  Tubeless Setup

Taping your Rims

​The video shows how to tape your rims. Ensuring the rim surface is clean and free of oil and dirt is essential to creating an effective tubeless seal. Not doing this properly will result in leaks.

Sealant and Tires

All of our rims are designed to have tires mounted without needing a compressor. The key to this is using a tubeless ready tire, sealant and ensuring the tire beads are in the center of the rim channel during inflation.  Check out the video below to learn how to mount your tires.

Valve Leak

This video explains possible issues that your tubeless setup could have if you see sealant leaking from the valve area

  Wheelbuilding

Spoke Tension

All NOBL rims must be build to the specified tension range. Building outside of this range voids warranty and leads to premature failure.

The optimal range for spoke tension is 120-130kgf.  At no point should the spoke tension exceed 135 kgf.

Our detailed wheelbuild guide can be found HERE.

Wheel Building Components

All NOBL rims  MUST be built using a tensiometer.  This is essential for building the wheel correctly. 

Butted spokes must be used. Used of straight gauge spokes voids warranty. We recommend using Sapim spokes for all NOBL builds.

Alloy or brass nipples can be used. Our preference is Sapim Secure Lock Alloy nipples. They have proven to be durable, corrosion resistant and light.
