About Tire Leakage

Why is my tire losing air?

Generally, when you first use a new tubeless, they may lose some pressure. That’s because there are often small defects in the tires that allow air to escape over time.Usually you should inflate the tires and take them on a ride, and when the wheels are being ridden, the sealant is forced into all these holes and seals the tires and sometimes it may take several rides to happen.

If your tire loses more than 10psi pressure overnight, we recommend increasing the tire pressure and riding again. This usually seals the tire.

If you can feel the air coming out of the side of the tire, please be aware of sealant leakage. Or simply found that they flatten out overnight, this means there is problem with the tire fixation. After use for a period, the sealant may kick in and seal any gaps. But this may not always be the case and the tires may need to be re-installed.

You can remove the tire and reinstall it to get a new seal. Of course, there are other possibilities for improper installation if the tire gets flat.

The following four reasons:

1.Rim tape can be disturbed during tire installation,It is usually caused by applying too much force with the tire lever. Remove the tire, clean and re-paste the rim to form a good seal. To clean the rim, use isopropyl alcohol and allow it to dry completely before pasting.

2.Your tires may be incompatible with tubeless or too tight to fit properly on the rim.

3.Your valve stems are not in place or they may be over-tightened remove the valve for closer inspection and re-attach the rim as needed.

4.There is not enough sealant. Pour more sealant through the valve or open the tire rim to pour more sealant and reinstall the tire.
