This might be the last rim strip you'll ever buy.

Unlike conventional cloth rim tape, Continental's Easy Tape is a closed loop and is not sticky, making removal and installation a snap. It also won't absorb water, doesn't creep into spoke holes under high pressure, and can be re-used again and again.

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

I was having many flats and I finally thought it might be the original rim tape squirming to one side revealing the spoke holes and those wearing holes in the tubes. The Contenital rim tape went on easy and is very stable side to side solving my puncture issues. Superior rim tape to the original on the rims.

Not adhesive, it is a single band that stretches slightly for installation. Robust thick tape that seats in nicely and perfectly fit our 29er 20mm rims.

Continental Easy Tape Rim Strip NOT Easy
rating
by Jeff
Cycling Enthusiast

0 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

I used or tried this rim strip on two Mavic Open Pro rims. With the first rim, I was successful in getting this rim strip to seat evenly inside the rim. It was not easy to stretch this rim strip over the last section of rim and have it drop in well centered.

On my second Mavic Open Pro rim, it was a failure. In the final stretch over the last bit of rim, it dropped in on the inside side of the rim. No matter how I tried, I could not move this strip over to center it in the rim. Heck, I could not even grab it to get it out of the rim to try again. In the end, out of frustration, I took a sharp tool to cut this rim strip and remove it.

I then proceeded to TAPE my second Mavic Open Pro rim with reliable, truly easy to use, VELOX RIM TAPE.

It's The Tape to get

The white cotton tape has been my go-to forever. But high pressure caused spoke holes to appear. Not good.

If you run pressures over 110 PSI, this is the tape to get. It doesn't deform, installs easily, and will probably last until your bike gets donated to a museum.

EZ Install hack for a great rim strip...
rating
by Jeff

A golf T should be in every box, but it was pretty easy to borrow. Slip through the strip and stem hole to hold in place to mount, then use the pointed end to gently nudge for minor centering once the strip is on. Works like a charm.

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.

Best Rim Strips Ive Ever Used
rating

These are my go-to choice after trying at least half a dozen other known and unknown brands. They protect well against puncture from the hostile inside edges of double eyelets even at 100 psi. They are thin, which is very helpful for tire mounting, easy install and stay put well. Pro tip - put a tapered tool like a drift punch through the valve stem hole in the rim and rim strip to keep the strip exactly centered over the valve stem hole in the rim as you install it - saves time and temper.

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?

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.

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.
