All,

I have a set of Bora 50 and am debating whether I should explore alternatives.

First, I really do like my Bora a lot -- mine are the newer 2016 model with 17mm inner width. However, I am 100% tubeless on all my bikes and have been using my Bora for tubeless set-ups; currently, have a pair of Panaracer Evo3 25mm tubeless tires on them. Obviously, Bora is not specified as tubeless wheels and I'm not sure if I should be concerned for the sake of safety. That said, the Panaracer's tire beads are so good that even when there is 0 PSI in the tires, they stay on the Bora.

Any input/thought is appreciated. Thanks much.

Personally, I don't think there's a better wheel out there than the new Boras, at any price. I run the tubular version, am not a fan of tubeless and I'd run clinchers before tubeless, but if you're getting along fine with them and like them then that's good. But if you want to try some others I'd encourage it. Sounds like your only concern is that the Boras don't specifically state they are tubeless compatible? I don't know if that poses a problem or not, I haven't heard of any issues personally but I don't know anyone who's running them tubeless. Sounds like you're getting a very good seal with yours.

I would not run a tubeless setup on a rim that is not specified for it. Get the Bora tubulars. There are no better wheels out there.
