I saw a tube like that once. I asked for a 110/90x19 tube and the parts guy brought out what looked like a shoe box with reinforcing tape all over it. When I took the tube out to look at it, it immediately took the shape of a tire, and looked as if it could have been rolled onto the rim and run by itself, perhaps without even inflating it. I asked him for a lighter tube. He had trouble getting the HD tube back in the shoe box, so he set it aside until he could get a couple guys to help him, and brought out another box. This one looked like it was originally made to package a radiator cap. I went to another store. :excuseme:

One flaw it this system is that unless a tire is made as a tubeless tire to begin with, the bead may not seal very well. In fact, absent a layer of rubber on the inside specifically designed to seal in air, the tire itself may leak. That, and I fail to see how it's any more flat resistant without a tube than with one.


I run Moose Hd tubes or I will get 3 flats a day running 14-16 pounds. Lots of rocks here. You think a shoe box is big, outta see the box the moose comes in. This idea is great not as good as Chad Reeds set up, but great. I have 2 buddies running these with zero problems at 10-12 pounds. If you are riding on tracks with zero rocks etc, might not make a difference but come here and your mind will change, or you will be changing tubes all day. They Work Period

I'm running HD tubes for the desert and WORC races on my YZF450.
Replacing them with this set up easily takes 3 lbs off...once I install the front one also...

Also I've had little to no leaking of air out of the regular tire. I could put some slime in there , but its really not necessary .

Okayyy,.. You running the "TUbliss" set up? FYI if ya Lube the sides of that RED Inner Liner (MOTUL silicone works GREAT!) and then use plenty of soapy water on the main tire while inflating the inner liner, they seal perfectly almost every time.

I don't blame everyone for being doubting that TUbliss works as well as it does, but everyone who has them loves them... everyone has hasn't tried them , well... don't! I need the advantage! Some of the off road teams have tested them and are running them, they aren't telling a soul...(-;
