After testing six inserts back-to-back in a Vital MTB Face Off, we found CushCore provided the best overall performance. Not only did the system take the sting off sharp impacts, it improved the overall feel of our bikes by smoothing out chattery sections and helping to tame chaos as it came at us on the trail.

Now we get to pass some on to you!

Has anyone had any experience comparing Nukeproof's ARD system to Cushcore or other brands? It's way cheaper than Cushcore, so I'm curious as to how comparable they are. I know a bunch of EWS guys ran them the last year or so.

BTW, I use Cushcore ony DH bike and it's an amazing product. Zero rock to rim dings and that feel of having a "dampener" in your tire is noticeable in a good way. At 200 pounds, I've also run my psi lower than ever before, so that's been a real positive as well.

Thanks to Vital for the review and the giveaway.

I've got a Magic Mary in front and a Minion DHF on the back. Not sure which casing, but not the wire bead DH.

psi without Cushcore:
Front: 27
Back: 29 or 30

With drop each psi by 2-3 and no trouble at all.

At the moment I've been using Huck Norris with Magic Mary's 27.5/2.35s
I'm 94kg with gear
Running psi 24..

A couple of riding buddies reckon Cushcore is far superior..better rim protection, better ride and all round feel..

Looking to run Maxxis Minions, HR2s or maybe Assegais...2.5s
