Just days after the announcement that Madison would also carry Maxxis the new addition compliments the tyre brand’s arrival, offering a £36.00 easy to use kit.
The milKit Tubeless Valve and Refill kit is a new technology that has been designed to solve the problem of accurately and easily managing tubeless sealant. A unique petal valve prevents clogging and accepts a syringe that can be used to extract the sealant from the tyre so riders can top it up without having to unseat the tyre or even re-use it when swapping tyres.
milKit is the brainchild of Pius Kobler, who, whilst riding in Moab Utah, found that the high temperatures and frequent punctures made the sealant in his tyres run out very quickly. It was impossible to accurately check sealant levels without removing the tyre. Kobler will be present at IceBike for those wanting to know more.
Chris Brattle, milKit brand manager at Madison, said: “We are really excited to be working with milKit as they have a seriously impressive product that is a proven solution to a real problem many cyclists don’t even realise exists. Personally I am a serial tyre and wheel swapper, so after six months of using it on all my road and mountain bikes I was keen to open a discussion with the brand. We are looking forward to representing them and educating the British public about the system which makes installing and maintaining tubeless systems a far cleaner, easier and less wasteful task.”
