    Giant Factory Sealant Question

    Hello,
    I have a 2018 Giant Trance 2 that shipped already tubeless. I have been unable to find "Giant Tubeless Sealant" anywhere to buy, including the Giant site. Does anyone know if this is just re-branded stans or orange or something else? I have heard it is bad to mix brands and I want to top off my tires.

    Any suggestions, or should I just drain the stock sealant and put in Stans? Thanks!

    Are you certain there is sealant in your tires? The bikes ship setup tubeless.... but the shop needs to add the sealant. Many do not.

    Yeah, it is for sure setup tubeless with sealant, I have seen the white spots on my tire. Didn't realize that Giant does not pre-fill them with sealant and that is done @ the shop. They do sell it in their AU store https://www.giant-bicycles.com/au/tu...nt-16oz-bottle but Can't find it here.

    I'd just throw stans on top of w/e it is. It's likely either stans or orange seal, it won't hurt to just refresh stans on top.

    Depending how long ago the sealant was installed, it's likely dried up. Six months depending on weather. Could be a couple months if it's really warm where you are.

    At any rate, if you are overly concerned of mixing products, break the bead and soak up the remainder and pour in the sealant of your choice and ride on.

    It smells, tastes, feels, looks identical to stans. even the bottles it comes in are the same. just chuck Stans in.
