Why you should go tubeless with your off road mountain bike tyres
Tubeless tyre technology has been around for a few years now, and has saved many riders from puncture nightmares, but people are still choosing to opt for standard inner tubes and then moan about their performance… so why go tubeless with your mountain bike tyres?
This article outlines the benefits of tubeless tyres, the best on the market and how you can get your hands on them with speedy next day delivery from Endurotyres.com.
What does tubeless mean?
Many mtb tyres have been tubeless for some time now and the performance levels are far more superior than when using inner tubes, plus you can use it with the excellent tyre suspension system, CushCore. Tubeless means that you’ll use a puncture-proof tyre sealant as opposed to inner tubes.
What are the benefits of tubeless technology?
Probably the main reason many of our riders are choosing to go tubeless is the fact that the number of punctures you’ll get will significantly reduce.
A lighter ride
This doesn’t take to much guesswork, but by replacing your standard inner tube with a tubeless alternative, you are taking off a fair bit of weight from your bike, and lighter bike = faster laps.
Ride on much lower PSIs
Tubeless-ready tyres allow you to ride on a much lower tyre pressure, in fact as low as 10-20 PSI, providing you with exceptional grip during your whole ride.
They’re super simple to fit
Like most things, it may take you a couple of tries to get right, but in no time at all you’ll be fitting your tubeless technology in minutes. If you do a lot of biking, you’ll be saving time as you won’t need to replace them as often as a standard inner tube, so more time on the trail. It’s a win-win!
In the long run, going tubeless will save you money
Think about all those inner tubes you’ve been buying over the years, whether you go for the most basic £10 tube or opt for the more pricey ones, chances are, if you are out and about a lot, they don’t last you that long. Whilst tubeless technology is generally more expensive, the time you will save and the number of rides you’ll get out of them will all save you ££ in the long run!
