25F... so the extra -5F isn't much compared to the downsides (clogs, dries up, etc.).... I'll stick with regular.

    Glitter works well, but every time I mess with my sealant I have to explain to my wife I wasn't at the strippers

    I keep getting ridiculous coupons for Michael's, so my base ingredient stays dirt cheap.

    Usually 1 part latex mold builder, 1 part antifreeze, 1 part auto slime 1 part water. Sometimes it comes out a little thicker so I add water until it seems to approach the consistency of stans. Works just fine, been using it for a few years. Down to -20 last winter. Since you can buy all of these items in bulk, it's pretty cheap. I think this is one of the accepted "standard" DIY formulas. I mix it up in mason jars and leave it until I need it, use an old stans bottle to get it in the tires.
