timeless quality

Nothing has ever replaced this basic rim tape. Plastic rim tape tends to shift exposing the edges of spoke holes causing flats. That is not to say this tape doesn't at times shift, but not like others. Had one actually shift, but easy enough to shift back unlike plastic tape.

Velox Rim Strip is a must
by Bob K

Started to use Velox Rim Strip years ago when I was getting flats on my new road bike. Ever since then no flats. Paired up with Continental Gator Skins I have enjoyed flat free rides.

This tape worked perfectly
by MJBurman

I replaced my tubes & tires, so I decided to replace the rubber rim strip with a cloth rim strip. I got rid of any possibility of a leak caused by a spoke rubbing against the tube.

Does not seem to stick initially but in fact sticks quite well while enables adjustments to have it perfectly centered

not the lightest, but if you are having problems with your tubes flatting from the inside of your wheels (not tire punctures but ribbing expanding into spoke holes).

This stuff will fix it!

I keep extra rolls of it in in lots of sizes because it is so handy, after a few years of riding a new wheelset, you will need this stuff.

Quality Heavy Cloth With Strong Adhesive
by Sonoranbird
Casual Cyclist
Ajo, AZ
2 of 2 customers found this review helpful.

The two bikes I purchased for strengthening my arthritic knee came with a very light weight rubbery plastic rim strip which I knew in time would cause a tube to blow out. And because like most bicyclists, I do not enjoy needlessly repairing flats or replacing tubes, I got the Velox rim strip to replace the factory strip. Velox really shouldn't be called a strip, but a cloth tape, and the cloth is very heavy and it has a strong adhesive, so once installed, it isn't going to move.

The Solution for Latex Tubes

Tried to install latex tubes with OEM rim tape, but that was not successful. Talked with customer service and their recommendation was to use Velox Rim strip.

Received it a few days latter, installed on the wheels in a snap. Problem solved, tubes are doing well and love the ride.

Easy to use
by Christov10

Some easy to use tube insurance. I applied this ribbon of cloth tape to Mavic Ksyrium Elite rim on my '07 Jamis Supernova. Never'd used tape on these rims previously and thought it couldn't hurt. Sticky-side sticks as expected, width just fine for the application.

This is the best. It doesn't wear out or slip for years. It'll protect the tube from any sharp spoke ends.

Qulaity product, great for high pressure clinchers
by Jeremy

2 of 2 customers found this review helpful.

I bought this tape because my hybrid rims came with a flimsy rubber rim strip the stretched and let the tube enter the spoke holes and pop. I got the 22mm width which was a tad too wide for my hybrid rims, but it doesn't interfere with the bead. I've rised the pressure more with these to 100psi, no signs of ever failing! This rim tape is a must for any tire with deep spokeholes in aero rims, or anybody tired of inferior rim tape popping tubes.

This is one of the best rim tapes on the market. I have been using it for years as my go to tape. I work on many of the bikes in my club and always keep a couple of extra rolls on hand. I have seen many other brands of tape roll or slip out of place. I replace it with this tape and know I will never have a problem with it ever again.
