TUBELESS SETUP

No-brainer added performance

Not only does it mean fewer punctures ruin your day, but it also means you can enjoy increased grip and reduced weight too. Around 95% of Intense customers choose to add tubeless setup on the cart page – here's why.

WHY GO TUBELESS?

If you're not up to speed with exactly what a tubeless setup is, it's the process of replacing a traditional inner tube with sealant that creates an airtight seal between tyre and rim. There are loads of benefits to going tubeless, so let's dive right in.

First and foremost, a tubeless setup will virtually eliminate pinch punctures as there's no tube inside the wheel to get caught when the tyre compresses against the rim on a hard hit.

Because of this, there's no need to up the tyre pressure in the name of inner tube preservation meaning you can safely run lower tyre pressures. This will in turn maximise your grip thanks to the tyre being able to deform over the trail's terrain.

Aside from pinch protection, tubeless will also give you an advantage when it comes to thorns, sharp flint or other trail debris that would normally have you reaching for a spare tube. When thorns attack, the sealant in the tyre will rush to fill the cavity, sealing the hole with almost zero air loss.

In fact, in our experience, depending on the location of the puncture as well as the tyre itself, sealant regularly guards against much bigger cuts with even 5-6mm gouges healing without drama.

Finally, the performance-conscious rider can enjoy a lighter setup thanks to the lack of a tube, giving a marginal gain in competition.
