 "Innovation has been part of our production process since day one"

Gotta be honest, nothing really innovative here. Am I missing something?

 They named their sealant after a Banana. Innovation!

 Not a single innovation here as for example the colored protection was invented long before them, and custom top caps, and custom mudguards. The only eye opening here is to see where pinkbike came to, when a brand can make a self proclaimed post as if it was a serious and imparcial review or something....This world is really going to be a pile of shit in a few years...I'm afraid guys!

 It's good these inserts are hidden, I doubt those riders will use them. Cushcore/ Procore are way better and the weight penalty is worth it, even if you already have a DH tire on. This looks like Huck Norris which works for XC but not for rough EWS stages later on in the day where you may not be as sharp anymore and ram into more rocks than optimal.

 @justwaki: Stop talking and posturing like you actually ride aggressively, I remember your old videos where you showed off your grandma level riding skills.

Nico uses these in ews e bike racing, despite your completely illegitimate and unfounded doubts.

 I could be interested in that rim tape if it’s stronger than average. Installing cushcore can get wild to the point that I dislodge my rim tape from its seal and I’m left with a tire that slowly leaks air because the tape is jacked. Understand this is user error by not being able to cleanly install my cushcore, but it’s a bear and I’m willing to bet I’m not the only this happens to.

 @diegosk: yea man. How long does it take to leak out? My rear tire will basically leak out over night. Such a pain in the ass. I'm over cushcore at this point. There's no way to get the tire on without the levers pulling and tearing on the rim tape. It's so f*cking dumb.

 @T4THH: he’s winning in downvotes, what am I doing wrong?

 @skiboot1: I hear you. Some things just should be... easy. It takes some practice and luck to get it right, perhaps they should change tolerances a bit. I hate when sealant is leaking into the rim cavity. For a carbon rim it’s a real problem, especially of one uses alloy nipples. But to be fair... I destroyed some gorilla tape by just installing/ removing DH tires. I think I have a good grip on cushcore though. Maybe I’m just lucky. Procore was waaay worse in my experience. Basterd would never seal around the valve hole right away = small leakage every time until it seals after a couple of days.

 @diegosk: @diegosk: installing Cushcore was a struggle until I watched their video on how to do it properly. I don't mean that to sound snarky...I just was shocked at how easy Cushcore installs were after watching it lol

 @swillett116: really? I’ve heard such horror stories haha, this makes me want to try
  • 1 0
 @nvranka: yes. I installed them for customers all the time. Hated it until I actually took the few minutes to sit down and watch their official install video. After that it was easy breezy and no rim tape is damaged in the process. I barely even need levers... can do most of it manually.
  • 1 0
 @swillett116: very nice. Although I’ve heard of wizards who can put wire bead dh tires on by hand, and I’m over here snapping levers occasionally because even after 12yrs of riding and racing I’m still a buffoon with maintenance.

I’ll give her a go. Interested to see what exo+ with CC feels like vs DD without etc.
  • 1 2
 @nvranka: dependent solely on the rim and tire marriage... I can install a once installed Maxxis DH tires on DT Swiss wider than 25mm with my hands. At least as long as I have water around. It ain't easy but it works my thumbs and them forearms a lot... fresh one needs a bit of help with the lever and preferably some soap in the water - or Sealant...

 Seems like nothing compares to cushcore from what I hear, I've never used inserts. Anyone have an opinion that other brands can compete? I've heard some pretty good things about the tannus tubeless inserts though. Also waki vs doublecrown troll battle ftw!
  • 5 2
 @DylanH93: Procore is best but only between the time it is installed with no leaks and between you flat... and you can flat anything, destroy a rim and what have you. It’s a btch to install and I have no time for this nor will to be covered in sealant. Cushcore is second. Haven’t tried he lightweight one. For XC or Enduro front tire, Pepis tire noodle is very good. Heard T-Anus is good too... Huck Norris - only for XC.

As to DCA I am still waiting for a video of him riding. I’ll lay pancakes above his head and whip his bum until then

 Seeing how expensive these mudguards and things are, I swear down I can make that mudguard in my ex university workshop for less than 10 cents, I think I may open a business of custom mudguards and caps were everything will cost under 2 euro

 It's way cheaper to make a mudguard than customize it my friend Wink Don't forget about the artist that draw then... If not, we would sell picassos for 10 bucks as it's simply a canvas with paint lol

 20€ for a mudguard, yes, no.
And does "Help to finish your run flat" should be listed as pros when selling a tyre insert?
  • 1 0
 For 20€ you can 3D print like 50+ of these. Minus the flashy design of course.

 As for the runflat aspect of the inserts, pinchflats aren't the only reason you might get a flat tire, so it makes sense to advertise. Then again, having worked with and ridden similar inserts, they don't offer as much protection as other systems and add no sidewall support.

 Stylish and zany to remind us not to take the sport so seriously.

 I always have a mudguard installed to protect my overpriced fork...and I like the ability to customize the graphics, but Fox forks already have threaded bosses. You can install a molded plastic fork with screws and not use rubbing zip ties to secure it. I know the investment in tooling something up to fit is way more than laser cutting stock and digital printing but I like the integrated look and it closes off all the ribs so they don't fill with mud too.

 It may just be me, but selling frame protection kits with unique art, and not actually letting you see the designs before you buy them is kind of strange.

 I like their designs and and have a few of their mudguards for my bikes, in fact I just bought one yesterday for my new bike. Well made, good designs, quick shipping, I can't fault them.

If I ever want tire inserts (I don't ride hard enough these days), I'd give them a try. Sealant? Not so sure - I was caught out using 'Peaty's Sealant' when it first came out a few years ago, when the first batches weren't up to scratch, so I'm very very loathe to move away from Stan's there - despite the banana smell! (And my Balcony is still covered in glitter!).

 Amazing mudguards, the customization tool is very well made. It's a nice present idea to make a custom mudguard that matches your friend's bike

 never had a mudguard on my bike, do these tiny ones do anything or am I better off getting something like a mudhugger?

 I would go for a Mudhugger, no advantage of a smaller one in my opinion

 They do a lot imo. You can get them for less than 5 bucks elsewhere though.

 @colincolin: Yep, they do a surprising ammount of work for their small size. They catch the water & dirt which otherwise would make it's way through between your fork stanchions and get blown back in your face by the headwind.
  • 2 1
 they keep a good amount of dirt from making it's way to your fork seals, but they offer little to no protection to the rider
  • 2 1
 They do what they're supposed to do. Catch mud thrown up by the front wheel and prevent your face from being blasted by dirt. You'll obviously still get splattered by trail debris no matter what, but your goggles will not be caked after the first corner. They won't keep your lower body clean though. They're mostly about keeping your vision clear. Bigger ones like mud hugger work even better. I have the medium and large sized Zefal fenders and they look and work great imho. They're also relatively cheap.

 I've always used a mudguard. Less for the mud and more for the dry summer months where it's super dusty. Definitely helps reduce dust on the fork stanchions and headset area. Plus there are pretty cheap one and I like the look.

 I tried the insert, its a little better than first gen HuckNorris but far from as good as rimpackt/panzer.
I like the Mudguard.

 It means he gets paid to do so. He'd probably run fresh baguettes if he was sponsored by the local bakery.

 Et is the cleanest rider ever so he obviously doesn't need this! I just install their foam to protect my new set of wheel that I already pocked on a landing. Easy and light, not the burliiest option fit sure, but just buy what you need (and stop trashing like all the thread does!)
