Price – $159.95

TUbliss is an amazing system that eliminates the need for an inner tube in your tube-type rim, allowing the use of tubeless repair kits on the run, protecting your rim more than a regular tube and allowing you to run a lower tyre pressure off road for increased footprint and traction. The TUbliss system comprises of a thin 100psi inner seal that locks the bead of your tyre against the rim bead with 100psi of pressure, sealing it completely. You can then adjust the outer pressure to suit, creating a tubeless effect. The TUbliss system works with standard tyres and rims, saves unsprung weight and will increase your off-road enjoyment through better traction, improved handling and, as a huge bonus, save skinned knuckles – no more tubes!
