Let every ride be Epic!
Rimpact Pro 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 traction, while dampening trail vibrations that lead to forearm pump, while 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 coupled with an Energy Sensitive outer layer. 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 Energy Sensitive layer incorporated into the Pro insert hardens on impact and dissipates extreme forces across itself and the foam below rather than into the rim. Making this Rimpacts most protective insert, perfect for those that want to push the envelope on every ride.
The kit comes with two un-blockable presta aluminium valves 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 23mm - 35mm and tyre widths of 2.3 - 2.6 inches. 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.
Weight: approx 160g per insert for 29", 150g approx for 27.5"

To install Rimpact Inserts you will have to convert the the tyre to a tubeless system if you have not already done so. We recommend Stan's NoTubes sealant and rim tape and offer a 10% discount on sealant purchases at checkout when combined with Rimpact Inserts.
- Controlled rebound increases traction
- Stabilises sidewall for reduced tyre roll
- Makes lower tyre pressures viable
- Does not absorb sealant
Surprisingly easy to install when watching the video and following along, no special tire levers required.
I'm running these on the rear of a steel hardtail and they work really well at damping the short hits down a bit and protecting the tire from flats and the rim from flat spotting on hard rock strikes. I can run the rear tire a few PSI lower than before with no concern for rock strikes and the feel is a lot better on the trail too. win win.
