Strength:

No problems in my time using it. Easy to remove if need be.

Weakness:

It frays if you have tacky adhesive left over from the competitors cloth strip.

I was skeptical having used the cloth tape for 15+ years. It never failed. The shop didn't have the cloth stuff but said I'd like this one. I bought it.

Apply with a valve stem on the opposite side to keep the opening positioned correctly. Stretch it on and let it rubber band's itself into position.

Strength:

Funky red
Tight and secure
Wide enough to not shift

These strips are TIGHT and secure.
I've been using them with Vittoria Rubino Pro's at +-135psi and I don't have to think about them.

Similar Products Used:

Standard rim tape

The REALLY bad rim strips that came on Shimano R500 wheels. Ya know, the narrow ones that would shift, expose spoke nipple cutouts, and flat you on nearly every bloody ride!!!
