The rim tape helps to prevent the spokes sticking into the inner tube

The rim tape is made for Brompton by Herrman - a Finnish company (if you are interested there is even more info below)
Here's our home-made video on fitting the rim tape
Here is what they have to say about the tape:
HERRMANS® HPP (yellow) rim tape utilises HERRMANS® new revolutionary Wing technology (W-Tech).
With W-Tech the new rim tape profile is very flexible and the rim tape is easier to mount on the rim, so that it is centred better and smoothly follows the rim profile.
The rim tape does not lose its critical rigidness (despite the wings), giving a high pressure resistance.
High pressure tyres demand strong rim tape to protect the inner tube. Too stiff rim tapes will not follow the U-shaped rim profile, making a correct assembly of the rim tape, and tyre combination, more difficult.
With too loose rim tapes the pressure will push down the rim tape into the spoke holes, reducing the protective lifespan of the rim tape.
The W-tech rim tapes have good flexibility in the cross section, for easy correct mounting, and at the same time retaining rigidness in the centre, for high pressure protection.
HPP is made out of polyurethane, extremely light and can stand a maximum pressure of 8 bars or 116 psi.
The rim tapes have upgraded pinch resistance for long riding sessions.
The Brompton rim tape has a valve hole for rims with the American valve (Schrader valve) 9mm size
