About Stans NoTubes
Stans NoTubes was established in 2001 by Stan himself. Working in his garage he thought there must be a better way to prevent bicycle flats. Using his exceptional ingenuity, he devised the No Tubes tubeless tire system, which has become the preferred method of converting a standard mountain bike wheel into tubeless worldwide. Before anyone in the industry even thought to consider the concept, Stan extended his brand to encompass tubeless rims with short side walls and his patented bead socket technology. Utilizing the same ingenuity that helped him develop the tubeless system, he has devised a line of tubeless ready rims that maximizes strengths and minimizes weaknesses. Bead socket technology allows for lower sidewall heights, increasing tire traction and decreasing the chance of pinch flats. All Stans rims have something in common that sets them apart from all the others--exceptional and innovative design.
NoTubes was originally known as the secret weapon of elite mountain bike racers. Today our products are being used worldwide by racers, Olympians, and recreational riders for their cost, performance, and weight advantages. Stan is an inventor who is always tinkering and looking for better solutions. When you buy a NoTubes product, you know the idea came directly from Stan Koziatek himself.
