Silca adds some more finery to their lineup of premium cycling paraphernalia with their Platinum Tubeless Rim Tape. It's 25% thinner for more flexibility across your rims' contours as well as making tire installation easier by freeing up space. It also sticks better to aluminum and 30% better to carbon thanks to its thick adhesive layer that helps fill in surface imperfections. Application on road tubeless rims requires two layers to handle the higher pressures, the length of which weighs in at 9 grams, and you can halve that for CX or 29" MTB use.
9 meter roll. Available in multiple widths. Each roll is enough for a pair of road tubeless wheels, four CX/29" MTB wheels, or five 26" MTB wheels.

I like this tape. No problems so far. I've used other tubeless tape and the Silca is lighter and easier to apply.
