Leverage The Power Of Recycled Carbon Fiber

SILCA Ultimate Tubeless Sealant uses the power of a foaming latex formula combined with chopped carbon fibers to boost sealing power even at higher pressures. Ultimate Tubeless Sealant contains 5% by volume, 6, 9, and 12mm chopped carbon fibers which have been reclaimed from recycled bicycles, carbon wheels, race cars, and aircraft components.

A unique foaming latex formula allows for the very lightweight carbon fibers to be evenly dispersed within the sealant while riding, which allows for a higher fiber content than possible with Kevlar or fiberglass.

Bundles of recycled carbon fiber are carried directly to the puncture by the sealant flow where thousands of micro-bubbles collapse on each other, depositing their high stiffness carbon fibers over the puncture forming a seal. During this process, the carbon fibers form a dam of fibers against the tire casing not unlike a beaver dam of sticks blocking the flow of a stream. This dam of high stiffness/high strength fibers has been shown to seal holes in testing up to 7.5mm, some 25% larger than conventional sealant technologies.

One thing to note is that Silca's Ultimate Sealant must be poured into the tire during tire install. Because of the high carbon fiber content, Ultimate Tubeless Sealant will plug any syringe or valve hole you try to pump it through.

Features:

  • The sealing power of a race-specific formula with the longevity of long-lasting formulas
  • Seals up to 25% larger punctures than conventional sealant technology
  • FiberFoam Technology uses a blend of 6mm, 9mm, and 12mm long carbon fibers which are 400% stiffer than glass fibers with better dispersion through the sealant
  • Effective down to 10°F / -12°C
  • 32oz replacement size

    Mixed thoughts, possibly a race only sealant

    Set this sealant up this summer on a pair of Zipp 303s wheels and Cannonball tires for training. Used 3oz sealant. After three weeks of use, mostly hot weather rides, likely 300 miles on the wheels I wanted to see how the sealant was doing as there where reports of it drying up fairly quickly and the carbon shreds clumping. Sure enough the sealant was almost completely dry and the carbon shreds where clumped up in 5-6 balls adhering to the tire. These where rides in Kansas, with heat approximately 90-100 degrees. Wheels stored in house otherwise.

    Decided to then use this on my race setup and assess one week later. Now on my 303 firecrests, continental terra speed tires with 2.5oz sealant. One week later and less than 200 miles of riding the sealant was not diminished but there was some clumping, but nothing significant. I decided to go ahead and complete a race with this sealant and setup the tires two days before. I really like the theory of the sealant and I think it could work very well in its current iteration as a race day sealant.

    It does clump some around my valve stem in the wheel and when you pour this sealant into the tire I would suggest pouring it quickly as the carbon shreds tend to settle quickly and adhere to the bottom of the cup.

    I really like Silca products, huge fan of their podcast and own many of their products. I think right now this is a great race week sealant but otherwise there is only downside when compared to Orange Seal. Review wise this is hard because to be an ultimate sealant it needs to not be limited to race specific applications. If this was sold as a race week sealant I would give it 5 stars but alas that is not how the product has been marketed.

    Seems to be an Excellent Sealant

    Being a new product, there were limited reviews out there. But my go-to product - the CaffeLatex sealant - was out of stock everywhere and I've already tried nearly all of the rest of the sealants out there and not liked various aspects of them: they clot up into rubber marbles (common), they don't seal well (common), or in one case, caused the tire to start weeping sealant (very bizarre). There are definitely a lot of subpar sealants out there that tout themselves as being the best (not). I'm an off-road endurance cyclist (mtb, gravel) now focused on just gravel riding, training, events.

    THIS product - the Silca Ultimate Sealant - seems like a good product, and Silca doesn't ever make garbage products. It is a little quirky to install, since the size of its clotting fibers require pouring the liquid into tire vs my usual injecting it via the valve. Easy to make a latex mess when pouring, just requires care and attention to detail.

    Performance so far: I'm only 2 months into usage and I have not re-opened the tire to examine for rubber marbles/clots. No leaks so far but no punctures detected, so its sealing performance is unknown. However, no issues with sealant seepage via the sidewalls or leaking around the bead.

    We are heading into goathead thorn season in a month, so we'll see how both the tires and sealant handle them.
