Thanks, it's not on the Aus tannus site.There is also tubeless armour :
RedBull riders Tom Van Steenbergen and Reece Wallace ride Tannus Armour Tubeless, lightweight rim protector. Compared to Cushcore, Huck Norris, Armour is much more easy to install, lighter. Value for money.tannus.co.uk
It doesn't work on upside down tyres.Thanks, it's not on the Aus tannus site.
Gotta ask...why bother? Tannus means no tubeless gunk for me, and I live with the dead feel as the price
Is another 150 grams a big deal on 23kilo + bikes ?It doesn't work on upside down tyres.
Marketing ? Grab part of the tubeless market ? The runflat idea is nice I guess .. but you're not going to actually ride properly like that and it's another 150g a tyre. Would make more sense in my head just to run a 150g heavier/stronger/more puncture resilient tyre ?
In theory no, as a comparison to the weight of the bike as a whole. But, it's 150g of unsprung weight which can make a huge difference to handling and performance. The bike will accelerate slower, turn slower, the suspension won't be as effective or efficient.Is another 150 grams a big deal on 23kilo + bikes ?
There's something about tannus that gives a dead feeling, particularly on the front. I've never been able to decide if it's the foam slowing down the tyres response / dampening out small input, or if it's weight related. It definitely isn't fixed by adjusting tyre pressure , and it's not a traction issue - just harder to bounce of things. I've tried adjusting fork pressure and dampening but can't seem to fix it.Is another 150 grams a big deal on 23kilo + bikes ?
