Is there a big difference in the compound/side wall strength of the tube and tubeless version of the MotoZ tractionator adventure?

From MTB experience, the tubeless versions are more expensive with a thicker sidewall. Is this the case as well?

Just about to fit mine after waiting almost a month! When Sharwoods eventually got it they had ordered an Adventure instead of Desert despite me clearly indicating more than once what I wanted  :o .  I must say that the Adventure looks very nice as well but is like at least R500 more than the Desert! WTF?

My tractionator adventure arrived yesterday. I plan on picking it up today. I paid R1600, but I realised today that it is the tubed version. I believe the tubeless version is around R2k for the rear.

Nope, I have normal tubes fitted with sealant in them. Done 5000 km with them with no issues/punctures. The TKC80 is finished now.


I just wonder if there is any benefit ito puncture protection due to a thicker sidewall on the tubeless motoz tires. Even when running them with tubes.

You only get a 90/90 -21 and 150/70 -18 in the Tubeless Desert.
