Rimpact PRO/ORIGINAL Tyre Inserts
Contents Per Pack:
- 1x PRO Tyre Insert
- 1X ORIGINAL Tyre Insert
- 2x 44mm Rimpact Unblockable Valves
This product is a mixture of a lighter Original Insert designed to be run up front and a more protective PRO insert to run in the rear where most harder impacts occur. This way your front tyre can be run at lower pressure for grip without sacrificing support, but the overall set up is ~50g lighter than a full fat PRO set up front and rear. If you select 29″/27.5″ Mullet, the 29″ will be the Original insert.
Rimpact PRO is Rimpact’s most protective insert. It utilises an Energy Sensitive layer in conjunction with Rimpact ORIGINAL Foam to harden on impact and dissipate extreme forces across itself and the foam below rather than into the rim. The material remains supple and malleable meaning its easy to install yet when it counts, Rimpact steps it up to maximum protection mode and allows you to ride it out when there’s no easy line choice!

Suitable for rims with an inner diameter of 23mm – 35mm and tyre widths 2.3″ – 2.6″. It is possible to use the insert with narrower or wider tyre but it will increase the difficulty of fitting. Do not purchase if your rims are out side of this spec, Plus inserts are available for wider rims.
Use about 25% more sealant than recommended on the bottle to ensure the extra surface area of the insert is coated with plenty of fluid to spare. Our inserts are closed cell and cannot absorb liquid however some sealant will cling to the outside of the insert requiring a slightly higher dosage. It can be injected through Rimpact Valves or poured directly into the tyre.
Weight: approx for PRO – 160g per insert for 29″, 150g approx for 27.5″ | for ORIGINAL approx 90g for 27.5 and 95g for 29″.
