Behind the behind the scenes.

Behind every good road tire, there's either a good tube or a bit of goo — but they can't carry the weight alone. HED's Rim Tape provides even more support from even further behind the tubes or sealant that are already behind the scenes.

Works!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have used the HED Rim Tape for Ardennes Plus and other 22-23mm internal width rims. The tape is a little wider, but if you pull it tight as you apply it, it will conform to the rim bed and go up the sides. it works! Make sure to clean the rim with some alcohol so the tape will stick well,

What is the length?

Too Wide

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this tape to convert my HED Ardennes wheels over to tubeless. The tape is 25mm wide, exactly the width of the OUTSIDE of my HED rims. Competitive Cyclist should mention this in the item details. This tape should be labeled as MTB tubeless tape, because it is the same as my Stan's tape used on the mountain bikes.

This is what HED intends for their Plus rims. It's difficult to know from David's comment what his wheels are (he says "Ardennes" which are not the Plus, but 25 mm wide which is the Plus size). HED video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fI033HsLE10

For tubeless installation: when installing second layer of tape, i found it impossible to remove the bubbles. Will this work if it has bubbles?

Absolutely will work.

Yes.

For tubeless, will one layer of tape work or do i need 2? 700x25 tubeless ready rims, using 23mm tubeless tire.

I'm thinking of getting this for my Reynolds Assault tubeless rims. A) Will this seal the spoke holes enough to get a tire to mount?, and B) Is one roll enough to tape 2 wheels? Thanks, Trish

Hi Trish, This will work for your Reynolds rims; that said, the wheels should have come with some blue rim tape which is what they recommend using for tubeless setup. We do not have this tape, but Reynolds does sell it on their site. Please let me know if I can offer any additional assistance.

Is this tape appropriate for the 25mm Ardennes+ rims?

Hey Nate, The HED Rim Tape should work great on your 25mm Ardennes wheels. Feel free to shoot me any additional questions directly. Kyle Expert Gearhead klivingston@backcountry.com 801-736-4337
