Behind the behind the scenes.
Behind every good road tire, there's either a good tube or a bit of goo — but they can't carry the weight alone. HED's Rim Tape provides even more support from even further behind the tubes or sealant that are already behind the scenes.

For tubeless installation: when installing second layer of tape, i found it impossible to remove the bubbles. Will this work if it has bubbles?
For tubeless, will one layer of tape work or do i need 2? 700x25 tubeless ready rims, using 23mm tubeless tire.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this tape to convert my HED Ardennes wheels over to tubeless. The tape is 25mm wide, exactly the width of the OUTSIDE of my HED rims. Competitive Cyclist should mention this in the item details. This tape should be labeled as MTB tubeless tape, because it is the same as my Stan's tape used on the mountain bikes.
I'm thinking of getting this for my Reynolds Assault tubeless rims. A) Will this seal the spoke holes enough to get a tire to mount?, and B) Is one roll enough to tape 2 wheels?
This will work for your Reynolds rims; that said, the wheels should have come with some blue rim tape which is what they recommend using for tubeless setup. We do not have this tape, but Reynolds does sell it on their site.
Please let me know if I can offer any additional assistance.

Is this tape appropriate for the 25mm Ardennes+ rims?
The HED Rim Tape should work great on your 25mm Ardennes wheels. Feel free to shoot me any additional questions directly.
