OK, so tubeless sealant eats Kendas, right?

Anyone know how fast? Thinking I might have a play around once I fix my back wheel... Just wondering if the tyre will melt faster than it wears out :lol:

  • dunno about that combo but there are known compatibility issues between Stans and Schwalbe tyres which I find wierd as I've been using Stans in my nobby nic front tyre for the last year with (fingers crossed) no noticable effect (beyond no more punctures) so far.

    why not email Kenda and ask them?

    ... or being punched by it, depending on the day
  • Kenda tyres come with a big disclaimer,on the card warning,against using any sealant.

    Because they write DON'T **** ABOUT WITH SEALANT on the tyre packaging :lol: So there's their answer. But I know people have used it succesfully, for a while at least. Te question's just how long really.

    I've decided to sacrificie a nearly-worn-out Blue Groove to the gods of tubeless and see what it does. I'm secretly hoping it melts and dribbles over the floor :lol:

    I take it you're using someone else's floor :twisted:

    Nah, my garage floor is now 99% spilled paint, ancient dried in oil, dropped bolts and Mystery Stains. I'm going for the last 1%.
