Tires on Bikes: An Introduction to Tubeless Technology:

Reifen am Fahrrad: Eine Einführung in Tubeless-Technologie:

Modern technologies have revolutionized cycling, and tubeless tires are one of those innovations. Here is a detailed introduction to the benefits of tubeless technology: 

I. What are tubeless tires?

Tubeless tires are airtight tires that are used without a tube. Instead of a hose, a special sealing fluid seals small holes and cracks.

Tip: Tubeless tires can be ridden at the same pressure as tubular tires, resulting in a more comfortable ride.

II. Advantages of tubeless tires

Puncture protection: The sealant automatically repairs smaller punctures, reducing the risk of punctures.

Better Traction: Tubeless tires can be run at lower pressures, resulting in more grip and better traction, especially off-road.

Lower weight: Without a tube, tubeless tires are lighter, which has a positive effect on the overall weight of the bike.

Lower rolling resistance: Tubeless tires often have lower rolling resistance, which can lead to a more efficient ride.

III. Installation of tubeless tires

Installation requires special tubeless tires, tubeless-ready rims and sealant. Please note the following steps:

Prepare the tire and rim: Make sure that both the tire and the rim are suitable for tubeless.

Installing the tire: Place the tire on the rim and use tire levers if necessary to make the process easier.

Adding the sealant: Add the recommended amount of sealant and rotate the tire to ensure even distribution.

Inflate: Inflate the tire to the recommended pressure.

IV. Maintenance and care

Periodic Inspection: Regularly check the tire for cuts, cracks or other damage.

Refilling the sealant: Replace the sealant every few months or after major repairs.

Changing Tires: Note that tubeless tires require some special techniques when you need to replace them.

Tubeless technology offers a number of benefits for cyclists. With proper installation and regular maintenance, tubeless tires can become a reliable, low-maintenance option for all types of cyclists.
