Competitor ActivityStans for sale in bike shopPoll QuestionsAll booth visitors were asked, Do you ride tubeless or tubed tires?Around 90% of riders polled rode tubeless. The majority of tubed riders were either too young or too old to race. High number of tubeless riders could be attributed to the rocky course which is famous for causing pinch flats.Conversation Notes/TestimonialsCreated buzz for Slime Pro. Day 3: I heard great things about your new tubeless sealant, wanted to check it out! Owner, Castro Valley Cycles We need Big Airs! Racers need something that can inflate a full sized mountain tire and the 20g wont do it. Multi-tool tire irons are great for racers, too Mackie Franklin, 4th place XC racer.Slime Pro works way better than Stans! Check out this cut on my sidewall it sealed! Riley Howard, 20, Racer, Team Santa Cruz/ X-Fusion I use Slime in all my bikes in Texas. There are thorns everywhere, I wont ride without Slime!
