It's hard to find a good balance between the traction of low tire pressure and reducing the risk of pinch flats. Many riders opt for heavy tubes or mousses, but the Nuetech Tubliss Gen 2.0 Tire System is a relatively new solution that uses a clever design to eliminate pinch flats, bad traction, and tubes entirely.
The Tubliss System works by replacing your conventional inner tube with a smaller, higher pressure insert that hugs the inside of your rim. This creates two separate pressure areas inside your tire. One area inside the high pressure insert, and another lower-pressure area that fills the rest of your tire where your old tube used to be.
Inflate the high-pressure insert and it locks the bead in place, forming a seal against the rim and acting like a bumper that protects the rim from impact. With the high-pressure insert filled, the lower-pressure area can be inflated like a traditional tubeless tire you would find on a car. With the Tubliss Tire System installed there are no tubes to pinch, plug kits are a more viable repair option, and you can run much lower psi without your bead rolling off since the high pressure air chamber will still have it locked down.
Plenty of riders swear by the Tubliss System and for many enduro, GNCC, or off-road riders it's a great alternative to a traditional setup. Watch our video above for more detailed information on the Nuetech Tubliss Gen 2.0 Tire System and see if it will work for you.
