I have a Woom bike coming for my granddaughter and the bike has
“Superlight woom OFF DISCO TEC double-chamber aluminum rims”
That are drilled for schrader valves but I want to set it up tubeless with presta valves.
What are the best presta valves to use?

A presta valve will almost certainly work. If you have any on hand, throw it in, tighten the nut down and make a judgement call.

I had the same thought on one of my son's earlier bikes...it came taped and ready to go, but had rims drilled for schrader valves. I thought I better get some schrader valves, but I tested put some standard Stans presta ones and they were fine...for years, until he outgrew the bike. They're still fine, but the bike sits in storage.

Anyway, give em a shot. They'll probably work fine. If you don't even have presta ones laying around then yeah, maybe get the schrader ones. I honestly dont think you'll need to though and presta ones will have more use than just these wheels in the long run, so there's also that.
