Plus size tubeless happiness: 29“ tubeless wheels
It’s no secret that mountain bikes have been in love with 29" wheels for quite a while now. More recently, they have also developed a soft spot for everything tubeless. After disc and boost, tubeless is the next standard to conquer the hearts of MTBs and their riders. The reasons for this are rather practical than romantic. Tubeless tyres offer more puncture safety, even with low air pressure. Thus, traction is tremendously increased! Snakebites and small punctures are no longer a worry. If the rim is tubeless ready, all you need is a special rim tape
, a tubeless valve
(which will usually come with the tyre) and a tyre sealant
. In the end, tubeless bike tyres
are particularly airtight clinchers. Convert to tubeless and enjoy the carefree rides with your 29" wheels on almost any kind of terrain!
