No tubes. SchwalbeTubeless Ready tires make it possible. With three advantages - weight, puncture protection and low rolling resistance.
What you will need:
- Tubeless wheel
- 60 ml Doc Blue Professional
- Schwalbe Tubeless Ready tire with special bead shape
- And a modicum of patience and experience in fitting
Of course the tires can be used quite normally with a tube.
SnakeSkin tires are the best suited for tubeless conversion! The sidewalls seal almost immediately, Already half the quantity of sealing fluid is is usually enough! Just about compensating for the extra weight of the SnakeSkin sidewall - and furthermore it is additional protection against sharp rocks.
The new wheel size is now fully established. Larger wheels bring better performance! Anywhere the 29" wheel size is too large, e.g. smaller frame sizes and bikes with a lot of travel, the in-between 27.5'' size is the best call.
The tire bead is specially coated with a rubber mixture that reduces the risk of the tire slipping around the rim.
