I've fitted several sets of Tubliss, and I run them on my 690 and enduro bike.
Running on the rear of a 690, you need a minimum tyre wall thickness of 7mm. The C02 has a very thin wall yet it is over 7mm and seals ok. Definitely torque the locknut up to 15Nm though.

My only Tubliss "puncture". A snakebite to the front tyre during the Beacons Rally. Finished the lap on a flat; plugged and reinflate in minutes. Repairs have held up fine, with no air loss. (On my exc btw). Image

As has been said the tubliss can struggle to squize against the tyre to keep it in place.

Here is a video of someone who says somewhere in the video if I remember correctly that he uses a cheap hard china rear tyre which had a bigger sidewall bead so the tubliss clamps it tight.

Also has good opinion on where the 690/701 stands in the endure / trail riding world.
