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.

Tubeless advantages

  • Less rolling resistance. This crucially reduces the rolling resistance. It is even lower than in super-light competition tires.
  • More grip. Lower air pressure increases the contact patch. This brings noticeable advantages in comfort, but also significantly more grip and control in critical situations and on rough trails.
  • High puncture safety. Sudden loss of air through bursting tubes or valve tear off is impossible. At the same time puncture protection liquid seal punctures within a few tenths of a second whilst riding.

TUBELESS EASY
with MicroSkin

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.

  • MicroSkin envelops the entire carcass and facilitates smooth Tubeless Easy operation even for high-pressure tyres.
  • Tubeless tyres for racing bikes, cross bikes and touring bikes are considerably lighter and also faster.
  • And on a side note, MicroSkin also improves the cut resistance.

SICHER IM BETRIEB,
EINFACH IN DER MONTAGE

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 tubelesskombi@schwalbe.com

MTB EVO

  • The monofile SnakeSkin fabric on the side wall makes the tubeless conversion for the MTB extremely easy and safe. It also provides the best cut protection on the side wall.
  • For this reason, Tubeless Easy with SnakeSkin comes as standard with our high-end MTB tyres in our EVOLUTION Line.
  • Extra stable tire core for secure seating on the rim.

TUBELESS READY

MTB PERFORMANCE

  • Extra-strong bead cores, with rubber reinforced sidewalls.
  • Tubeless conversion for our Performance MTB Tires

TUBELESS EASY
with MicroSkin or Snakeskin

  • MicroSkin (up to 50mm tire width) or SnakeSkin (from 50mm tire width) cover the entire carcass and enable Tubeless Easy operation.
  • Tubeless tires for cross, gravel and touring bikes are much lighter and faster.
  • The MicroSkin and SnakeSkin provide high and maximum cutting protection respectively for the side walls.

TUBELESS FITTING – EASIER THAN YOU’D THINK!

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.

TUBELESS-VALVES

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.

Doc Blue Professional

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.

60 ml bottle, Art.-No. 3710
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.

Tubeless Rim Tape

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.

Tire Lever

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.

Tire Booster

The easy way to inflate tubeless tires.

With the new TIRE BOOSTER, 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.
