SCT tire

TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2012

Sealant Compatible tire can be considered a cross between tube type and UST type tires. When used with a liquid sealant, SCT tires form an air tight seal, similar to the UST tire, but can be used on almost all bicycle rims. SCT tires have an additional layer of material built into the casing of the tire that allows it to be compatible with the various chemicals in liquid sealants. However, this material is thinner and lighter than its UST counterpart. The benefits of SCT tires, when used with sealant, include allowing the rider to use lower air pressure as well as to take full advantage of the liquid sealant to seal up most punctures or cuts.
