CushCore® (Patent Pending) is an engineered foam insert that mounts inside a mountain bike tire. It divides the tire roughly in half, with CushCore next to the rim and a tuneable air pocket under the tread. It stabilises the tire casing while allowing the tread patch to remain flexible and sensitive. It provides incredible traction. It reduces impact force by 50%. It radically changes the way your bike interacts with the ground.
CushCore is compatible with your current tubeless tires and rims
Fits tire widths 2.1 - 2.6"
Fits rims with internal width 22 - 35mm
If your wheels are not tubeless ready, rim sealing tape will be required
We recommend the use of tubeless tire sealant (such as Stan's®) with CushCore
Installation with certain tire & wheel combinations may require two people - one to work the tire levers, and another to hold the tire bead in the drop centere of the rim. Wire bead downhill tires are most likely to need extra help
Weight: CushCore weighs about as much as a standard butyl inner tube
Potential weight reduction offset by using lighter tires and rims: 100-700 grams
CushCore inserts are extremely durable. Our foam is engineered to withstand repeated pounding and flexing without degradation. It does not absorb liquid and is not affected by tire sealant. Service life will depend on your riding frequency, terrain, etc.
