Rim tape options


Do you stock Velox rim tape?

No — it may be heresy but I don’t recommend cloth tape like Velox. As a dealer I know customers are concerned about tire mounting difficulty. A thin tape not only weighs less but its lower profile leaves more room in the rim well for tire beads. The result: easier tire mounting. I use Stan’s because they were the first and their tape works tubeless too.
