milKit products offer the simplest solution for tubeless installation and maintenance. We designed our rim tape to be very strong and reliable for an airtight fit, but with enough flex to make installation quick and easy. Rim tape is needed to ensure air does not escape through holes that are drilled in the rim for spokes. Choose a rim tape width that matches the inner width of your rim or is slightly larger. The rim tape should cover the whole rim base and it can even cover a part of both sides. Using too narrow rim tape can lead to air leaking between rim and tape – which can be frustrating. If it is too wide it can interfere with the tire seating correctly.
For easy and effective installation:
Clean rim thoroughly and ensure it is dry
Install rim tape by pulling it firmly into the rim. It must be tight and ensure there are no gaps or air trapped underneath
Make sure it overlaps at least 10 cm / 4 in over the valve hole, its better to have a longer overlap than shorter
Use two layers for high pressure wheels (above 8 bar / 120 psi)
Cut rim tape at a 45° angle for the best adhesion and flexibility
Install milKit tubeless valves into rim: pinch just a small hole into the rim tape and push valve through tape into rim
