CushCore® (Patent Pending) is an engineered foam insert that mounts inside a mountain bike tire. It divides the tire roughly in half, with CushCore next to the rim and a tunable air pocket under the tread. It stabilizes the tire casing while allowing the tread patch to remain flexible and sensitive. It provides incredible traction. It reduces impact force by 50%. It radically changes the way your bike interacts with the ground.
How it Works
Tires are an essential part of a mountain bike’s suspension system. Tires can absorb some types of bumps much more efficiently than even the best suspension fork or shock.
Any suspension system has two basic components: a spring and a damper. The spring supports the load, and the damper dissipates energy. Ideally, our tires would act more like a suspension system, helping dissipate unwanted energy to keep the wheels on the ground and under control.
CushCore delivers that technology to tires for the first time. It is an engineered foam insert that mounts inside a mountain bike tire and divides the inner volume of the tire in half, with air underneath the tread patch and the CushCore insert next to the rim. They work together as a spring and damper – in other words, an Inner-Tire Suspension System.
