The non visible component, but with a huge effect. A missing or badly chosen rim tape is the cause of many punctures. For rims with spoke holes it is particularly important to use a tape that remains stable under pressure and one which covers the entire rim base. The fabric-reinforced Continental EasyTape was specially developed for use under high pressure conditions. Various widths allow a perfect fit to be achieved in all common rim types. The high pressure (HP) version for racing bikes can withstand pressures up to 220 PSI without deformation. Its wafer-thin profile also allows the tire to be mounted much easier.
