Use this handy guide to determine what model you'll need.
There are two MTB models of Rimpact, the PRO and ORIGINAL, and one CX Insert. The first step is to decide which will fit your set up based on wheel size and rim internal width. Then scroll down to choose which model you can buy. Tyre size isn't critical in choosing the Insert as you should select the Insert that adequately protects your Rim Width.
24", 26" or 27.5+ & 29+ Wheels?
Then we make a Rimpact ORIGINAL to fit your bike! The larger volume of Plus size tyres allows for a higher total 'ramp up' of pressure thanks to the increased travel of the tyre, mitigating the need for a PRO insert.
27.5", 29" or 29/27.5" Mullet Wheels?
Then you can choose between both ORIGINAL and PRO versions.
The Rimpact CX is your poison, provided your rims are the correct width, check below.
Then Once You Know Which Model(s) You Can Choose...
Validate your choice based on Rim Internal Measurement.
17mm-25mm Rims x 700c
Rimpact CX will allow you to run lower pressures and find grip on those narrow tyres.
33c-45c Tyres only
There is both an ORIGINAL and a PRO version available to fit this rim size.
Coupled with 2.3" Tyres or Bigger
Coupled with 2.6" Tyres or Bigger
Only Rimpact Original Plus is available in this tyre width. The increased air volume and tyre height allows for a steeper ramp up in pressure as the tyre compresses meaning the Original will perform even better in the Plus format.
ORIGINAL OR PRO?
If you are lucky enough to have a bike that can accept both ORIGINAL and PRO based on the checklist above, use this info to help decide which option to go for based on your riding preference.
Or if you are light weight:
Rimpact ORIGINAL is the best option for you. The Insert's light weight and trail chatter absorbing characteristics make it the best choice. You may also want to choose this option if you are a particularly smooth rider who doesn't ever have issues with punctures but rides in more demanding disciplines.
Or If you are of average weight:
Rimpact ORIGINAL or PRO will work great for you. Both will protect you, but the PRO will give you more insurance when you roll the dice. If you don't suffer from Rim Dings or Flats and are only looking for the damping characteristics, go for the ORIGINAL. If you race against the clock or push the envelope, the PRO version is for you.
Or if you are a Heavy Weight:
Rimpact PRO is your poison. Maximum protection against spontaneous tyre deflation. For those who close their eyes when they send it, zero compromises on performance. If you take the fastest line no matter the consequences and lay it all out on race day, or have need to lay off the Christmas Dinners, Rimpact PRO should keep your rims circular.
