The tubliss system now requires 3 wraps of the rim tape around the rim. Tape is now a red colour and a bit thinner and you have to do one wrap around the centre of the rim, then one wrap up each side to the shoulder of the rim.
Must be to stop the edge of the thicker rim tape eventually wearing through the high pressure tube. I replace my hp tubes at 100hrs for safety and reliability anyway.
There has been a few different types of tapes and procedures since tubliss first came out and it's good to see that they address potential problems to improve an already great system.
I've always found the weakness of the hp tube to be where the valve stem joins into the tube. I've had a new tube faulty here that was replaced on warranty. I never fitted it and always check this area before installation.

I had my v2 rear inner tube rip after 4 rides on the side near the valve. Read how some tubes could be weak around here and after using mousses for years I know I was careful when mounting it all.

Ended up messaging Jeff Douglas <jeff@nuetech.com> with pictures of the rip and my tape setup etc and he put me onto the local distributor Pro Accessories Australia (info@proaccessories.com.au) who sent me out a replacement inner tube at no cost without any BS about how or why but just wanted to get me going again.

Not often these days you get this kind of service so thought it worth a mention on here.

Lots of bad reports in this thread but I’m still keen to give it a go. Probably just the rear at this stage for added traction.
Hoping that as I ride fairly slow terrain I shouldn’t have some of the issues that the racers seem to have?

You'll be ok. As long as you are CAREFULL, follow the instructions to the letter and watch a few vids.
Correct tyre choice can help you being sucessful also, so do your research.
Check the hp tube around the valve stem and make sure the rubber looks ok before you install it,as i've seen a faulty new one.
