Stan's NoTubes Standard Tubeless System $64.00
Going tubeless doesn't have to entail buying special wheels, and in most cases doesn't have to entail tubeless tires. This is the quick 'n easy way to convert standard rims to tubeless. The Stan's No tubes Standard Tubeless Kit looks like one of those things invented in the garage by a guy with too much time on his hands. So what? Tinkerers have made the bike world so darn interesting, and there is a beauty associated with any garage solution -- so utilitarian, so deceptively simple, so appropriately MTB.
This Standard Kit has everything needed to convert one 26in, cross-country wheelset to tubeless. It includes two molded rim strips with Presta valve cores, one pint of Stan's tire sealant with 60g scoop and a spout, and one 10-yard roll of rim tape. Detailed instructions are also included; we recommend following them to the letter. If there's a concern about sealant, buy an extra quart now to recover from those initial screwups without sidelining the wheels and your hard work. The Stan's No Tubes Standard Tubeless Kit should work with most cross-country style 26in MTB rims.

Works exactly as advertised, check out the Stan's website and watch the videos! Follow the instructions carefully and don't get in a hurry.
I can run as low as 30psi for massive traction, and not a single flat. Not a single burp. One small problem - they will leak down slowly, after a month (January) of sitting, they lost air down to under 20psi, but I always check air before every ride anyway.
I've helped 5 others install Stans, only one we couldn't get to work - one well used Kenda just wouldn't seal at the rim, replaced that tire and problem went away.
Even at the same pressure, you can feel a more supple ride and less rolling resistance.
Saved about half a pound off my bike!
Don't forget to add more sealant every six months or so, not sure if it dries up or gets "used up" but it slowly vanishes - just shake the wheel and listen for splashing sounds
