More Grip, More Grins
Enhanced grip and handling with tubeless tires
Enhanced grip and superior cornering are where tubeless tires truly shine. They make you feel like a superhero on those bends (but remember, capes are still a no-go for safety!). This really comes in handy on those wet rides where you can really benefit from that extra surface contact area that ultimately keeps the rubber side down!
Saving Time and Money: The Economic Genius of Going Tubeless
Avoiding the hassle and cost of changing tubed flats
Switching to tubeless tires is not just a performance upgrade; it’s a wise economic choice too. Let’s face it, time is money, especially when you’d rather be pedaling than patching up punctures.
Changing a flat tire on a road bike can vary in time depending on the skill and experience of the cyclist, as well as the circumstances (like weather conditions, the type of puncture, and the tools available). For an average cyclist, the process typically includes several steps: stopping and assessing the situation, removing the wheel, replacing or patching the tube, putting the wheel back on, and inflating the tire. So, on average, it might take a cyclist anywhere from 12 to 25 minutes to change a flat tire on the side of the road. Experienced cyclists might do it faster, while those less familiar with the process could take longer. This estimation doesn’t account for potential complications like difficult tire/rim combinations or additional problems found during the process. Swapping out a flat tire is like eating a salad at a pizza party – it’s necessary sometimes, but nobody’s really happy about it!
