This rim tape can handle the higher pressures you find with high-end slicks for 26 inch rims. Continental's rim tape is rated to 120psi, so the rim tape won't squeeze into your spoke holes and cause flats. Each strip is a closed loop and is not sticky, making removal and installation a snap. It also doesn't absorb water like cloth rim strip and can be re-used again and again. 20mm width for 26 Inch wheels (20-559 ISO). 1 set includes 2 strips. 25 grams per wheel.

Easy to use, working well so far.

Installing was very easy except centering the last bit as you release it into the rim. This is a continuous loop, so you have a similar problem getting this in properly as getting the last bit of the bit over the rim. A bit of coaxing and it was fine.

Easy to install with excellent fit

Very easy to install and fit my Alex DM18 rims perfectly. I prefer the plastic tapes over cloth tapes in the damp Northwest climate.

Accept no substitute

I used this on my city bike with a new set of Michlean City tires. I switched to this rim tape because the flimsey rubber band one caused me to get a flat tire.

Excellent! Fits 26 x 1.5559 street rims too

Don't make the mistake I made and buy cheap rubber rim strips. I had problems with getting flats on my rear tire. After getting multiple flats I finally figured out they were caused by the rubber rims strips deforming over the spoke nipples head which were causing tiny splits in the tubes. At first I thought the flats were caused by poor quality inner tubes so I bought expensive tubes and I was still getting flats. There is a huge quality difference between these high quality nylon cloth rim strips and rubber rim strips, these rims tapes are designed for tires that inflate to 120psi. The description on the box says they are 20-599 size and they fits my 26 x 1.5559 rims perfectly.
