Continental's Easy Tape can handle the higher pressures you find with racing clinchers, and won't squeeze into your spoke holes like other rim tapes 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.

Available in multiple sizes for different rim diameters. Sold per pair (enough to complete one wheelset).

Very Good but Fiddly to Install

This is a very good quality rim strip, but you have to work carefully for it to fit. The width is on the high side at 18 mm, which means it has to be installed exactly in the center of the rim or it may cover the rim tire engagement area, interfering with tire installation (at least my rim, a 700 MATRIX IsoC) . Of course you have to cover the spoke holes, or it won't work. It is very tight the last couple feet or so, and centering is difficult. What I did with the 2nd one (first one I destroyed trying to center the tape the last couple feet) was to install six plastic tire levers across the rim under the rim tape when I had the last two feet or so to finish, and scooted the rim tape to exactly the rim center line. Then I carefully removed the tire levers one at a time starting on the first installed, all the while matching the rim circumference center line with the tape center line. This worked fine The tire is inflated to 105 psi w no problems.

Continental Easy Tape Rim Strip

The Continental Easy Tape Rim Strip is an awesome product. I purchased a set of Continental Cruise Contact 700c29 Inch Tire 700c x 50mm for my bike. I immediately started to have flats on the inside of my rim, I purchased this Rim strip and it instantly solved my problem. No more flats.

I won't be going back to tape

I found this no harder to install than fabric tape. It won't pick up gunk or leave sticky residue. Seems more durable. No more expensive per wheel than fabric tape unless you're buying the fabric tape in 100yd quantity. What's not to like?

This is the good stuff.

Velox fabric tape is OK, but leaves gooey residue and will retain water.

Other plastic rim tapes are usually only rated to 120 psi and will balloon into your spoke holes eventually cutting on the hole edges and even touch the spoke ends.

This is a heavy, fiber-reinforced tape rated to 15 bar 220 psi, So if you run at 120 or greater you should get this. It is a little harder to install because it is TIGHT, but it is worth the effort.

Be aware that Conti also makes a lighter version of Easy Tape that is like the standard 120 psi rim tape. So be careful to always get this High Pressure version. It is well worth the extra reliability at a very small weight and cost penalty. BTD is one of the few places you can find the High Pressure version.

Perfect tape for my wheels

The spoke holes on my wheels seem a bit deeper than most.

I blew out several tubes before I discovered the problem.

This tape solved the issue as was easy to install.

Just use a pencil to keep the stem hole lined up.

Good quality, durable, go-to rim strip.

I ride Rails to Trails 25 miles a day most days. Rim strips are easy to take for granted, bu ones that don't last or aren't uniform are a pain. These do the job well.

Well worth its weight in gold.

Well to start out I am returning to cycling after about 15 years. So I did my home work. It was the ease of getting it into place that hit me right away and it almost lined it self up in the center by it self.

Very easy to install.

Love that they come in two strips and not a roll. Just line up the valve stem hole and they snap easily onto the rim. I run 110 PSI and have had no problems.

Excellent quality stips

I used these on a couple of cheap Wal-mart bikes that used thin plastic for rim strips. The overall ride of the bikes were much improved.

I'm glad to have bought this based on the recomendations of other reviewers.

I like to replace the rim strip on the rims of a new bike when right away. This helps to avoid unexpected problems when riding.

Don't Ignore Rim Strip SAFETY

I've swapped out my oe tires on all my bikes and in doing so noticed the rim strip used from the factory in all but one case was poor quality. In two cases the strip had cratered and dimpled into the spoke holes to the point that tube failure was likely. Even on my mtb wheels I've had this problem and I never air those tires past 55 psi. I was very lucky, one hard bump in the road might have caused a blowout, not a good on some of the hills I ride down at full speed. Continental rim strips won't deform under high pressure, I use it on all my bikes now. Cheap insurance and piece of mind, check the condition of your rims strips whenever you change out tires and tubes.
