    what tubeless kit do i need - hope tech enduro wheels 27.5

    I just built myself a new Nomad. I would like to go tubeless but never done it before and my wheels are pretty new on the market?
    and being 27.5 i dont know where to start as i hear some kits are no good with dif wheel types?

    So here we go.
    What tubeless kit do i need for a set of hope tech enduro wheels 27.5 and are my tyres tubeless compatable?

    Tyres are Maxxis Ardent 2.5

    thankyou

    I believe they just need tape and valves. They're 23mm wide internal so a ~25mm wide tape and some tubeless valves will do.

    Pick your choice of tape and valves from Stans, WTB, Velocity, CaffeLatex, OrangeSeal, etc.

    Or DIY with Gorilla Tape or 3M 8898 tape and valves cut out of tubes.

    +1. Valves with removable cores cut from tubes potentially cheaper than valve only, believe it or not, plus you can cut the valve/rim interface on valve to any shape you prefer. For me, I like rectangle over stock Stan's round
