The Banger Tire Insert Absorbs Shock and Eliminates Flats

Mountain biking puts a high level of stress on one's tires, and one false turn can result in a flat (and a wasted excursion,) which is why the Banger tire exists. The "technopolymer" tire insert changes the composition of mountain bike tires, maintaining their shock and vibration absorption while eliminating the potential for flat tires.

The Banger tire insert is essentially a foam tube that riders place within their tire of choice. The tube fills the majority of the tire, reducing the volume of air inside by 95 percent. The specially engineered compound nonetheless performs similarly to air-filled tires, smoothing out impacts rather than elastically rebounding (as is the case with other tire inserts.)

The insert purportedly assembles with any tubeless tire system in as little as little as 10 seconds, so it wont put a dent in riding time either.
