In 2001 Stan Koziatek had an idea; frustrated with punctured inner tubes and believing mountain bike tires could perform better without them, Stan developed a way to replace inner tubes with a liquid sealant. Stan’s system created a tire that sealed itself almost instantly when punctured, but that was only the beginning. With no inner tube, tires treated with Stan’s sealant offered more traction, more control, and more comfort. They also rolled faster. The performance advantages were tremendous, and soon racers at the highest levels of the sport were asking Stan to help them go tubeless. Today, riders and racers around the world rely on the tubeless technology Stan developed, and their sealant has been honoured as one of the most important innovations in the history of cycling with Stans no Tubes established as the first name in Tubeless technology. In more recent years Stans have developed a wide range of tubeless ready rims and wheelsets featuring their patented Bead Socket Technology. We stock a wide range of Stans products to enable you to set up your bike with tubeless tyres so that you can ride more efficiently, avoid pinch flats and benefit from a sealant that prevents punctures instantly.
