Cream coloured tubeless rim tape (Hunt) recall

Recall date26 May 2017
ProductCream coloured tubeless rim tape
Pack size
Batch codesHunt wheelsets delivered between May 2016 and May 2017
ProblemThe rim tape can deform over prolonged periods
Further information

Products affected:

  • Hunt cream coloured tubeless rim tape for bicycle wheels
  • Hunt wheels sold pre-fitted with only cream coloured rim tape
  • Hunt have become aware of a safety case affected the rim tape used on some Hunt wheelsets delivered between May 2016 and May 2017 and cream coloured rim tape sold separately during this period.

This issue affects wheels fitted with just cream-white rim tape only.  It is possible, over prolonged periods of use and under high tyre pressures, for the tape to deform until it makes contact with the spokes inside the rim wall, which can cause the rim tape to puncture and the tyre lose pressure.  This can happen both when using inner tubes or when using the wheels with a tubeless set-up.  As with any other puncture, if the tyre loses pressure rapidly it can pose a risk of serious or fatal injury. 

How to check if your wheels are affected:

  • Release all of the pressure from the tyre
  • With the pressure released from the tyre, push the wall of the tyre inwards away from the edge of the rim until you can see the rim tape underneath
  • If the rim tape is bronze/orange coloured, either bronze tape directly over the rim or bronze tape over a layer of cream-white tape then you do not need to take any action.  You can re-inflate your tyres and continue using your wheels as usual
  • If the rim tape is cream/white coloured then you will need to order a free roll of bronze tape to apply to your wheelset.

If you require a roll of bronze rim tape, contact along with your address and Hunt will send one out to you free of charge.
