Mr Wolf Banger Tire Insert - First Ride
I had big problems with rim punctures on my rear wheel as I'm riding very hard over rocks and roots on a hardtail (27,5+). So I decided to develope a foamsystem by my own for my rear wheel. The mainproblem was that the tire sealing always blocked up the valve cause of the foam theres no space for the sealant to flow like in a normal tubeless tire. You got the same problem also with only 20ml of sealant. I don't know how they solved this problem. On my question they responded you can also drive without sealant but that makes no sense for me cause you would lose air all the time (even if the rim is new) or maybe the special foam is closing the hole? For me this bangersystem would be too weak anyway as I was looking for a very strong protection. I'm riding almost every day and it took me two months and three tries to find the perfect solution. I tested the system extra hard, so I was jumping extra high into roots and rocks to see if it's possilble to get punctures on the rim. I paied around 10-15 € for the foam and it took around 1-2 hours to cut it. I don't feel any difference of suspension or performance. If there's a lot of interest I'll show pictures or even make a tutorial.
