TCS 2.0 creates a more robust, easily installed and dependable tubeless system. A recessed channel along the center of TCS 2.0 rims allows installation of the all-new Solid Strip, which prevents tubeless tape from sagging at the spoke holes, and results in a smooth, consistent interface between the tire and rim. The smooth interface prevents air from escaping at each spoke hole and therefore reduces air requirements when mounting tires, which can now easily be done using a standard floor pump. The durable Solid Strip also eliminates any possibility of a broken spoke puncturing the tubeless tape and causing the system to lose air rapidly.
