Tubeless road tyres offer some attractive benefits and are becoming increasingly popular for people upgrading their wheel. Stans No Tubes have several options in the market. The Alpha Pro wheelsets have 18 front and 24 rear Aerolite spokes laced into DT Swiss Ti hubs and their ZTR tubeless clincher rims. They use two layers of plastic tape to seal the rim well and o-ringed valve stems are installed ready for tubeless use, though you can use the wheels with tubes if you need. The 400 Pro wheelset tips the scales at a dainty 1,330g.
Their Alpha Comp Wheels use DT 3.3 hubs with 28 DT Supercomp spokes in the front and 32 in the rear wheel for a total weight of 1,460g.
Both sets use the same rim profile with 17mm internal rim width and 22.6mm depth, though the Pro rims have an extra channel and stronger internal rim design.
Alpha Comp $899
Alpha Pro $1,299
