I have been running the Tubliss 2.0 System on my KTM dirt bikes for years.
If you are serious about riding gnarly single track, I would recommend investing in a set a Tubliss.
You have been there…clear out on a trail MILES from anywhere and anything and your bike has a flat tire….

Flat tires on your KTM can ruin the entire riding trip. While I like adventure and issues are part of the adventure.
I try to be as prepared as possible and I don’t leave home without the proper gear to fix flat tires and so should you.
Luckily you only need a few things.
Here is what you need to bring with you to fix Tubliss
- ATV Tire plug kit (Click here to see what I am talking about)
- High and low pressure bike tire pump (something like this)
That’s really only what I bring.
If I plan on going for a REALLY long ride or on a Multi day riding trip I will also include
- Replacement 21″ high pressure inner tube (Check these out)
- Replacement 18″ high pressure inner tube (click here to see what I am on about)
- Tire spoons
I will admit I have NEVER had to replace the high pressure tube bladder….Also, not a single one of my friends have had to either.
I use Tubliss on my KTM not only to get rid of having to fix flats and pinched flats but for a much better reason.
The traction you get with using Tubliss on your KTM is HUGE
In my opinion this is the number one reason why you should run Tubliss on your KTM bike.
You can have the best bike in the world but if you don’t have any traction…..your going to get nowhere fast.
I run Tubliss at 5-7 PSI on my KTM
This is for both the front and rear tires. In the past I ran 8-10 PSI because I was scared of breaking something.
Last riding season we talked to the owner of Tubliss and he told us to try a lower pressure.
In fact he said go all the way to 0 PSI and start adding air until you don’t like the feel of the tires the back it off a bit.
When doing this I liked the tires to be around 5-7 PSI.
I have a buddy that races a Kawasaki KX450 and runs his Maxxis tires at 0 PSI……
I do have another friend that doesn’t like to run 5-7 PSI in his front tire….That is the great thing with Tubliss you can choose which ever PSI works best for you or the situation. Mousse bibs you get what you get….
Here is the list of bikes that I have run Tubliss on
- 2008 KTM 250 XC
- 2013 KTM 250 XC
- 2015 KTM 300 XC
- 2016 KTM 250 XCF
- 2017 KTM 300 XC
- 2017 KTM 250 XC
If you are thinking about adding Tubliss to your KTM….don’t wait
