Review w/ additional product details.
For those who are interested I'll fill in some missing product details. This is the "snap on" type rim tape, similar to Ritchey Snap On. It's one snug continuous loop with no adhesive. The mountain (26") version is 18 mm wide which is what is recommended by the manufacturer of my rims.

I watched a You Tube video of a guy trying to install the Ritchey version and he made it look like a real pain and took about 10 minutes for one wheel. This Origin8 version was easy, took about 30 seconds; just stretch it genty as you work it around the rim. There's no adhesive which makes it easy to center on the rim, however could potentially allow it to shift during service. So far I've mounted and removed a tube+tire one time and it doesn't seem to have moved, though I still think a pressure-type adhesive on the back would be reassuring. I suppose a little double-sided tape could be used. And finally, FWIW, the package says it's nylon with polyurethane coating. Not sure what makes that "environmentally friendly," but a good product nonetheless.

Excellent rim tape!
Works great, easy to install. I have these rim strips in two different sets of wheels and have never had an issue with these strips on either set. Great product for the price.

Well made, easy to use and good looking.
I purchased this to replace some Velox tape on a set of wheels that I hand-built about ten years ago. The cloth of the old tape was still in good shape but the glue had dried out along its length so rather than bodge together some sort of fix I opted for new tape. The design looks pretty good. The tape fit over the nipple heads and sat snugly in the channel of the Magic 217 rims. It's not very elastic but does have a bit of give to make installation simple. I can't speak to their durability yet but they certainly seem well made. I would recommend them to a friend as well as buy them again.

BEST USES: Upgrade, Racing, Casual Riding

works for me
put it on WTB dual duty rims. Been riding about 3, 4 times a week for about a month now. No problems. Reasonable price, easy install and fit fine.

Unimpressed
Thin and flexible, goes on very easily, but doesn't stay in place well. When I took off my tire, I saw a crease mark along the center of the strip, evidence that the tire's beads was pushing it around. Didn't see any dimpling from running high pressure, but it's only been on for a week and I put a layer of Stan's tubeless tape underneath as extra security, which is not high pressure friendly.

Spend a couple more bucks, or you may regret it.

PROS: Inexpensive, Easy To Install, Lightweight

CONS: Doesn't Stay In Place, Flimsy
