“To anyone that thinks the whole insert thing is just about keeping air in the tires, think again. CushCore is the single most impressive thing I’ve put on my bike when it comes to improving ride quality and handling when really pushing my bike on rugged terrain.”
— Jeff Brines, Vital MTB Product Tester


The Problem

The problem with pneumatic tire systems, whether tube or tubeless, is that they act like air springs.  They bounce and deflect off obstacles because they provide no damping of compression or rebound forces.

The solution

CushCore® (Patent Pending) is an engineered foam insert that mounts inside a mountain bike tire.  It divides the inside of the tire in half with air directly underneath the tread, and the CushCore insert next to the rim.  They work together as a spring and damper – In other words an Inner-Tire Suspension System®.

For me Cushcore is one of those products that seems to be increasingly rare; it has increased my stoke for riding and for my bike. Given the choice I can’t imagine riding without it for the foreseable future.

Once you ride with CushCore, you won’t want to ride without.
