Does anyone know which is the best Puncture proof sealant?

Hi, I'm new here so not sure if anyone can help.

I've just recently bought a new mountain bike and since I live near country side I seemed to get a lot of punctures. I tried repairing it with kits but nothing does the job more than a week. I've tried Slime already but it didn't last for long.

Now I've come across Eco Tyre Saver on www.ecotyresaver.co.uk , it claims to puncture proof any bikes for permanent after using it once. Has anyone tried this out and does it really work?

If it does work then brilliant! my problem will be solved.

I would go with tire liners (Mr. Tuffy is a popular brand). They will stop the majority of punctures without putting a bunch of crap in your tubes.

same

all those glue in your tires work just about the same...youll still be screwed with even with just a moderate piece going through

Tire liners are great and all but mr tuffys are not the way to go unless you are willing to trim them up to avoid overlapping itself as that interface seems to cause flats.

I am not sure why there is so much animosity towards tire goop. Everyone in SW USA uses it. I use TrueGoo and really like. The key to having a successful time with it is to use it in schrader tubes or presta valve tubes with a removable core. You also might want to look into a tire with a kevlar belt in addition. Most people here use 2 types of flat protection.

Hi, Thanks for the advice everyone.

I still went ahead and bought the Eco Tyre Saver. I rang the number on 0845 313 8681 and told them I saw it advertised at 4.95 as a promotion, normally it costs 9.95.

I used this over a week ago and have not yet experience a puncture. Unlike Slime where it is used to go point A to B, the Eco Tyre Saver has lasted me all this time and it claims to do this for the remaining life of my tyre.
