I've been running Tannus Armour on all my bikes for afew years, and the inserts are something I won't ride without anymore. I usemainly tubeless set ups, and the confidence in stability, traction and ridefeel I get have made my ride experience so much better.
Tannus is fantastic because you have the security of protecting the rim but at the same time you have a natural ride that no insert can give you.
It helped us offer the E-Bike experience without any worries about punctures and damage to the rim.
We have been using it for years and it is the best balance between driving sensitivity, smoothness and wheel protection!
The added suspension dampening is the best I have experienced
AVERAGE REDUCTION OF PUNCTURES
Armour is positioned between the inner tube and the tire. It offers 15 mm of extra protection under the tread and 2-5 mm on the sides of the tire. Armour increases puncture protection, reduces maintenance and increases comfort.
Armour greatly reduces rim damage
90% Less Punctures
Armour drastically reduces punctures
Side wall support
The insert reduces lateral cuts and internally supports the tire shoulder allowing the rider to have extra lateral support even at low pressures
Perfetto grazie sempre al top in tre anni non ho mai bucato
My opinion is positive given that it is already the second order
360° Anti-puncture Protection
Don't let punctures stop you in your tracks! Tannus Armour prevents around 90% of punctures thanks to its reinforced wings and almost 360° protection around the inner tube. Armour will drastically reduce the number of punctures due to thorns, glass and pinching.
Rim Damage Reduction
Tannus Armour absorbs impacts and prevents damage to the rim. In fact, its special polymer compound is designed to absorb even the smallest vibrations.
Traction, control, confidence when cornering! The special Armour structure supports the lateral shoulder allowing the cyclist to inflate the tire at lower pressures thus increasing grip and at the same time avoiding lateral beading
Do you have any questions? We are here to help you
How do I choose the correct size?
The size of Tannus Armour corresponds exactly to the size of the tire on which they are applied.
Example: Do you have a 29x2.20 tire? The Armour that's right for you is 29x1.95-2.50
Can I use it with tubeless set-up?
We recommend not using Tannus Armour with a tubeless setup. Using the inner tube eliminates the burp effect, drastically reduces direct punctures and lateral cutting and increases ease of use.
How do they ride on road bikes?
They were designed for mountain bikes, Enduro, DH and gravel but are also perfect for city bikes and cycle touring but in general at low pressures.
Although compatible, we do not recommend Tannus Armour in an exclusively road setup due to the high pressures of use. On racing bikes we instead recommend Tannus Airless
Can I use Tubeless Sealant with Tannus Armour?
No, the insert is designed to be used exclusively with an inner tube.
Be careful to clean the tire and rim well from any sealant residues in the event of a setup change from Tubeless to inner tube
At what pressure should I use Armor?
The choice of pressure is personal. We suggest to inflate approximately 0.1-0.5 atm less than the pressure previously used.
ATTENTION: do not go below 0.8 Atm (risk of pinching) and avoid inflating beyond 3 atm to avoid excessive compression of the material
