Hello guys,

Which is the lightest tubeless tape out there at the moment? Is there any difference in performance/set up between the different tapes by the way?

Brown packing tape is even lighter than the 4289 and has worked well for me at lite (MTB) pressures.

Other tapes work too. but for me it has been Stan's No Tubes tape since I went tubeless a few years back.

It is 6-7g per wheel (26'') and tape-and-forget type of thing.

Orbea Oiz - xxxx
MSC Koncept Carbon Di2 - 6955g
Leichtkraft Team Carbon - 6868g.

The tapes are all pretty similar in weight unless you are doing one of the "conversion" tapes that use the fat rubber strip too.
