I was a winning A rider and ran the NueTech Tubliss system for two racing seasons and never had a flat.
I could run 8 pounds of pressure and never slow down for rocks and trees. No dented rims either.
The heavy-duty tubes make the brakes work harder to stop and the wheels heavier which effects how the wheels follow the ground and how the forks work.
Mousse need to be changed once a season, but the Tubliss went through multiple tires and two seasons without a issue.
The only issue with Tubliss was the initial install. I used soap on the inner tube and always checked pressure before I loaded up.

Haha, all good man. Thanks for the feedback guys.
I've been running Tubliss off and on and have had my issues with them. I dented
my rear rim and Honey Lake running an MX51 at 13psi. One thing I didn't realize
is the Tubliss system really isn't designed to work well with soft sidewall, MX
tires. The owner of Tubliss, Jeff, is one of the best guys in our industry. He
set me up with a Dunlop
rally tire up front and a 739 desert tire in the rear. The
front was set at 5 psi and the rear was set to 4.
I was extremely hesitant to try this setup and really just took is word for it. I'm
a very aggressive rider and tend to smash over rocks, roots and nasty terrain.
I raced an extremely dusty, challenging 2 hour and 15 minute cross country.
The feel of the bike going over nasty terrain was like floating on a cloud. The
front tire felt really good and planted even on slippery
My goal for the year was to break the top 20 overall and finish 3rd or better. I
managed to achieve that goal by finishing 15th overall and 2nd place in A open.
That finish has really boosted my confidence in Tubliss. I'm going to stick with
