Aside from the tyre, of which there are currently only the Hutchinsons, an airtight rim and tubeless valve are all that’s needed to ditch your tubes. So with a Stan’s NoTubes conversion, tubeless doesn’t necessarily mean shelling out for new wheels.

The Stan’s bundle consists of a tough, self-adhesive tape, which replaces existing rim strips, sealing the rim. A special tubeless Presta valve is inserted through the tape and valve hole, sealing airtight against the rim strip as you tighten the nut on the threaded valve stem.
