Tubeless Ready Rim ( None-drilled holes on the rim bed ).

 Rim Tapes are not required .

Andoza tubeless specific seamless rims have further advantages over conventional rims. 

The seamless rim bed is not drilled and therefore stiffer and rim strength highly enhanced. With the rim being absolutely airtight, it is possible to use a tubeless tire without tubeless milk, rim tapes, so we saving some grams and rotation balance for races and the like. 

 The Advantages:  

   No holes on the rim bed means that the rim is uniform at every point, free from stress points or zones of weakness channels and, for the clincher profiles no rim tapes are required any more, to the benefit of weight reduction and increase the reactivity of wheels and acceleration. 

     It lowers wheel weight at the extreme outer edge of the rim resulting in lower rolling resistance and better performance. In a traditional clincher set up, the rim tape creating friction and energy loss. With the tubeless seamless rims set up, there is no frictional energy loss between the tire and tube because the rim tape is gone.


   The advantages of Hawk Wheels are immediately clear:   

  1. Greater rim lifetime,durable & reliable. 

  2. Greater resistance to fatigue. 

  3. The possibility to provide the spokes greater tension, and greater stiffness 

    which, in terms of superior cycling performance. 

  4. There is no risk of snake bites as there is no rim tape to rupture. 

  5. The friction between the rim, tyre and tube is now a past thing. This 

    crucially reduces the rolling resistance. It is even smaller than with super light competition tyres.

Rim-tape failure at a recessed spoke hole, and resulting puncture 


      As we know the rim tape is supposed to protect the tube from rim imperfections, sometimes it is not properly placed in the right position,and sometimes spoke ends can actually poke through the tape. Burrs and other sharp edges inside the rim can easily puncture tubes. If a rim has recessed spoke holes, the rim tape must withstand the air pressure in the tire.
