Strengths:    Tape is strong

Weaknesses:    Adhesive is weak, causing lateral shift, bunching

Bottom Line:   
Maybe this tape used to be good, but a lot of riders are now reporting that the adhesive backing is inadequate.
Once I went from 100 to 110 psi, I started getting rim hole flats. Maybe if I had gotten the 20mm instead of the 13mm, the tape would not have shifted as much, but right now, it exposes the spoke holes. Velox makes tough tape, but the glue is an important part of the package, and they just cannot skimp on it. I'm going to try the Continental tape.

Strengths:    Protective, Durable

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
These things rock, they protect from the rim like no other rimstrip and are super easy to install. As a mechanic I see a bunch of different rimstrips and have never seen a failure in a Velox. When I pull a customer's tire off and see a Velox, I'm like "whoa. this dude knows whatsup"

Strengths:    it works best of any I have tried in last 40 years. There may be something better, but every time I try another brand I've been disappointed. Performance and Price Point have similar rim tapes which are pretty good too. Never had luck with plastic rim strips.

Weaknesses:    thick- which for some rim/tire combos makes putting on a tire harder- but beats pinch flats

Bottom Line:   
tough to beat.

Tubeless remounting issues with Stan's tape

A few months ago I got some new Pacenti SL23 rims and carefully applied 2 layers of Stan's tape before mounting some tubeless tires. Tire mounting issues aside, I inflated the tire and seated the beads easily the first time using just a floor pump. This weekend I was due for some new tires so I got ... Read More »

ATTN: Promoters – course tape source?

I'm in my 6th year of promoting a local CX race. Up until this year, we've been fortunate enough to have a connection to a major bike manufacturer that supplied us with 14, 1,000 ft rolls of tape. It was great! That connection no longer exists, so I'm frantically searching for a new source. I do ... Read More »

Handlebar Tape

I'm shopping for handlebar tape, and am comparing Fizik Performance and Lizard Skins 2,5mm tape. Any thoughts or opinions/preferences? The Lizard Skins are fairly expensive, and I don't know if they're worth the extra cash. I have a Fizik saddle and road shoes, and am sold on both.Read More »
