What requirements must the optimum wheel for Schwalbe tubeless road bike tires meet?
To the requirements >>
The tubeless experts. Since 2002.
We have believed in tubeless technology right from the beginning - putting a lot of pioneering research and development into this area. Now we are convinced: Tubeless is the tire technology of the future! This is true for mountain and gravel bikes and especially for road bikes.
Road bike tubeless is extremely demanding technology. It takes a great deal of expertise to develop and manufacture high-pressure tubeless tires at an excellent level. We have been backing tubeless tires for road bikes since 2002. That commitment was rewarded with victory for the Schwalbe Pro One as the Tour Magazine (Tour 6/18) test winner, as well as for triathlon world championship title holder, Ironman Patrick Lange.

As experts in tubeless technology, we work hand in hand with wheel and rim manufacturers as well as industry committees. We check the compatibility of wheels, rims and tires at our in-house test center. The results are summarized in the compatibility overview. If a wheel or rim is missing from the overview, we would be happy to hear about it at firstname.lastname@example.org

Fit the tire as usual onto the rim. Be cautious when applying the tire levers. Important: Apply assembly liquid to both tire beads before inflating (1). Make sure the valve is between the beads when inflating (2). Start inflating with apowerful burst of air (track pump or compressor) (3). The tire engages audibly on the rim. Using the rim line, make sure the tire is properly in place (4).
Deflate the tire a little. Remove the valve core (valve key is supplied with Doc Blue) and fill in 60 ml of the puncture protection liquid Doc Blue (5). For road bike tubes 30 ml are enough.
Strictly observe the indications regarding maximum inflation pressure of tire and rim!
Do not use CO2 cartridges.
CO2 has a negative effect on the puncture protection liquid.
Be careful in general when using the sealing liquid.
It easily causes stains on clothing or pieces of furniture.

These Tubeless valves are made of aluminum and are very light. In black-anodized they look very sleek on any rim. The conical valve base works universally and will fit in most rims.
If these valves do not work in some rare cases then it’s best to use the valves provided by the wheel manufacturer.

Ideally suited for Tubeless conversions. Produced by Stan’s NoTubes! It can also be used as a puncture preventative for bicycle tubes, tubular tires and standard Tubeless systems.

500 ml bottle, Art.-No. 3711
Dose: 60 ml/tire (Race bike 30 ml). Effective ca. 2-7 Months. Thereafter dries to a rubber film. Can be renewed. Only suitable for tubes with a removable valve core. Ineffective on large defects (cuts/bursts).
Our hints:Check tire pressure and sealant regularly. Depending on the weather conditions and mileage, the durability of the sealant varies and the safety factor shrinks.
Our formula for stressless riding: Refill every month with approx. 10 ml sealant through the valve, so there is no need to demount the tire.
The tubeless rim tape is extremely user friendly and at the same time very high pressure resistant. Even on road bikes a single ply of tape is sufficient.

Makes changing tires a snap. The new shape and surface of the tire lever makes the assembly and disassembly of a tire more enjoyable. For both tires and hands too!
The new tire levers are especially helpful in difficult assembly operations. Clip it onto the rim, to fix the already mounted section of the tire, and it won‘t slide out when the last section is levered onto the rim.

The easy way to inflate tubeless tires. With the new TIRE BOOSTER from Schwalbe, tubeless tire assembly can be accomplished easily. Even without a compressor. With a power of up to eleven bar every tire immediately seats itself safely on the rim and seals everything evenly. If you need an even bigger flow of air, a special adapter is also available. The 435 g light, handy cylinder is the perfect remedy for every tubeless tire assembly, whether at home or on your trips.
