I bought this insert for my rear tyre after denting the rims on my new bike. Most of the trails I ride are very rocky and I want some added protection without having to pump my rear tyre to 30psi and bounce off everything. I installed them yesterday afternoon and it took less than 5 mins to put the tyre (2.6 Hans dampf) on and seat the bead, if you follow the instructions on the rimpact website and know how to use tyre levers properly it's a breeze.
I dropped the pressure in my rear tyre to 26psi today and went for a ride and I'm seriously impressed by this insert! The back wheel had much more grip around berms and didnt bounce off rocks and roots as much.
Can't comment on rim protection because I didn't hit anything square on today but the foam does feel quite dense and of high quality. The tubeless valves are also very nice. I really like the feel of the insert and may end up getting one for the front tyre because these are so cheap.
