The Formula Pro Tubeless X-Guard is the strongest tire in the Formula Pro series with wider tread and extra puncture-proof performance. The all new X-Guard Belt ++ covers the tire sidewall from bead to bead with a 40x40tpi anti-puncture protection barrier.
- WX-Guard double-layer bead-to-bead puncture protection
- The wide cross-sectional shape provides improved rolling resistance
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
