CushCore allows riders to run lighter tires and rims
Since CushCore does not depend entirely on tire casing stiffness and air pressure to control casing flex, the tire and rim do not need to be stiffened, strengthened, or widened to control lateral stability and impact protection.
This makes it possible to use lighter tires without experiencing the tire squirm and split casings we normally associate with more delicate tires. In addition, CushCore's added lateral support reduces the need for oversized rims to control tire roll. Finally, the impact protection provided by CushCore reduces the need for heavy duty rims to resist damage.
