Brompton rim tape - for all Brompton wheels

Suitable for all Brompton 16 inch wheels

Note: The rim tape says 18 inch ... this is the correct size for the Brompton wheel - if you are using the tape for another smaller 16 inch wheel (not all wheels described as 16 inch are the same size - the Brompton for example is an ETRTO size of 349) then this may be too big

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

Snap-on - so it's one piece you conveniently slide onto the whee; / rim without having to cut or glue

Colour: Yellow

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

Made in Finland




I was a bit worried from reading some of the reviews here that the tape would be too big for my 16" wheels, but it fitted perfectly. You have to pull it a bit (akin to stretching a rubber band over something) with both your hands, but that just means it then fits snugly. It is slightly wider (a few mm) than the old blue rim tape, which in comparison wasn't as wide as it should have been. Very happy.

Good quality.

Little tricky to fit, highly recommended though.


    Nice rim tape but actually 18in.

    Although specified for Brompton wheel it was too big in diameter as actually for an 18in wheel. Not a problem. I just cut the tape, burned a hole for the valve with a soldering iron and overlapped with the original hole.

    Not 16 inches!!

    I ordered this tape for a 16” wheel, and when it arrived I tried to fit it but it was far too big. It is then when I saw 18” clearly written in the tape.
    How can this be sold as “16 inches”??

    Fits better than the old blue tape

    Bought this to go with a new double wall rim. This seems to fit better than the old blue tape did on the single wall rim. Also easier to get a Marathon+ tyre back on.

      Does this rim tape also work for the older single wall rims which originally came with a narrow blue tape? Answer:
      Yes - it works for all Brompton wheels - it is a big improvement
