Ad is for a Tubliss kit 18" & 21" includes. Inner Bladder - Outer Sheath - Rim Lock - Rubber Spacer - Rim Tape. It's not about going tubeless for the sake of eliminating tubes. It's all about the countless benefits of going TUbliss® that makes every rider and racer better, faster, and more in control.TUbliss® is, essentially, a high pressure rim lock and seal that secures the entire tire bead to the rim, completely eliminating the use of a conventional tube. TUbliss® allows you to run a low tire pressure (as low as 10 psi) which dramatically improves traction; especially important for enduro and baja racing. Since there's no conventional tube, the days of pinched tubes and flats are over! Even if you get a tire puncture, the bead stays seated to the rim. The 100 psi TUbliss® inner bladder literally clamps the entire bead and side wall of the tire to the rim, providing full bead lock performance around the full circumference of the rim. The seal is formed against the inside of the tire itself, not the rim, so it holds the tire firmly and makes the sidewalls stay upright and absorb the full impact, unlike bending and deflection you get with conventional tubes. Because of the design, TUbliss® will even work with the most dented, dinged, or tweaked rim. TUbliss® secures the bead so securely that it allows a low tire pressure for improved straight line traction without the risk of a pinch flat or tire bead slippage. Because Tubliss® means you can much lower tire pressures, traction is improved which is especially important for Baja and Enduro riders. You have no tubes to be concerned with, so lower pressure with Tubliss® means you'll never pinch a tube! Replace old technology with a stronger, modern and efficient system. TUbliss® really is virtually flat proof when used with a tire sealant. Sealants can't work on tubes where holes in the rubber stretch and tear. With TUbliss®, your sealant works directly on the tire where it matters. Plus, the design of TUbliss® helps keep the tire seated on the bead and the sidewalls more stable, virtually making "flat wobbles" a thing of the past.
Riders have reported riding longer and harder, completely unaware that they had a tire puncture. TUbliss® also provides a weight savings of up to 3 pounds per wheel which instantly translates into less rotating weight and increases acceleration. Less unsprung weight allows significant suspension performance gains. Experts say that eliminating a pound of rotating unsprung weight is equivalent to dropping 5 pounds of static weight!
Without the weight and friction of a conventional tube installed, tire temperatures are greatly reduced. This also eliminates tire pressure increases during the course of a moto. TUbliss protects the rim from dings and dents by holding the tire firmly and making the sidewalls stay upright and absorb the full impact, unlike bending and deflection of conventional tubes.
How much lighter are they then tubes? 2.5 Pounds lighter then heavy duty tubes and approximately 14 ounces lighter that stock tubes. Tube thickness and weights vary from manufactures. It's important to note that for every pound you can lose of rotating unsprung weight is equivalent to dropping 5 pounds of static weight!How long does TUbliss last? A VERY LONG TIME, (maybe too long) we say they last 10-20 times longer than tubes. However in 5 years of testing hundreds of them, we have yet to wear ANY out. Can I use a tire sealant in the tire with TUbliss?
For off-road situations or when you are concerned with punctures, we highly recommend the use of a sealant in your tire. With the tire being tubeless, tire sealants work AWESOME because there is substantially thicker rubber for it to clog up and be effective. Your tire is reinforced, so a hole does NOT stretch like a conventional tube.
Again it works very well in a tubeless situation. How hard is it to install & change tires? Installing the TUbliss CORE on the rim should take under 10 minutes (including drilling the 10mm hole for the New rim lock).After that, everyone that had tried it agrees that changing tires is MUCH easier. IT IS DIFFERENT, BUT EASIER, SO READ & FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!
Because you don't have to worry about damaging an inner-tube with the tire irons, you can just go at it and get'er done! Does the black tube really squeeze in between the liner and that black stem thing? It's common to assume that the black inner tube floats freely inside the liner, but that is wrong. During installation, yes, you fit the inner tube so it's pressed between the red liner and the black rubber housing for the rim lock stem. It's rubber and pneumatic, so yes, it can be punctured.
But know that this is VERY RARE. The outer cover is 3mm thick and the tube is 2.2mm thick, so it's thick & tough. In the last 4 years of testing we have only punctured ONE!
It's leaking bubbles around the valve stem! This is the most common probem associated with installation.
It's an easy fix. First, bubbles around the valve stem are normal for the first 10 minutes or so after initial installation. However, if they persist, here's the problem and solution. The problem most likely originates from the Inner Liner not being correctly positioned on the rim caused by hanging up on a dry spot.To resolve, deflate both the tire and the TUbliss Inner Liner, but do not loosen the rim lock! Next, apply some more soapy water around the lip of the rim and push the tire bead down so the water can seap in and cover the rim and Inner Liner. Do this for both sides, re-inflate and see if that solves your problem. The Nuetech TUbliss (pronounced Tubeless) tire system is a winner of an idea. You may remember Nuetech's unusual bent handlebar end pieces. The MXA wrecking crew wasn't totally enamored with Nuetech's A.
Bar ends, but we absolutely love their latest creation-the TUbliss tire system. Tubeless motocross tires have been around for 20 years (on works bikes), but they have never seen the cash register side of a motorcycle shop.
Making a tubeless motocross tire was too complicated. It required a special rim (to keep the air lock tight), a rubber sealing bladder (to eliminate leakage around the spoke nipples) and messy sealant (to keep sidewall flex from burping air pressure).The problem areas were so numerous that most companies shelved the idea of tubeless motocross tires-except for Nuetech! Here's a list of things that stand out with Nuetech's TUbliss tire system. Jeff Douglas solved the problems that stymied Dunlop by applying innovative thinking.
Instead of using a special rim, rubber bladder and tacky sealant, the TUbliss tire system makes any existing rim and tire combination tubeless without all the extra foof. In the simplest terms, instead of trying to seal the rim to keep air in the tire, Nuetech sealed the gap between the two tire beads with a special rubber inner liner (which is a fancy way of saying bicycle tire). By putting a one-off bicycle tire in the center of the rim and inflating it, the gap at the bottom of the tire is sealed, making the tire an airtight chamber (sans a tube).
It turns the outer tire into the motocross equivalent of a bicycle's tubular sew-up tire. This is a great idea for three reasons: first, without a tube inside the tire, the Nuetech-equipped wheel is 1-1/2 pounds lighter than a stock wheel.
Saving a pound and a half of rotating, unsprung weight is awesome, phenomenal and unbelievable. Second, even if you get a sidewall tear, you can ride the Nuetech TUbliss tire flat.We raced a full moto on a flat tire. Although the bike didn't handle very well, we finished the moto with the tire on the rim. Third, without the weight and friction of the tube rubbing against the tire carcass, tire temperatures were greatly reduced (which means that tire pressure doesn't increase as much during the course of a moto). There aren't any downsides on the track. Every test rider commented on how responsive the suspension and engine were with 1-1/2 pounds removed from the rear wheel.
When you add the performance advantages to the lighter weight, run-flat capabilities and heat reduction, you have a product that should be on every race bike in America. There is a learning curve to mounting the TUbliss tire system, but it is easily mastered.Over a three-month period, we ran three sets of TUbliss tires and never had a problem.
