I havent got the scales out, i compared against my standard gasser tubes by hand i just looked in the shed they are semi HD tubes not standard thin ones, so that sound about right.
Tubes no more

I'm seriously considering purchasing the Tubliss system from o/s because I don't want to spend my ride time fixing a flat in the bush.

I watched the youtube video and they look good but was just wondering if anyone had any updated opinions from whats already been said on here.

I've been using the system for about a year and can't rate them highly enough.

Have not had an issue with the system since I installed it nearly 5000km ago.
I've changed tires about 14 times for the front and rear collectively and have only had one slow leak issue when running low pressure on a desert ride and sand got into the bead.

You can run lower pressure for an increase of the contact patch for better traction, yet the sidewalls stay rigid for better handling. I find I smash roots and rocks and not worry about rim damage or pinch flats.

Tubliss 10/10

On a recent ride a rider had a catastrophic failure of his tubliss in the front. We were on a forestry road with short tar patches on some bends, he was doing about 70kph, tipped into the bend on a sealed bit of road and the front just let go with no warning, instant flat, and the tyre came off the bead. He was in need of a hospital visit afterwards as his head hit hard enough to give him a black eye, even with a full face helmet.

Last post on this link is his story with pics.

Full on... Shit happens eh. I've seen tubed rears and even Mousse fronts do the same thing.

It always comes down to a broken bead.

I guess its a dangerous sport. Will still use the system!

I've put nearly 1500 hard kms on my Tubliss setup and never had a problem. I won't go back to tubes now. I love being able to run low pressures without worrying about the rim spinning in the tyre. I do think proper procedure needs to be followed when fitting tyres though. I always make sure the inner core is swimming in soapy water to allow it to settle into the correct position on initial inflation.

I do what the instructions say and check the pressures before every ride. It's a bit of a hassle especially the 110psi one, but it could be the key.

Yeah, your supposed to check it every ride. I check mine every few rides. Never had an issue thus far.

I did put my 0-15psi tire guage on the 110psi valve...

Doesn't work anymore...

it wasnt the pressure that caused the failure it was the wire in the red bit that rubbed thru and poped the high pressure tube causing beed let go and a instant flat
