three ways CushCore reduces rolling resistance:

  1. CushCore suspension benefits help preserve forward momentum through rough terrain

  2. CushCore allows riders to run tires with fast-rolling, supple casings without compromising lateral stability or impact protection

  3. Tires fitted with CushCore can be run at lower pressures for floatation on sand and other soft soils

 

lab test results

Wheel Energy Of of Finland, the international leader in bicycle tire rolling resistance testing, compared CushCore to a standard tubeless tire in simulated off-road terrain.  They found that CushCore lowered rolling resistance by 3.2% at 25 psi.

Standard tubeless tire: 37.1 watts
CushCore equipped tire: 35.9 watts
Energy savings: 1.2 watts (3.2%)
