    S35 Alloy Wheels - Tubeless Ready?

    I'm waiting for my Ripley to arrive, and it's coming with the Ibis S35 alloy wheelset. Anyone know if these wheels come ready for tubeless, or will I need to tape them up and get a set of valves?

    Ibis website says tubeless. So, they should already be ready for tubeless.

    I would call whoever you bought it from specifically and ask.

    When I purchased my mojo 3 from Jensen it came speced with Stan's Flow wheels. Ya, the Stan's who actually invented or at least made popular tubeless wheels. Anyway it came with tubes and no tubeless valve stems... go figure.

    The complete bikes with S35s come taped with valves. Not sure on the wheelset alone. I will say, in the spectrum of OE wheels, these are the nicest Iíve used.

    my Ripmo came with S35 Alloy wheels. Shop set them up tubless, but I am not sure how they came to the shop.


    Actual weight however is heavier than stated in table. Mine were 931 Front and 1063 rear on my scale for a total of 1994 grams That was XD driver, taped, with valves and normal dust from the trails. No mud.

    Sub-2k grams for a OE alloy wheelset that's stiff and can take a beating isn't bad in my book.
