Rim Tape for 26" Tower eBike Rims

0 review(s)

Rim tape, often confused with tire liner, is a necessity on bikes to keep your rims from damaging your bike inner tube. Rim tape is the protective sleeve that ensures the bike inner tube does not rub on the tire rim and pop. In short it is the separating sleeve between the bike inner tube and the bike rim. Bike rims often have many holes and openings in them which can act as sharp vantage points that can pop a tires inner tube if not properly protected with rim tape.

Rim Tape

Rim tape, often confused with tire liner, is a necessity on bikes to keep your rims from damaging your bike inner tube. Rim tape is the protective sleeve that ensures the bike inner tube does not rub on the tire rim and pop. In short it is the separating sleeve between the tire tube and the bike rim. Bike rims often have many holes and openings in them which can act as sharp vantage points that can pop a tires inner tube if not properly protected with rim tape. These holes in the bike rim are for both aerating the tire, making it less heavy, and easier access to spoke nipples.

Types of Bike Rim Tape

There are a few different types of rim tape on the market, and it's important to know what each type offers in terms of protection and build.

Rubber Rim Tape: Made from durable rubber material. Cheaper, likely to last longer, but offer less guaranteed protection.

Fabric Rip Tape: In our opinion, the best rim tape option on the market. One side is strong adhesive tape, while the other is a soft fabric. Less likely to slip and expose the tire tube to the rim and cause a flat.

Tubeless Rim Tape: Essential for tubeless bike tires. This rim tape is only recommended on tubeless bikes as it gives the tire a airtight seal. Because tubeless tires don't have a tube to hold or inflate the air within the tire, the rim tape on tubeless tires needs to be extremely sturdy to not leak air out.
