What Tubeless Tyres Do You Recommend Or Would Avoid?

Member Admin

First used in great numbers on MTBs for riding with low air pressure for better traction without getting pinch flats because there is no tube to pinch between the rim and an obstacle. Now we are seeing more road bikes and as the number of gravel bikes increases, we are seeing more riders turn to tubeless. 

Are the benefits worth the costs?

Let us know; What Tubeless Tyres Do You Recommend Or Would Avoid? Or better still what tubeless tyres and rim combination is best? 

The pro's (better puncture protection, comfort, rolling resistance and so on) 

The cons (some The tyres are a pain to fit, sealant can make a mess everywhere and the cost) 

Tubeless or tubeless-ready… there's a difference?

Tubeless tyers have a butyl lining that prevents air loss.

Tubeless-ready tyres are lightweight and leak fluid till sealed in installing. They will be marked as 2Bliss, tubeless compatible, Tubeless Easy, TLR, TL, Tubeless Complete and various other names.
