Tubeless setup deals: our picks
Muc-Off Rim Tape 25mm 10m
Available in variety of widths to suit road, gravel and MTB rims, I've selected the 25mm width here as its a good fit for the wider internal rims found on many of today's all-road and gravel wheelset.
There are many rim tapes to choose from but Muc-Off's is plenty stretchy making it easy to fit, as well as being semi-transparent so you can easily locate the valve hole.
Orange Seal Versa tubeless valves
The US deal is for 44mm length valves only, while the UK offer is across a range of sizes. Each kit comes with two valves, two different rubber bases or grommets, extra valve cores, and a valve removal tool. The Versa valves' large base allows for the use of different sized grommets to create an airtight fit across different rim profiles.
Muc-Off V2 tubeless valves
If you have deeper section rims, then the V2's on offer here come in 60mm (US) and 80mm (UK) lengths. Each kit includes two aluminum Presta valves, two valve caps, two locking nuts, a valve core removal tool and three pairs of rubber bases for size choice.
Silca Ultimate Tubeless Sealant
The US deal is for the 8oz bottle, while the UK deal is for the 16oz. Either way, you're getting a premium product that won our test for the best tubeless sealant against some stiff competition.
Topeak Tubi Master+ Compact Repair Kit
When you've set up your tubeless tires you'll want to make sure you can make repairs when out riding. This all-in-one tubeless tyre repair kit and CO2 inflator from Topeak only weighs 180g but contains a tire reamer, a serrated knife, plug insertion tools, repair plugs and a CO2 inflator - and it can be mounted to your bike frame too.
Vision Team 35 Disc wheelset
If you also need a set of tubeless-ready road wheels to complete your conversion, then the Team 35s from Vision are a steal. They feature 35mm deep rims, which makes them adaptable, and are compatible with thru-axle road frames.
