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.

Great rim tape, easy to use
It does what it's supposed to do, and looks better than my old tape. Not that anyone will ever see it unless they're changing my tires, but still.

Super simple rim tape
Bought to replace super worn out rim tape on an old set of mtb wheels. I was amazed how small and light these are compared to the Velox rolls I'm used to. Was easy to install, and the sizing was perfect for my rims. The only complaint is it is hard to reposition if you don't get it lined up perfectly the first time

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
