I am using these on Mavic Open Pro rims and they fit perfectly.

I was a little concerned while installing them that I may stretch them too far and they could snap, but they held up fine.

These are a lot lighter than the cloth rim strips by the *other* company, and also do not have any of that sticky adhesive as that *other* company's cloth rim strips.

If you ride clinchers and need a rim strip, these are perfect option. I expect these to last at least the life of my tires.

I expected more of these. Mounted them on my Stans Flow rims, and they went on just fine. I change tires pretty regularly and noticed that the edges would sometimes fold into a ridge that would require flattening. They also shifted a bit on the rim. I expected them to have grippier surface contact with the rim. That said, no issues with it really, but haven't changed tires in a while.

    Comments about Ritchey Snap-On Rim Tape:

    You need rim tape to protect your tubes from the spokes. With that in mind, buy the best you can justify buying. This isn't the cheapest or easiest to install, 'cause it's snappy, but you only have to buy and install once. Hey, don't cheap out on that rim tape made of innertubes, just doesn't work well.

      Comments about Ritchey Snap-On Rim Tape:

      I was a bit skeptical at first but these snap on tapes made a believer out of me. Very simple/fast to install and remove (if necessary). After using these I doubt I'll go back the sticky old rim tape.

      Little tough to stretch over the rim but other than that not much to say... good set of rim strips. Comes in a two pack to keep it simple.

      chasing down tube popping problems, i got a set of these. They took some shoehorning to install but have performed nicely. the kind of thing you install and forget about, which is good.

        I bought these over a year ago and just had to remove to replace a spoke. they came off easily and went back on good as new. Way better than using sticky-back rim tape!

        Comments about Ritchey Snap-On Rim Tape:

        Easy to install (purchased 26 x 20mm). I didn't use any tools as others have stated. It fits very tightly, and when I stretched it out, I was concerned that it might snap - but alas, it didn't. Easier install than the "regular" tape I've used before and thinner/lighter. If it holds up as well over time, I'll certainly buy this product again. Has been great so far.

            With a couple of tire levers, this rim tape went on without a hitch. These do fit snugly and require a bit of adjustment once on the rim. I've found it easiest to start the tape with a golf tee in the valve hole and start it around the rim then once the tension builds I used 2 tire levers on opposite ends and pull them towards one another until it's completely on the rim. The golf tee is also useful for adjusting the tape once it's on.
