I want to run these tires tubeless but do not see anything on them that says "tubeless ready". I looked on the site & didn't see anything that said they are or they're not.
I'm pretty sure I can't but figured I'd ask anyway.

I ran these tubeless last year on Bontrager Rythym Comp Wheels. I used the Bontrager strip and Stans. They aired up great with a compressor and held seal excellent. The worst problem was removing them. The bead just stuck to that rim strip.

Yes, they work well tubeless. I run a crossmark on the rear of both my 29ers tubeless on a stans flow. Raced one the entire year, trained a lot on the other (rigid/ss)... zero problems. I'm pretty sold on the crossmark as a rear tire, running tubeless the traction is actually very good while still being fast.

Yeah, they don't (that I know of) have a tubeless version for 29 yet. I would be nice. I'd go for a little tougher sidewall for sure. But I've been running them for over a year and think -- like others are reporting -- it's a great tubeless rear tire for what I do. I like the speed, and don't have traction issues in mostly semi-desert riding here in Western Colorado. Though I've scuffed through the sidewalls of at least one of them.

They have "too many" small knobs "too closely" spaced to make a good snow tire, but I've using them in snow and they seem fine.

But yeah. They set up tubeless very nicely on Stan's or Bontrager Rhythm rims.

Have fun!

I mounted them up today...WOW, that was the easiest "tubeless" tire I've mounted so far. Both front & rear went on & sealed right away. About 5 hours later they still have the same air pressure:thumbsup: The real test is tomorrow when I spin them.
