Expensive Custom Rims no Longer Necessary for Tubeless Tires
Slime SRT Tires Fit Any Standard Rim, Saving Riders Hassles, Money and Boosting Performance
GROVER BEACH, Calif.—Accessories Marketing, Inc. (AMI), creator and manufacturer of Slime® tire sealant products, offers a significant breakthrough for bike enthusiasts—they have perfected the first-ever pre-Slimed tubeless tire for standard rims. The Slime SRT (Standard Rim Tubeless) tires enable riders to convert any standard, aluminum, or composite rim to tubeless, eliminating expensive rims and conversion kits, and they even work on UST rims. Slime Tubeless tires provide exceptional performance versus tires with tubes, and they include built-in flat protection.
The downhill tires feature 2-ply casings and wire beads for optimum durability where it’s needed most. The tires provide the means for bicyclists, both avid and recreational, to gain access to the latest tire technology for a fraction of what it would have cost in the past.
Cegelski reinforced that this product is a huge hit with cyclists and the industry. “This is a reliable, puncture-resistant tubeless tire that fits standard rims with various tread options. It mounts easily and quickly, prevents pinch-flats, and stops 95 percent of flats from punctures because it is pre-filled with Slime.”
The advantage of a tubeless tire is that it allows users to run lower air pressure without worrying about pinch flatting a tube. Riding at a lower tire pressure provides maximum traction due to increased surface area contact with the ground, improving grip and control. The product is easy to install and requires no special tools. It is currently available for 26-inch and 24-inch rims in cross country, free-ride and downhill designs. The product category is being expanded to include road and trekking tires. The MSRP falls in the $59 to $69 range, depending on the tire specs— a significant cost savings compared to conventional tubeless wheel and tire systems.
Slime Tire Sealant with Fibro-Seal™ Technology guarantees it can seal punctures up to 1/8” and can seal multiple punctures concurrently. The Fibro-Seal intertwining and clotting lattice, together with the viscous transportation system, seeks out and tightly packs itself into any puncture area, preventing and repairing flat tires with a flexible, long-lasting plug.
