    Tires - Liners vs Kevlar tubes

    What do you guys use to prevent flats? I'm about to do an upgrade of slime tubes with a liner seperately installed. The wife said her bike has Kevlar lined tubes with slime. I've never heard of those, but maybe that's a few grades above what I'm doing.

    What have y'all found that works?

    Since I've gone tubeless with sealant I can't remember the last time I got a flat. I run Stan's Arch ex rims with tubeless ardents. It's an investment for next level riding for sure but it was damn with it IMO.

    Tubeless with sealant, and no flats??? I'm trying to process this. Is the tire Kevlar lined, or does the sealant just work that quick?

    Kinda both - most tubeless ready tires have a Kevlar bead. Unless you get a pretty largish hole or gash (over 1/8"), the sealant plugs the hole. You might need to add air depending on how long it takes it to seal. Thorns and such seal instantly, so no flats.
