Velox Rim Tape

Velox is the standard rim tape sought after by many riders. It's survived the test of time and has remained the gold standard for longevity and quality. While it's a simple component, its essential for a properly-functioning interface between your rim and tire. This light weight fabric tape protects the tube from spoke/nipple/rim puncture. Measure the inner width of your rim (over the spoke nipples) to determine the proper size.

  • Rolls sold singly. One roll is enough for one rim.
  • Self-adhesive for easy application
  • Not recommended for use with tubeless rims
  • 4.5 / 5.0

    Quality product that does its job
    I installed on a Velocity commuter rim. The rim was well made and didn’t have many sharp angles but I still installed the tape on the rim. The tape went on smooth and holds its position with no bubbling or other installation issues.
    JensonUSA is the bike shop I frequent most because of the price, selection, shipping offers (usually 2 days with the package arriving before noon), and return policy.

    Good stuff
    There are a lot of options available on rim tape, but I like Velox. I can usually reuse it for a while and it doesn't deteriorate like some of the rubber or plastic ones.

    I've been using this...
    I've been using this tape since shortly after I gave up on tubulars. Plastic rim strips can break at the spoke holes, this stuff lasts and keeps the tube from damage from the holes. Some of my wheels have Velox tape on them that is maybe 8-10 years old.

    Velox: nothing beats it
    Velox is the most durable and easiest to install rim tape on the market. In more than a few instances I've transferred strips from wheel to wheel when I had to get the rim replaced. Even with apparently no "stick," when wrapped tight enough, it sticks!

    Here's a fool-proof installation tip: Insert a Bic pen (a screwdriver works too) through the valve hole section, start to lay the tape over the rim bed placing the pen through the valve hole (don't let it slip totally through). This provides an "anchor" for the tape so you can really stretch and align it over the rim bed. When the end of the tape reaches the valve hole again, snip off the excess and smooth everything out with your finger. Voila! Perfectly installed Velox.

    My favorite rim tape!
    I wouldn't use any other rim tape unless I had no choice. It is heavy but hey it's cloth what do you expect. Once installed you don't have to worry about it. Not sure how reusable it is but I did install it and have to remove it and reinstall it (it had nothing to do with the rim tape) and it stuck just fine the second time.
