Vespa Tubeless Wheel Rim
Detailed Product Description
Another world first from scootRS: Tubeless rims for classic scooters.
What's so special about a tubeless rim? A rim that requires a tube, as all Vespa rims do, means your tire suddenly and dangerously blows out when punctured. On a tubeless rim, however, you merely have a slow air leak, as on a car. No blowout means no danger.
The rims are powdercoated. Silver or white available.
These quotes are for our similar Lambretta tubeless rim:
* I've just used ScootRS rims for [riding to] Austria,2,300+ miles up and down mountains, along motorways and hairpins and in all sorts of conditions/weather with no probs. Haven't used any kind of tyre seal but might do over the winter. Definitely recommend them to anyone.
* I've done 1,200 miles up to now with no problems. I have inserted Ultraseal in the tyres as well.
Or as reviewed in magazines:
"They have proved to be very good quality. The tire seems to seat satisfactorily against the rim and the wheel itself is both sufficiently true and a much better fit on a Lambretta hub than many of the poor-quality pattern Lambretta split rims currently available. [... ] [T]he ScootRS wheels appear to be a major advance in safety for Lambretta owners. "
UPDATE: This is our 3rd tubeless rim design and incorporates several safety and strength improvements based upon our experience to date. See the quotes and Scootering magazine articles about our world first classic tubeless rim design (Lambretta and Vespa use the same basic design, only fitting differently).
Wondering about the stainless steel version we discussed before? There are no stainless rims made for any other vehicles and after extensive research we concluded that the susceptibility of stainless to crack due to hardness and welding/corrosion issues was too dangerous for this application, as nice as stainless looks. (In fact, the nicer it looks, the worse the problem. ) Better safe than sorry. (If you're really set on stainless and would like to be a guinea pig, we can always make a special show-only order for you. )
Beware of knock-offs with no safety research.
