What Are Tyre Inserts & Who Are They For? | Cushcore Wheel & Rim Protection For Mountain Bikers

Published on July 17th 2020


Tyre inserts have become a popular accessory for mountain bikers in recent years, but what exactly do they do and what type of rider will benefit from them the most? We sent pretty much the whole crew to go and find out! With the whole Cushcore Range, we're heading to the hills to ride everything from XC to Enduro, and even Chris from EMBN joined on his E-bike! In association with Cushcore: https://gmbn.eu/Cushcore Tyre inserts allow you to run less pressure in your tyres since you're replacing that air volume with a foam damping agent. This, in turn, makes the tyre feel more controlled when it deforms around terrain and corners and gives you maximum grip. Tyre inserts support your tyres in the corners decreasing 'tyre roll' which can make your bike feel odd in the corners and even if you corner hard enough, burp the bead off of the rim. The final main benefit of a tyre insert is to protect your rim and wheel from impacts that can happen when trail riding. There is a trade-off of adding more weight to your wheel, and in the event of ride ending tyre slice, having to remove an insert trail side can be difficult. Do the positives out-weight the negatives in your mind? They do in ours! Do you need a tyre insert for your riding?
