About Stan's NoTubes

Today, riders and racers around the world rely on the tubeless technology Stan developed, and our sealant has been honored as one of the most important innovations in the history of cycling. “The First Name in Tubeless” is more than just marketing to us. It’s who we are.  We also continue to push the development of high-performance tubeless systems for road bikes, offering both carbon fiber and aluminum rims specially designed to handle the higher pressures of tubeless road tires.

Our newest asymmetric rim designs took years to develop, and bring Stan's legendary ease of inflation and reliability to offset rims that allow for stronger overall wheel builds and in most cases a single spoke length for both front and rear wheels. By focusing on details like this, we continue to improve tubeless performance for all riders.
