Anyone have any experience with the XC cushcore?
I am on the heavier size at 220 without gear. I have a 160/150 27.5 bike with an older set of enve hoops. The inner width is about 27mm. I usually run 2.4 tyres. I was thinking about going for the XC inserts. I'm not too hard on rims, I'm more interested in the tyre stabilizing and suspension dynamics of the inserts. If all I'm giving up is some rim impact resistance, I'm ok with that. If it doesn't provide nearly the same suspension dynamics and tyre stability, I'd probably just go for the pro inserts.
Anyone ridden both and able to better delineate the differences?

Check out NSMB.com, they had an article about this exact topic today.

Thanks for pointing that out. It was a good review (as always from Nsmb) but they reviewed them in bigger tyres than they were designed for. I'm glad they answered that question, that they aren't as good in large vol tyres as pro.

I'm curious if they perform as well in a 2.3 as the pro does in a 2.5 or 2.6? Anyone have any experience using them in a tyre size appropriate for the Xc insert?
