Rated 2 out of 5 by eRider moves about and gets under tyre bead
I was looking for some tight fitting rim tape that wouldn't move out of position once fitted. This stuff should be called put-on, not snap-on! It is not very tight fitting and moves easily from side to side, so when fitting the tyre it moves and gets up under the tyre bead and prevents the tyre from seating correctly (just like most other rim tapes do) - surely someone can solve this age-old problem?

Rated 5 out of 5 by 0Fin0 Works very well
This Rim Tape works perfectly, it protects the innertube from the nipples even at high pressure, so far the tape has held up well and the nipples don't poke up much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent for MTB tube rims
I spend ages looking for a suitable rim tape for my tubular MTB Rims. And I am glad I chosen this Ritchey rim tape in the end. When you first look at it, it looks cheap like a softer version of a nylon strip found on packaging. Then you have doubt thinking is it going to slip round the rim as its made from some kind of woven nylon making tube fitting difficult, but that is not so. Its a bit fiddly to start with but once its on, it fits nice and tight with no movement along the rim. You can move it a little side to side to center it, that all. Use a pensil to keep it in line with the valve hole on the rim. It does stretch a little, just enough for you to get it over the rim wall. So make sure you get it on right the first time with the holes align.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Достойная лента
Лента мне очень понравилась. Она очень плотная. На обод оделась легко (здесь писали что с трудом натягивается на обод - я этого не заметил, возможно ребятам попался залежавшийся экземпляр). Можно смело тянуть её без опаски что она порвется. Увереннно сидит на ободе, не ерзает. Из-за своей повышенной плотности в дырочках практически не просаживается. Имеет слегка шероховатую поверхность из-за теснённого рисунка, что, вероятно, будет препятствовать скольжению камеры внутри покрышки.
Из минусов можно заметить в определенной степени малую эластичность. Из-за чего я бы не советовал использовать эту лента с Latex камерами (к ним больше всего подойдет лента DT-Swiss)
Выделяю эту ленту как одну из самых качественных, своих денег стоит однозначно.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Love those
I have those on both of my main bikes, my commuter and my cheap as chips racer, I've had them for about six months on my MTB and they work brilliantly, and on my racer I've always had problems with punctures due to the cheapness of the rims (they had very rough spoke holes that tore through the rimtape and through the tubes) but that is not a problem any more...and they seem to be very durable, the ones on my mtb are only 6 motnhs old...but they have taken alot of punishment

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous I'm a novice when it comes to bike repairs but these things were so easy to put on I was impressed.
I was expecting a lot of hassles lining it up with the hole and just getting it to sit right but I had no problems whatsoever. Now let's see how they last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Плотная и крепкая
Очень крепкая и мало тянущаяся лента - я с трудом надел её на обод внешней шириной 32 мм. Помогло непродолжительное отмачивание ленты в горячей воде. Сидит надёжно и плотно, но снимается легко - отверткой сквозь дырку для ниппеля. Толщина около 0.5 мм, вес одной штуки около 17 грамм. Хорошая вещь!
Very sturdy and a little stretching tape - I could hardly put it on the outer rim width of 32 mm. It helped for a short soak in hot water tape. Sits firmly and snugly, but easily removed - a screwdriver through a hole for the nipple. Thickness of 0.5 mm, the weight of one piece of about 17 grams. Good thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Perfect
This product is great, doesn't stick on so can be removed and changed with no hassle at all and won't leave any residue on your rims. Simple to fit and not had any problems with mine for the past 6 months in snow, mud etc etc. Once you buy it you won't buy any other rim tapes!!
