Been running Crest rims tubeless for over a year - I wonder why anyone would still want to run tubes - reduced weight / rolling resistance, lower pressures and better grip for starters. 1 puncture in 12 months due to glass on the road which would have shredded any tyre. So impressed, I built some P35 rims and can run 2.4" tyres at less than 16/18psi tubeless - floats over loose sand and I can get up climbs that leave everyone else scrabbling behind. Great success with Conti X-Kings and Race Kings - the basic, folding ones work fine.

You'd need there conversion kit fit a standard rim. Personally I find it a bit odd that their tubeless rims need so much extra faffage to be used tubeless. The UST set up strikes me as much easier and has been from my experience.


I also think its a faf as you shouldn't have to buy an additional £50 kit to make a"tubeless" rim tubeless.



You don't. You buy a £20 kit.
