    I think that’s an excellent concept. Although Im not sure how you are supposed to get to the inner face of the outer chamber for repairs etc.

    I like the idea, but it also sounds expensive, unreliable (well, I guess you’d end up with a normal tyre if it faield). And ‘200g is comparable to a tube at 190g’, who uses tubes anymore? It’s adding a pound of rotating weight.

    Anyone remember THE Eliminator rims? Same idea, but with the 2nd chamber being a plastic tube stuck in the rim, but bombed as it’s about 200g heavier than tubeless.

    I do on my HT as I couldn’t be bothered slinging perfectly good tyres in the bin when I upgraded the wheelset to one that is tubeless capable

    Two valves? How do you align the logo? AAAAAAGH

    if it grips well enough maybe, but enduro races require a lot of riding and extra weight and extra draginess?

    it does remind me a bit of this

    Fair point, but,

    a) you could (probably) convert them anyway
    b) by that argument this is still pointless as you alrready have a tyre.

    a) load of arse ache for a bike that I mostly ride in winter and I’ve never had a puncture on
    b) didn’t say I wanted them, just saying not everyone has gone fully tubeless

    I’m using tubes…..in my ghetto dual chamber setup.
