As long as we have been riding bikes, a far too common problem has plagued the industry. For decades, toddlers on their first trikes to world class racers charging up mountains have had to contend with the scourge that is the flat tire. In 2001, Stan Koziatek along with his wife Cindy founded Stan’s NoTubes and set out to solve this universal issue. With the simple belief that bike tires could perform better without inner tubes, they started the tubeless revolution.
Stan’s Tubeless System ditches the inner tube in favor of a liquid sealant, creating a tire that seals itself almost instantly. This alone would be an industry altering development, but in addition the Stan’s NoTube System results in a lighter wheel, while improving traction and control, and tires that roll faster. By being more reliable, lighter and more importantly faster, Stan’s NoTubes has become the go to option for mountain bikers. Downhill, Enduro, Cyclocross, or Single Track, Stan’s influence can be felt at the highest level of all disciplines.
Just as in the early days, when their sealant formula was worked out in the backroom of a car wash, Stan’s NoTubes continues to develop revolutionary products. As tubeless setups have taken over the market they have positioned themselves at the forefront of rim design. The same guiding principles of improvement through innovation guides them today. Shifting focus to carbon fiber wheelsets with improved impact resistance, Stan’s NoTubes has solidified its position as an industry leader.
