DO I HAVE TO USE ENVE RIM TAPE AND THE PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE STEM NUT?


THE SHORT ANSWER IS YES.

Not using ENVE Tape, Valve / Pressure Relief Nut can cause damage and frustration when using ENVE’s Tubeless System.

From the beginning, ENVE has been a proponent of tubeless rim and tire technologies. We believe in the benefits of tubeless, namely, the ability to achieve optimal traction through lower tire pressures and the increased flat protection that comes with tubeless systems. At the heart of a good tubeless experience is the seal between tire and rim that in ENVE’s case is provided by tubeless rim tape.

WHY DOES RIM TAPE MATTER?

The primary purpose of tubeless rim tape is to seal off the spoke access holes which in turn allows for a sealed air chamber. The rim’s bead seat diameter along with tubeless tire sealant then carry the responsibility for locking the tire onto the rim and ensuring that any porosities are sealed. Tape therefore must be the right size, the right material, and correctly installed.
