It is very important to take your time and follow the install instructions. Watch the installation video! A picture is worth a thousand words but a video is worth a million. By following the instructions I feel the tubliss system is almost easier to install than a traditional tube. Check the high and low pressure chambers before each ride. I have only one ride so far, I ran the low pressure side at 7.5 psi. Traction was good, the high pressure liner gives the sidewall good stability. I will start to test lower pressures in the future. The ability to run lower pressures really helps avoid deflection on roots and rocks. Great setup, bike was a 2002 CR250 setup for GNCC racing.

It's not about going tubeless for the sake of eliminating tubes. It's all about the countless benefits of going TUbliss that makes every rider and racer better, faster, and more in control.
TUbliss is, essentially, a high pressure rim lock and seal that secures the entire tire bead to the rim, completely eliminating the use of a conventional tube. TUbliss allows you to run a low tire pressure (as low as 10 PSI) which dramatically improves traction; especially important for Enduro and Baja racing. Since there's no conventional tube, the days of pinched tubes and flats are over! Even if you get a tire puncture, the bead stays seated to the rim.
- A high pressure rim lock and seal that secures the entire tire bead to the rim.
- Allows you to run a low tire pressure (as low as 10 PSI).
- Seal is formed against the inside of the tire itself so it holds the tire firmly.
- Works even with the most dented, dinged, or tweaked rim.
- Size: 18".
- Fits: 18" x (1.85" - 2.15") rims.
The 100 PSI TUbliss inner bladder literally clamps the entire bead and side wall of the tire to the rim, providing full bead lock performance around the full circumference of the rim. The seal is formed against the inside of the tire itself, not the rim, so it holds the tire firmly and makes the sidewalls stay upright and absorb the full impact, unlike bending and deflection you get with conventional tubes. Because of the design, TUbliss will even work with the most dented, dinged, or tweaked rim.
Improved Traction: TUbliss secures the bead so securely that it allows a low tire pressure for improved straight line traction without the risk of a pinch flat or tire bead slippage. Because TUbliss means you can much lower tire pressures, traction is improved which is especially important for Baja and Enduro riders. You have no tubes to be concerned with, so lower pressure with TUbliss means you'll never pinch a tube! Replace old technology with a stronger, modern and efficient system. Even if you get a tire puncture, the bead stays seated to the rim.
Virtually Flat Proof: TUbliss really is virtually flat proof when used with a tire sealant. Sealants can't work on tubes where holes in the rubber stretch and tear. With TUbliss, your sealant works directly on the tire where it matters. Plus, the design of TUbliss helps keep the tire seated on the bead and the sidewalls more stable, virtually making "flat wobbles" a thing of the past. Riders have reported riding longer and harder, completely unaware that they had a tire puncture.
Weight Savings: TUbliss also provides a weight savings of up to 3 pounds per wheel which instantly translates into less rotating weight and increases acceleration. Less unsprung weight allows significant suspension performance gains. Experts say that eliminating a pound of rotating unsprung weight is equivalent to dropping 5 pounds of static weight!
Runs Cooler: Without the weight and friction of a conventional tube installed, tire temperatures are greatly reduced. This also eliminates tire pressure increases during the course of a moto.
Rim Protection: TUbliss protects the rim from dings and dents by holding the tire firmly and making the sidewalls stay upright and absorb the full impact, unlike bending and deflection of conventional tubes.
I tried Tubliss to try to get better traction and improve my ability to climb slippery single track trails. I typricall ride 65 to 90 mile loops on logging roads, atv tracks, single tracks at least twice a week about 5500 miles a year. It's rocky, rooty and wet in the mountains on the Oregon Coast where I ride. After 6 rides, I'm convinced that Tubliss are amazing. They work exactly as promised. Traction is greatly increased, the ride is much more plush and your tires last longer. There may still be a use for tubes, but I could not tell you as a recreational rider why I would ever go back to them. 2015 KTM 350 EXC-F.
When you follow the directions they go on easy and and they hold air as advertised I have ridden on them several times and surprised that I could run 10 psi and have never had to add air
The TUbliss system works great! Being able to run really low pressures in slick conditions adds a huge amounts of traction. I had a bit of a problem with the install but Jeff from TUbliss was quick to respond and help me diagnose the problem! Will be using TUbliss on all future bikes!
After getting one to many flats, and having my riding time cut short. I decided to give the tubliss system a try. I have only a couple hours riding time on it so far, and it lives up to my expectations. Good handling, and no worry of a flat.
