It is not tubeless technology that is the problem here it is the tubeless tyre choices you are making. The marketing of these tyres though does lead you astray.
I am starting a long process of testing mamy tubeless tyres to see how long the rear last till it wears out or becomes comprised to such an extent it has to be retired.
Tyres to be tested. Mavic yskions, maxxis pardones schwalbe pro one, hutchinson sector 28's, hutchinson all season, panracers race a evo3 tyres, all the irc offerings.
It will take about a year of more.
this is the point!
Would you include the fusion 5 performance 25mm in your test?
Roni1 never did answer my question regarding which sealant he used. It's not just the tires, but you quickly learn the little nuances of which sealants and tapes work best too. For example I keep seeing people posting about Stan's, Caffe Latex, and other sealants that are not Orange Seal. The only excuse people have for not using Orange Seal is if they can't actually acquire it easily in their region. It really is that much better, and reading his original post about not getting tires to seal until they hit 30psi really makes me wonder which sealant he's been using. Even with how puncture prone Pro Ones seem to be, 4-5mm cuts do seal permanently for me without losing much psi...maybe 10psi if I pumped my tires up to max for PR attempts and 3-5psi at a more sane 70-80psi.
Tape is where I've experimented the most. Finding the best combination that adheres to carbon tire beds and stretches just the right amount has taken a year, but I've finally settled on this green powder coating tape.
About the perfect width for today's wide road rims. It's stretchier and thinner than Stan's/Tesa tape, but not too stretchy and thin like Kapton tape. It doesn't leave residue behind after removal either.
As far as tire choices go, I still won't hesitate to go with Pro Ones for training. They do puncture easily, but they seal just fine. I get more mileage out of Pro Ones other fast tubeless tires....around 2500mi. My current Zipp Tangente Speed RT25s (made by Hutchinson) might last half as long. The Zipps do seem less puncture prone, though with only 500mi on my set right now, it's probably just luck. It seems like the Hutchinson made "racy" tires like the Yksion Pro UST, Zipp Tangente Speed RT, and Hutchinson Fusion 5 Galactik just don't last very long at all. I've ordered a set of the new IRC Formula Pro Lights and the Yksion Pro UST to use as soon as I wear out the Zipps.
