    Heck yeah! The Hutchinson sealant is only for use in UST tires as a flat preventative. It is not a latex based product. Claims to last 2 years. It was developed and produced by a company that has been making tires and other rubber products for around 100 years so there should be no issues with it harming the tire in long-term use.

    Both of my LBSs have it

    Any LBS that stocks Hutchinson tires should have it. $17.99/bottle. BTW, my Spider MRC High USTs (2.3) are coming in this week--report later.

    I was wondering the same thing, I run Hutchinson Tubeless Light tires (Spider front Bulldog rear) and for now I put a scoop of stan's as the lighter casing might be easier to puncture but I think I'd feel better to use the stuff made and suggested by the same company... especially with the recent 'stan's-induced-rubber-meltdown' issues...

    Anybody tried the stuff yet?
