Tubeless is a blessing, and it can also be a curse. If you’ve ever had to set up a tire tubeless (and we’re guessing you have), you’ll know the wonderfully sticky mess that is tire sealant. It gets everywhere despite your best efforts and you can forget about trying to keep clean when switching tires and making the dreaded ‘Stans-fer’ sealant transfer. We won’t even get into the clogged valves.

MilKit’s valve system is a pretty radical little kit that promises to fix just about everything wrong with current valves on the market. The creators of milKit got tired of having to constantly check sealant levels, and getting sealant messes everywhere when they did. They made a valve that holds air with no valve core, which lets you check the sealant level without deflating the tire. MilKit took some unique and innovative design approaches, and when we got one of the kits in, we had to see just how easy and clean the valve system was to install and use.
