Let every ride be Epic!

Rimpact Original Plus MTB tyre inserts give you the confidence to take on any trail, rail every corner, and send the big jumps without fear of damaging your rims or getting a flat.

How is this possible? Rimpact is inserted into the inner core of the tyre, providing a cushioning layer that absorbs trail impacts to protect the rim and stabilise the tyre sidewall minimising tyre roll and burping. This allows you to run lower tyre pressures, permitting the tyre to efficiently conform to trail obstacles increasing tyre traction, while dampening trail vibrations that lead to forearm pump, and reducing the ability for objects to penetrate the tyre causing a flat.

Rimpact inserts are an engineered mountain bike tyre insert manufactured from high density, closed cell and cross-linked polyethylene foam used in the aerospace industry. The result is a lightweight, highly impact absorbent foam insert for tubeless mountain bike tyres that provides the following benefits:

- Dissipates force away from the rim
- Controls rebound increasing traction
- Stabilises sidewalls – reduced tyre roll/burping
- Makes Lower pressures viable
- Dramatically reduces trail chatter

The kit comes with two un-blockable presta valves made of CNC'd aluminium with horizontal air ports. This design ensures the valve will not block even if the insert shifts. They work with sealant injectors, have removable cores and can be run in a regular tubeless setup.

Suitable for rims with an inner diameter of 35mm - 45mm and tyre widths 2.6" - 3.0". It is possible to use the insert with narrower or wider tyre but it will increase the difficulty of fitting. Do not purchase if your rims are outside of this spec. Due to the additional weight and typically wider tyres these inserts are perfect for most eMountain bikes available in Australia

Weight: approx. 138g per insert for 29" and 125g approx. for 27.5".
