Downhill and Enduro

Our Pro Insert is Optimised for the Most Demanding Terrain

Dual Density Protection

The Pro Insert offers Industry leading protection, weight and price as shown here. We recommend running the Pro front and rear for DH and Aggressive Enduro riding, especially in a racing setting. The Support and Damping the Pro Insert will provide in the front tyre will help you push the bike harder whilst providing extra protection when you run off line.

Riding Enduro but are looking for the Vibration Damping and Support of an Insert without the full ~150g weight penalty? Consider mixing the set up with an Original Insert up front and a Pro in the Rear for a great balance of protection, weight and support.

Key Attributes

  • Lighter than the competition at just ~150g per Pro insert and ~90g per Original insert. Less rotational weight, faster acceleration, near zero noticeable performance compromise due to added weight.

  • Opportunity to run lighter carcass tyres whilst retaining puncture protection from snakebites. The support and damping the insert offers imitates that of the next carcass thickness above making a lighter tyre viable.

  • Retain control - Both inserts act as dampers within the tyre to reduce the 'wallowing' characteristics of the un-damped air chamber. This results in a more direct and controlled feel when the trail gets rough.

  • Run Flat - The Insert, particularly the Pro will offer the ability to make it to the bottom of the hill during a race run and won't slow you down too much in comparison to running a flat tyre without an insert. This is invaluable if you tear a tyre in the last few corners of a race or are at the early stages of an Enduro weekend and can repair the tyre at the end of the stage.

  • The Pro's Dual Density system provides a compliant ride that isn't so stiff that you deflect off of roots and rocks. The soft top layer retains traction but hardens as excess force is applied in order to stiffen up and offer support and protection as needed.