If there is a downside to this system, it may be fact that a hole 7/16" must be drilled into rim 4 spokes from the valve stem hole.
If your ok with the hole drilling, then the benefits will outweigh the fact that there is another hole in your rim.
Like I mentioned, only a couple hours ride time so far, but the handling is very good, and the "no fear of flat" is nice.
I included a picture of the tubliss on my front rim.
Absolutely a must have product. Got the tubliss system for the front and back tire. Had some operator error on the back tire. Called nuetech and they have probably some of the best customer service I have ever experienced. Tubliss does exactly what it's supposed to do.
I purchased this system after suffering a pinch flat in the rear and then a pinch flat in the front the following weekend. I had read that installation was more involved. There are more steps, however the instructions are clear and installation was no more difficult than regular tubes. On the track I experimented with air pressures between 6 and 8 psi. I found I like about 7.25 in the rear and about 8 in the front. Traction was great and I made up significant time on flat corners. I had no issues with leaks, the bike feels more planted, and I felt an advantage over other riders in certain track conditions. I will be using these from now on.
this is by far the best system I have ever used!
super solid!!! SAVES money big time!!
I have had them on for some time forget about pinched inner tubes or a flat inner tube ruining ur day at the track... since I have had these on I have not had one flat and if I do I can still ride with the flat or takeout the nail and plug It up with a plug and go easy quick fix anywhere..
when its time to change tires just need to order the tubeless innertubes that are only 12$ and I only had to change mine every time I put new tires on and that's because I want to not have to.
They work as advertised. Great product
It isn't often that someone is able to reinvent the wheel but Nutech has pulled it off! Make sure to pay super close attention to the installation video noting hand movements and placement. I was too rough the first time but Jeff Douglas at Nutech went way beyond expectations and called me while on his vacation even after he had just been injured!!! They sent me a replacement and the next two installs went on perfectly. Step up and give it a try. I'm hitting big logs and rocks(1-2 foot) very hard at 9 psi. Incredible!!!
Have used this for 5 rides over roots ,rocks and creek runs with many different sizes of rocks and ledges and not a flat yet,very impressed and highly recommend.
I have used one on the rear for two years, I am a big fan. I had to get one for the front as well.
Everything I read about this product is accurate and true.
Installation is easier than with standard tubes.
Traction is noticeably better.
Wheels are better balanced.
I don't get jack hammered in the arms as much over roots and rocks due to running at 10-F and 8-R.
Follow the directions and you'll have great success.
Make the investment its worth every penny!
The Idea is great, how it is design and implemented needs improvements. It worked great for three months then ran in to inflation problems, needed to check tire after every ride. I could not trust that it would be at the correct pressure for both the sealing tube and the tire. it does not yet have durability, only lasted seven months.
TUBLISS IS TRUE BLISS! SUPER EASY TO INSTALL IF YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS EXACTLY. I ALMOST DIDN'T NEED TIRE SPOONS! IM RUNNING 4PSI IN THE REAR AND 6PSI IN THE FRONT WITH DUNLOP AT81 RC SET. TRACTION IS UNREAL! I DONT SEE MYSELF EVER GOING BACK TO TUBES.
Good concept, bad for desert where there is thorns.
I Ordered these for desert racing based on the good reviews it has. My lack of proper research on these led me to the issue where I am still getting flats due to thorns. I was unaware that the psi you run through the red bladder is only air between it and the tire. Any punctures and you're losing air. I have to run a TON of sealant in order to keep my air pressure as getting thorns in my tires is unavoidable with the terrain i ride normally.
The good thing is that the inner tube that you inflate to 100 psi does its job in keeping the tire beaded to the rim, so if you do have a flat you're not running the risk of ruining your rim as bad as if you had a flat with a regular tube. I still dont go full pace if i see that im running flat.
Overall, I'm impressed with the concept. I have hit square edge rocks dead on, flat landed off a few jumps, and been able to push through very rough stuff with confidence that I dont have a tube that would normally get pinched. Highly recommend for tracks, rocky trails and woods style of terrain but would probably look at other options if you are looking to avoid flats from thorny desert style terrain.
I tried these a few rides back and now have converted everything I own! The days of changing tubes in the woods are GONE!!!!
just mounted it this weekend, have not rode with it yet. took longer to mount than i thought.
Amazing traction gains simple install would recommend to anyone
easy to install just follow the instructions I had no problem installing the tube I love the fact that you can run low air pressure for better traction and the weight saving is a plus
