1. WHAT IS IT?

  • Road tubeless wheel-tire system redesigned from the ground up to improve the user experience and guarantee safety – all while maintaining the benefits of the technology.
  • The ONLY reliable road tubeless systems that is easy to use and 100% safe.
  • The only standard that can inspire confidence for the consumer that they will have ZERO issues with their tubeless system.

2. WHO IS IT FOR?

Any cyclist who is looking for the most advanced and high-performance wheel and tire technology for speed, puncture resistance and comfort.

3. WHY DID WE MAKE IT?

Why should the game-changing benefits of road tubeless be reserved for those who have a penchant for tinkering? Having faster rolling wheels that are more comfortable and resistant to punctures should be something easy, safe and hassle-free.
Through our years of expertise and invention of the wheel-tire system, we are proud to present a system that ticks all of the boxes while defining the standard for road tubeless.
By combining our knowledge of wheels and tires we were able to perfect the symbiotic relationship between the tire bead and the rim hook to offer a system that is not only fast on the road and easy to maintain … but also 100 % reliable so you can focus on one thing – your ride.

4. BENEFITS

SAFE AND EASY TO USE
• Perfect union between tire and wheel, ensuring easy installation and removal, is guaranteed thanks to our patented UST technology and wheel-tire system foundation.
• Obsessive control in manufacturing provides the optimal rim diameter along with a precise tire bead diameter and stiffness / stretch. This ensures a lifetime of hassle-free installation / maintenance when using UST approved products.

FAST IN A LINE AND QUICK THROUGH THE TURNS
• All-new and exclusive 11Storm rubber compound achieves the best balance of grip and low rolling resistance.
• No tube means no friction with the tire resulting in a faster rolling system.
• UST system (including sealant) is 40g lighter than a traditional tire + tube system.

SMOOTHER RIDE AND MORE PUNCTURE RESISTANT
• Ride with lower pressure for increased comfort and reduced risk of pinch flats associated with traditional tire + tube systems.
• Just 30g of sealant prevents most punctures.

5. UST. WHAT DOES IT STAND FOR?

Universal: 
The only tubeless system that is universally accepted and recognized by every tyre and rim manufacturers.
The only tubeless system that is included in the standards that rule the bicycle wheel and tyre world! ISO 4210 / 5775 (in progress) and ETRTO 2018.
Rider’s benefit : the only tubeless system that has been tested and approved for safety and ease of use.

System:
Not just a rim, a wheel or a tyre considered alone.
But the perfect match between well-defined tyre beads (stiffness and diameter) and a well define rim contour (bead seat diameter, rim wall height, hook shape and depth, depth and side slope of the central grove).
Rider’s benefit : the guarantee for a safe and easy to use tubeless system.

Tubeless :
An open clincher tyre system that works without the need for a tube.
Requires an airtight rim and an airtight tyre. When the use of sealant is needed to seal the tyre, it is referred to as Tubeless Ready.
Rider’s benefit : potentially less flats, higher rolling efficiency, extra comfort, extra grip, less weight… if well executed.
