At Rimpact, we believe that our inserts are best experienced as a pair, click here to read why, but we understand not everyone needs or wants to purchase a set; this product contains 1x Original Insert only, so is a great way to get your hands on either a replacement or upgrade for your current setup.
Rimpact's key benefit is in it's vibration damping qualities. Most of the vibration felt through the bike comes from the front wheel, through the fork and into your hands. This makes running Rimpact in the front wheel a necessity and will significantly improve the feel of your bike over rough terrain. It will also reduce fatigue over longer descents making running an insert in the front a must! We highly recommend you buy a set of inserts for these reasons.
Please Note: There is a 'No Valve' product option available in the drop down menu that ships without a valve for those who are replacing an insert and already own a pair of Rimpact or Peaty's Unblockable Valves. Rimpact must be used in conjunction with our valve design or an insert compatible valve such as Peaty's MK2 valves.
If Peaty's Valves are chosen, please indicate which colour you'd like in the comments box at check out. Colour choices are Bourbon, Turquoise, Violet, Mango, Silver, Navy, Matte Slate, Matte Emerald, Matte Punch and Red. Peaty's Valves are ONLY sold in Pairs.
Suitable for rims with an inner width of 23mm - 35mm and tyre widths 2.3" - 2.6". It is possible to use the insert with a narrower or wider tyre but it will increase the difficulty of fitting significantly.
Use about 25% more sealant than recommended on the bottle to ensure the extra surface area of the insert is coated with plenty of fluid to spare. Our inserts are made from closed cell foam and cannot absorb liquid, however some sealant will cling to the outside of the insert requiring a slightly higher dosage. It can be injected through Rimpact Valves but is better poured directly into the tyre.
Weight: approx 95g per insert for 29", 90g approx for 27.5" and 85g approx for 26".
Please follow installation instructions prior to fitting/removing, there is a QR code on the box that links you to the Installation page on our website.
Disclaimer: It is not advised to run air pressures outside that of the tyre manufacturers recommendations. Failure to do so may result in injury or the premature failure of the bicycle. Rimpact does not accept any responsibility for misuse of the Rimpact insert or improper installation. Rimpact Inserts are designed to work WITH Rimpact unblockable valves.
Not included: Tyres, Wheelset.
