The milKit system was devised in Switzerland after a mountain bike ride in Moab, USA was cut short due to a flat tyre and dried-out sealant. A simple puncture that would easily have sealed, had the sealant still been effective. This is a problem that anyone used to riding tubeless will understand.
The founder, product development engineer and mountain biker Pius Kobler decided to solve this problem and invented milKit. Together with a team of biking enthusiasts and experienced entrepreneurs Pius founded the company Sport Components Ltd. Their aim is to ease the everyday lives of mountain bikers, cyclists and other athletes with innovative products, and to become a leading provider of smart bicycle solutions.
Sport Components Ltd went to crowdfunding site Indegogo in 2016 with the first product, the innovative valve and syringe system. They blew through their $25k funding target in a month, with hundreds of cyclists keen to solve a universal problem.
Not content to rest on their laurels, the next product, the milKit Booster for more efficient tire inflation, won a Eurobike Award in september 2019.
milKit products make your tubeless life easier.
milKit’s award winning products make life easier for mountain bikers and road cyclists. Mounting and running tubeless tires is now easier than ever before as milKit have developed ways to simplify installation and maintenance.
If you are fed up with removing your tire to check sealant, then milKit will make life easier and quicker. Or, if like milKit founder Pius Kobler in Moab, you run the risk of riding with no sealant left when you need it, milKit is the solution you need.
The milKit valve and syringe system means less mess as tires are installed dry, and there is no need to remove them to check if enough sealant remains. The booster offers more efficient inflation, and negates the need for a costly, voluminous air compressor. milKit sealant offers superior sealing capabilities and is longer lasting than competitors.
The products are space saving, time saving, multi-purpose, efficient, and more environmentally friendly, as well as being highly effective in sealing punctures out on the trail.
Less time fettling, more time riding.
