Nuetech’s TUbliss Gen 2 Bead Lock System is a game-changer for the serious offroad, enduro or trail rider. TUbliss is a full circumference pneumatic motorcycle rim lock that secures the entire bead to the rim – no more standard tubes!
Aside from doing away with conventional tubes, there are a number of other special performance features that make the TUbliss the preferred alternative to regular tubes and have the TUbliss earning the appreciation of racers and riders around the world. Riders that use them love them.
Features of the TUbliss System
- Virtually flat-proof
- Runs cooler
- Quicker acceleration
- No pinched tubes
- Reduces unsprung weight
- Secures tyre bead
- Improved traction
- Variable pressure
Are TUbliss lighter than conventional tubes?
Yes. You can achieve weight savings from about 0.5kg up to about 1.3kg, after replacing a standard or UHD tube with a TUbliss. This weight reduction instantly translates into less rotating weight and increases acceleration. Less unsprung weight allows significant suspension performance gains. Experts say that eliminating a pound (about 0.5kgs) of rotating unsprung weight is equivalent to dropping 5 pounds (about 2.3kgs) of static weight!
No more pinched tube flats!
With no conventional tubes to worry about, you can say goodbye to pinched tubes. Enjoy a stronger, more efficient, and more reliable system. Even if you get a tyre puncture, the bead will stay seated to the rim.
TUbliss are virtually flat-proof
TUbliss Gen 2 really is virtually flat-proof when used with a tire sealant. Sealants can't work on tubes where holes in the rubber stretch and tear. With TUbliss, your sealant works directly on the tyre where it matters. Plus, the design of TUbliss helps keep the tyre on the seated on the bead and sidewalls more stable, virtually making "flat wobbles" a thing of the past. Riders have reported riding longer and harder, completely unaware that they had a tyre puncture.
Improved traction with TUbliss
TUbliss secures the bead so securely that it allows a low tyre pressure for improved straight-line traction without the risk of a pinch flat or tyre bead slippage. With the ability to run such low pressures, you now have a massively increased footprint… hello maximum traction!
TUbliss runs cooler
Without the weight and friction of a conventional tube installed, tyre temperatures are greatly reduced. This also eliminates tyre pressure increases during a ride.
Does TUbliss protect the rim?
Yes. TUbliss protects the rim from dings and dents by holding the tyre firmly and making the sidewalls stay upright and absorb the full impact, unlike the bending and deflection of conventional tubes.

How to install the TUbliss system
To fit you will need
- NEW or previously unmounted tyre
- Drill and 11mm or 7/16" bit
- Fine grit sandpaper
- 3 tyre levers
- Valve core remover
- Armor All or other type of tyre dressing
- Squirt bottle with soapy water
- 14mm wrench
- Small tip knife
- Tyre pump or air source capable of 120psi
- Air gauge with 120psi range
- Torque wrench
Technical fitting tip:
Make sure both valves are completely square coming through the rim. If the high-pressure valve is on an angle you risk tearing the valve stem out of the rubber tube on one side. It can take a couple of attempts to get right but making sure this is right will give you good service life of the tube.
