CushCore Tire Insert - Review
@maglor: First don't apologise for the long reply! It is always better than short and pointless! haha Well if it works for you great! I just love the advantages of the insert system. The added grip even with a less grippy compound compared to DH super soft durometer is mind blowing! I can ride offcamber roots and rocks like never before! Before I was running super gravity tires with tubes and going to single ply tires with procore I still lost weight off the bike. I heard so many nightmare stories from friends that I never tried tubeless for mountainbiking. Now all that was great but I really appreciated not having my back wheel full of flat spots at the end of every lift season! I am interested in cushcore as an alternative to procore if I upgrade to some bigger wheels next year seeing as it is slightly cheaper.

CushCore Tire Insert - Review
Singleply casing tire + insert is lighter than DH tire with tube. It also allows you to run less tire pressure and thus gives you more grip. Why is it better than a DH tire setup as tubeless? Because it a) prevents burping since it holds the tire to the rim more securely and b) prevents pinch flats even if that is harder to get with thicker DH casing tires I was running DH tire with tubes for year and though flatting was not so common I still managed to damage rims, especially rear ones. After two years running singleply tires with schwalbe procore system I know I will never go back! Way more grip=way more confidence, no more flats ever and it is lighter!

If you destroy DH casings then there isn't really a burlier tire to mount is there? I run inserts so I don't have to run DH tires and still have a lighter wheelset that I can hit the rough stuff hard with the benefit of having more grip!

Hasn't happened with my procore system and I have had it now for 2 years!!! Loads of grip, no more dualply tires needed and the confidence to smash into anything!

I've been on 1x8 since the 90s. The difference today is that I got a 40T cog so now have a 11-40T cassette.

Best eMTB I've seen yet! Would love to try the 1400mm wheelbase version! Getting close to MX bikes in wheelbase there!

Maxxis, Schwalbe and Kenda Roll Out New Tires - Eurobike 2017
it is like the wide rim fashion has been done before. The difference is that today's tires and rims are way lighter than their equivalents from back in the days.
