Tufo Extreme Sealant seals slightly larger holes in tubes and tubular tires than the standard Tufo sealant. Unlike the standard sealant, the Extreme version is to be used only after a flat has occurred. To be used in a tire or tube with a removable presta valve core and inserted with the valve core removed. One bottle seals approximately three punctures. 50ml with valve tool.

excellent, saved a tire for me!

Had 200 miles on a Tufo s23 tubular when I got a puncture. Applied this product, and am back on the road!

To prevent solidification in bottle

To prevent premature sealant solidification in the bottle simply squeeze all the air out of the bottle before replacing the cap.

This stuff works so well I reordered it 2 times for other tires

I used the extreme sealant after trying the other guy's stuff and found it really worked on the large gashes I got in my cx tufo tires. I holds in normal cx conditions but gave out at 65 psi on the road.

Don't throw that tire out just yet!!!!

With the price of some tubulars reaching in upwards of $100.00 investing in a bottle of this sealant is a win win for anyone. You might just save that very expensive tire it takes minutes to fix a tire! I've fixed three tires this season. Oh yeah and I did it while on a ride. In a few minutes I was back on the road. If you ride tubulars your doing yourself an injustice not trying this.

Good stuff, but some problems with shelf-life

Pros Fast acting. Heavier solids work effectively against larger holes. Holds higher pressure. Included valve tool is wonderful.

Cons Solidifies in bottle over time, and no indication of shelf lifeexpirationuse by date is given on the bottle. Nozzle prone to clogs after use. Long bottle awkward fit for shorter seat bags. Will damage the finish of wooden floors.

I usually ride Tufo S33 Specials at 120 psi. They've been great, so great that when I finally did get a flat, most of the sealant (which I bought 6 months previously) had solidified inside the tube. There was still enough to do an effective job - thanks, Tufo - and the tire's still holding 120 psi after another 250 miles.

Exposure to air will solidify this stuff pretty quickly. While repairing on the road, I injected some, set the bottle aside, and inflated the tire. When I found I needed a little bit more, the stuff still inside the nozzle had solidified. Fortunately, the wire used to tie the valve tool to the bottle came in handy at reaming the nozzle out.

So I like this product, but I'd like it more if there were some sort of expiration date, which is the reason for the two stars' value rating. My next tube I'll probably seal in a zip-lock bag to add another layer of protection.

Finally, be careful of spilling this stuff on hardwood floors. If so, clean the floor immediately. Should you keep your bike indoors, put some sort of drop cloth under the repaired tire. I spilled some on a hardwood floor, found it soon afterwards, and it had already stripped the finish. That's my fault, not Tufo's, but worth knowing.

Love Tubulars, Hate Flats

I bought a bottle at my LBS, it had solidified in the bottle, but luckily there was enough liquid that I could repair the flat and get home. As another reviewer mentioned, once you patch the hole, do not inflate over 115 lbs. If the hole is bigger than 1.5mm the plug will eventually blow out, you can watch the plug grow as it exits the tire over time. Still, if you can get the sealant to take hold, you can plug the leak and get home if you don't over inflate. It takes trial and error to get used to. Repeated use will plug up your presta valve. The regular sealant is more viscous and goes in the tire easier.

Works as advertised

I just got a glass puncture today on my Conti Competition 700x23 (rear) and this stuff sealed the hole nicely. It squirted out a bit during inflation (as expected) and subsequent spinning of the tire but eventually held and I was able to continue my ride. I had 50 miles left and had only brought one CO2 cartridge but that and this sealant were enough to save the ride and apparently the tire. I won't race on it with this sealant in it but I will certainly continue to train on it as long as the tread allows.

In the last 20 years going Tufo has been my worst decision.

This product solidifies in the container and yet two weeks after apllied it's still liquid inside the tire. Usually it fails to seal the tire but when it does -if it does- it plugs it until you need to air again. A pressure of around 90 Lbs. is enough to blow that plug right out of the hole and you're back at square one. I bought about a dozen Tufos and there are about 6 with holes that range from 1 to 3mm. After spending over 50USD in this P.O.S. sealant, I am still looking for a way to fix them. The tires are good as long as you don't flat. They are xclnt on downhills and rough roads and roll nicely under high pressure. Just so long as you don't flat. Once you do you may as well forget about putting more than 80 lbs or just enough air to get you home. Unlike the old tubulars, you can't just patch them and re-sew them.

If you're an old dog like myself, you know how it feels to throw away a tire that still has lots of rubber left.It's really a waste of your money unless they can provide you with a sealant that works.

PS I recently foud out that one of the Pro Teams here in Colombia - UNE - used them for a year and canned them. Mngrs, mechanics and riders all heated them.

BikeTiresDirect.com Comments

The sealant will eventually solidy when exposed to air. If it has solidified in the bottle, this is because it has been opened, or is past its shelf-life. If you have an unopened container where the sealant has solidified and you purchased it from us, please let us know and we will replace it or refund your purchase price.

I have personally found the sealant to be very effective in the Tufo Elite Ride tires - the tires I normally ride. I generally pump these tires to 110-115 psi which I feel provides the best compromise between rolling resistance, traction, and ride quality. At these pressures, the sealant has held very well. The sealant may be less effective in lighter weight tires since the casing can be more flexible allowing the puncture hole to stretch and release sealant.

Saved many a tire for me

I switched from clinchers to tubulars several years ago after trying a friends tubular wheels and loving the ride quality and performance. I was starting to get a little frustrated throwing out good tires because of small shards of glass, wires, and thorns, until I discovered Tufo sealant. In the past two years, I've only had three flats that required a tire replacement and these were all from major cuts and punctures.

If its a larger than normal hole, I inflate the tire to about 60psi for a few minutes to let the sealant set a little, then fill the rest of the way. I generally run my tubulars at around 110psi which I think provides the best compromise between rolling resistance, traction and ride quality.

These days, I don't leave on a ride without a bottle of this sealant.

This stuff really works.

This stuff really works. I really didn't expect it to work as well as it did but it easily fixed two tires that I thought I was going to have to un-stich and patch. I really plan to buy some more.

Thanks
