We have these handy tire powder kits imported direct from the Panaracer factory in Hyogo, Japan. Being in the tire business, the engineers at Panaracer took the time to develop the proper powder to be used on your tire casing to prevent friction between tire and tube. Reducing friction greatly improves ride quality and reduces flats.
Use this once and you will never use baby powder or caustic talking powder again - these powders are messy and clump in the casing when they get wet. Installation normally leaves powder all of the place and all over your hands, tires and tubes. Those days are now over.
Due to the special formula, very small amounts of the powder is needed to get the job done. The canister comes with a lid that has small holes in it and a blue sponge-like adhesion pad. Simply put the pad on the lid, turn upside down to fill the pad with powder. Then take the pad and rub on the powder to the inside casing of the tire. It is a clean and simple operation that makes a tremendous difference. The Panaracer Tire Powder comes in a 50 gram canister and provides enough powder for many tires. If you ride on a decent quality tire and wheelset, do yourself a favor and get a canister of this powder.
Gets the job done when talc and a paper towel won't, I guess. Wickid good stuff!!!!!
Guess I really never knew that I needed it untill I saw it on Excels website. Works great and makes tire install happen with less effort (friction). Recommended
Pros: Works as advertised
