Why Tubeless Ready?

Bontrager Tubeless Ready technology provides all the performance advantages of a tubeless system without the usual weight penalty. It’s a better way to go tubeless.

How are Bontrager’s Tubeless Ready tires different? Instead of building a heavy butyl liner into the tire, Bontrager Tubeless Ready (TLR) tires work in conjunction with a thin, glycol-based sealant (called Super Juice) to achieve the same air-tight, bead-to-rim interface as standard tubeless tires without the added weight. In fact, Bontrager’s Tubeless Ready system is as much as 100g lighter per tire than standard tubeless tires. That’s nearly half a pound of rotational weight savings. Simply put, Bontrager Tubeless Ready technology provides all the performance advantages of a tubeless system without the usual weight penalty. It’s a better way to go tubeless.

Tubeless Ready Weight Summary

Comparison of Tire weights
Tire
Tube
Sealant
Super Juice

A | Standard UST Tubeless Setup without Sealant

Tire (725g) = Heavy

B | Tire with Tube

Tire (570g) + Tube (130g) = 700g. Prone to pinch flats and punctures at lower air pressure.

C | Lightweight Racing Tire with Latex

Tire (575g) + Latex Sealant (100g) = 675g. Heavy. Poor rim-to-tire seal.

D | Bontrager Tubeless Ready

Tire (575g) + Super Juice (65g) = 635g. Light, secure system performance.
