CushCore 27.5 PRO Rim Protection, Single
CushCore PRO tire inserts are designed to provide maximum protection to your rims and tires. As your tire compresses it exposes your rim to impacts as well as exposing your tire sidewall to “snake bite” cuts from the rim edge.
CushCore PRO will help stabilize your sidewalls allowing for lower riding PSI and better grip without sacrificing your rims to speed!
CushCore PRO is designed for tire widths 2.1â€³ to 2.6â€³ and inner rim widths 22mm to 35mm.
Along with protecting your rims and tires CushCore also modifies the air ramp, like a volume spacer in your suspension. This provides you the ability to run a lower PSI in your tires for grip while utilizing the rising PSI as the tire compresses for support.
Many riders will use the CushCore 27.5 PRO Rim Protection as a pair, however there are other popular options as well.
Not quite an aggressive of a rider? Maybe you just need a CushCore 27.5 XC Rim Protection in the rear tire for the occasional, shall we say, miss?
Maybe you’re riding a bit more aggressive, but want to save some weight. Using the CushCore 27.5″ XC Rim Protection in the front and the burlier CushCore PRO in the rear is an option.

Installing CushCore: some tips and tricks are still helpful. CushCore has a variety of media to help you – the most important trick seems to be using a trash can to allow you to purposefully drive a tire lever vertically against the tire bead.
Don’t worry – it gets easier! Plus, it’s a lot easier (not to mention much less expensive) than rebuilding a cracked rim.
