Just right!

I am still learning the intricacies of taking care of rims and ensuring I have good tape, tubes, and tires for the best rides and safety. This product was the perfect length and easy for me as a wannabe garage mechanic to install. It was just what I needed and is working well. I recommend using it.

The only choice for tubed tire rim tape

Velox rim tape works. That simple and great. Easy to put on, Prevents all the issues that rim tape for tube tire setups is supposed to prevent. I have tried others, including other cloth brands. This is the best.

timeless quality

Nothing has ever replaced this basic rim tape. Plastic rim tape tends to shift exposing the edges of spoke holes causing flats. That is not to say this tape doesn't at times shift, but not like others. Had one actually shift, but easy enough to shift back unlike plastic tape.

This tape worked perfectly

I replaced my tubes & tires, so I decided to replace the rubber rim strip with a cloth rim strip. I got rid of any possibility of a leak caused by a spoke rubbing against the tube.

bulletproof!

not the lightest, but if you are having problems with your tubes flatting from the inside of your wheels (not tire punctures but ribbing expanding into spoke holes).

This stuff will fix it!

I keep extra rolls of it in in lots of sizes because it is so handy, after a few years of riding a new wheelset, you will need this stuff.

top notch

lighter than rubber and (I know what your thinking) even wrenched duct tape in a high velocity place where grams matter most. Yes, Made in France.

best rim tape

many rims come with a thin plastic-like tape, causing flats. I replace it always with this.

Quality Heavy Cloth With Strong Adhesive

The two bikes I purchased for strengthening my arthritic knee came with a very light weight rubbery plastic rim strip which I knew in time would cause a tube to blow out. And because like most bicyclists, I do not enjoy needlessly repairing flats or replacing tubes, I got the Velox rim strip to replace the factory strip. Velox really shouldn't be called a strip, but a cloth tape, and the cloth is very heavy and it has a strong adhesive, so once installed, it isn't going to move.

This was recommended by the sales lady at Bike Tires Direct

I bought the white rim tape as suggested by the sales person at their on-site store. The white tape allows better visibility of the position of the tube within the rim when fixing a flat to help eliminate pinched tubes. It was a great suggestion. The rim tape was easy to install.

Nothing works better

This is the best. It doesn't wear out or slip for years. It'll protect the tube from any sharp spoke ends.

Qulaity product, great for high pressure clinchers

I bought this tape because my hybrid rims came with a flimsy rubber rim strip the stretched and let the tube enter the spoke holes and pop. I got the 22mm width which was a tad too wide for my hybrid rims, but it doesn't interfere with the bead. I've rised the pressure more with these to 100psi, no signs of ever failing! This rim tape is a must for any tire with deep spokeholes in aero rims, or anybody tired of inferior rim tape popping tubes.

The Solution for Latex Tubes

Tried to install latex tubes with OEM rim tape, but that was not successful. Talked with customer service and their recommendation was to use Velox Rim strip.

Received it a few days latter, installed on the wheels in a snap. Problem solved, tubes are doing well and love the ride.
